Macro-friendly gingerbread cookies
Ingredients (For 18 cookies):
-100 grams coconut flour (or flour of choice – coconut flour does leave a slight coconut taste to the cookie)
-65 grams protein powder (vanilla, cake batter, or similar are good options)
-3/4 tsp corn starch
-1/4 tsp baking powder
-1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-1/8 tsp nutmeg
-1/8 tsp cloves
-1/4 tsp salt
-28 grams light butter spread (melted)
-46 grams egg beaters
-1/4 cup molasses
-1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-1 tsp stevia
-If using coconut flour, 3/4 cup-1 cup of water
Mix together all of the dry ingredients. In separate bowl, mix together butter, egg beaters, molasses, and vanilla extract. Mix together wet and dry ingredients. If using coconut flour, add in 3/4 -1 cup of water until dough combines. If using other flour, batter should be fine without additional water. Refrigerate dough for one hour. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Once chilled, roll out dough to about 1/8” thick. Use cookie cutter to cut out your cookies into 18 cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!
