LOW CARB GINGERBREAD COOKIES
Low Carb Gingerbread Cookies are always a must on our Christmas table.
This is one Xmas cookie, which needs to be in the house, even though you do not want to bake anything else.
Originally in my country, they have been decorated either with walnuts or almonds as I did this time.
With my older daughter, when she was small and we were still in the sugar-land lifestyle, we used to make icing in different colours and decorate the cookies with it afterwards.
I still do it now and then as a low carb version, but almonds are just always the fastest and safest way. And it makes it 100% perfect.
And of course I had to come up with low-carb version, since, we have to have them on the table.
This recipe is I guess the 3rd one. The other 2 I will post some other time, but I believe this one is really close to the real deal.
I have added protein powder, which will keep them a bit crunchy and more like cookies in taste.
Well but its up to you to decide and let me know how they are.
As a honey replacement, I have used Sukrin liquid brown honey supplement, which is my favourite and could be used anywhere the recipe asks for honey.
We have already used this recipe for Easter as well. Actually you can use it on any occasions. All you have to do, is change the cookie cutter into the design you need.
And of course I had to make a video for this, so you can just see how fast and easy this is to bake.
Hope you will enjoy it as much as we do and please do let me know if you have any questions.
