Paleo Gingerbread Cookies Recipe

You know how during Thanksgiving everything is pumpkin spice? Well for this girl, during Christmas everything is Gingerbread!!! I looovvveeee gingerbread; however, I was having a heck of a time making a healthy Gingerbread Cookie Recipe. This recipe took me quite a few tries, a whole lotta ingredients, and a lot of love. I am so excited to say that I finally perfected it and just in time for all your Christmas festivities!

  2. 1/2 cup protein powder of choice (I like this pea protein)
  3. 1/4 cup tapioca starch

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Prepare cookie sheet by spraying the sheet with coconut oil spray
  3. Add all dry ingredients together. Smell and decide if you would like to add more spices.
  4. Add all wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix well until dough is formed.
  5. Roll dough out on a cutting board. Make sure that the dough is quite thin. I sprinkled some tapioca starch on the board to make sure that the dough didn't stick. I also rubbed some of the starch onto my rolling pin.
  6. Use whatever cookie cutter you like.
  7. Bake for 7 minutes.
  8. Allow cookies to cool slightly prior to placing them on the cooling rack.
  9. Serve
