Gingerbread Cookies

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! :)

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! ?
