It’s that time of yeaaaaar! Christmas products are in stores and Christmas movies are on the TV so it’s time to bake some of those perfect fall and winter cookies – keto chewy gingerbread cookies!
Previously I have made keto gingerbread cookies but they were more hard and crispy. This time I wanted to make something that was chewy.
The base of these keto chewy gingerbread cookies are actually from my keto chocolate chip cookie recipe (which is one of my favourite cookies by the way!!!) and are so incredibly easy to make. You just have to throw everything into a mixer and MIX! So simple.
What you will need to make these decadent chewy delicious cookies:
- Almond flour
- Whey Isolate
- Large egg
- Powdered ginger
- Baking soda
- xanthan gum
- Brown sugar substitute
If you haven’t checked out my keto chocolate chip cookies – I HIGHLY recommend it. They are just perfect and you can’t even tell they are keto friendly.
My lemon cookies are also one of my more popular cookie recipes. These only use almond flour and do not call for whey isolate.
Drop me a comment below if you try these out!
