Gingerbread Cookies

Serves: 6

Happy Thursday! I am really excited today because the boyfriend and I are going to pick up our Christmas Tree tonight so we can decorate it on Saturday! I love walking around trying to find the ‘perfect’ tree! I have had the furniture moved and the tree skirt out since Sunday! Yes, I’m a little excited! I figured, why not kick off this great day with a simple and delicious cookie that reminds me of all things Christmas! Gingerbread is one of my favorite desserts, but these cookies take that to a whole new level! The best part is there is no eggs, flour, sugar and can be made paleo by subbing apple sauce for the yogurt! I hope you enjoy! :)

Fit Ingredients

  • 1c (112g) almond flour
  • 1tbs (15g) psyllium husk
  • 1/2c baking stevia (adjust to desired sweetness level)
  • 1tbs baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4c sugar free maple syrup (or regular) (or molasses)
  • 1c (226g) greek yogurt (or apple sauce for paleo version)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper



1. Pre heat your oven to 375 degrees.

2. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.

3. In a bowl combine your dry ingredients: almond flour, psyllium husk, stevia, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves.

4. Add your wet ingredients: maple syrup, greek yogurt and vanilla extract to your dry ingredients. Mix well.

5. Divide your batter into 6 cookies.

6. Bake for about 25 minutes or until just set.

7. Allow the cookies to cool*

*The cookies will seem very soft at first, but they will set more while they are cooling.

So how did they turn out? Holy delicious!! These are up in my top favorite winter recipes so far! They were soft and chewy and tasted exactly like gingerbread! Plus there are no eggs or sugar! And they can easily be made into a paleo version by subbing the greek yogurt for applesauce! I gave the boyfriend one to taste test and he loved them….and I might have kept the other 5 all for myself because I couldn’t stand to share another one! ?
