Makes 24 Gingerbread Cookies

  • 2 1/4 cup almond flour                  
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder   
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger 1
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves              
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg              
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder  
  • 1/8 tsp salt             
  • 1/2 cup erythritol powder                  
  • 3 tbsp softened butter 
  • 1 large egg     
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 

Preheat oven 177 degrees C

Step 1. In a bowl, mix the almond flour, cinnamon, ground ginger, ground cloves, nutmeg and baking powder.

Step 2. In a separate bowl, mix in the butter and erythritol powder using a hand mixer for 1-2 minutes, until fluffy. Mix in the egg and vanilla extract and combine the almond flour mixture until a dough forms.

Step 3. Roll out the dough on top of baking paper to a thickness of about ¼ inch (just over half a centimeter).

Step 4. Use your Gingerbread Cookie Cutters to cut out cookie shapes and transfer to clean baking paper.

Step 5. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are golden

Step 6. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool. 

Step 7. Enjoy!

Decoration Notes: 

Create some Keto Frosting by mixing erythritol and cream cheese together (with a dash of food color), and apply using a piping bag.
