Ginger is one of my favorite flavors for sure, and so it makes sense that I’m head-over-heels for these low carb vegan gingerbread cookies. Like the other treats I’ve been baking lately, they’re nut-free for those of us with nut allergies, as well as gluten free, grain free, vegan and…you get the gist. These cookies were so simple to make, and well worth it. Each little guy is only half a gram of net carbs, which is pretty great, in my opinion.
I’m getting in the holiday spirit pretty early this year – now that I’m working from home (yay, lack of commute!), I’ve got a lot more time for baking things every day. So, I’m submitting these low carb gingerbread cookies as an early holiday offering. They’re on the softer side, which is (for the most part) how I like my cookies, and not too sweet – in other words, they’re perfect. 😉
If you want to get a jump on your low carb Christmas cookie baking this year, I strongly suggest adding these little guys to your To Do list. They’ve got my whole apartment smelling warm and delicious!
Notes on baking low carb gingerbread cookies:
- I used 2 tbsp of Swerve granulated sweetener, but if you like things a little bit on the sweeter side, you could very easily double this.
- This recipe makes about 20 mini cookies (2.5″ tall), and uses the little guy from this cookie cutter set – I like little things better for portion control, and cuteness 🙂
- I used this gingerbread spice recipe from Stupid Easy Paleo, but if you don’t have those spices on hand – 1 tsp of ginger with 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice should easily approximate a good gingerbread spice mix!
- For the super spice-deficient, 1 tsp ginger and 1 tsp cinnamon with a pinch of nutmeg, or clove or allspice (whatever you have!) will cut it 😉
- I used Trader Joe’s vegan cream cheese and Earth Balance buttery spread, but any brand should do!
