Protein Gingerbread Cookies 


It’s officially Christmas week and nothing says Christmas like cookies…especially gingerbread cookies!
I’ve tried and tested this recipe a few times and i’m so happy with the results! These ginger cookies are macro friendly, crispy on the outside and slightly chewy in the middle! Yum!
Not to mention they’re gluten free, high in protein, rich in ginger taste and seriously addictive. What’s not to love!
This batter can even be shaped into gingerbread cookies and decorated as you wish.
I hope you enjoy these cookies and that you are all embracing the build up to christmas. Happy Holidays.
