These are seriously THE BEST KETO gingerbread cookies you will ever taste!
Great for decorating and easy to work with! DEFINITELY my fav Christmas cookie this year to eat.
KETO GINGERBREAD COOKIES
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 2/3 cup Golden erythritol / monk fruit
- 1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
- 1 cup unsalted butter cut into 1/2-inch pieces – cool but still soft
- 2 tablespoons cream cheese – soft
- 2 teaspoons pure maple extract
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp allspice
- 1 egg
- 3 tsp of black strap molasses organic (optional, makes it taste more authentic and colors the dough darker )
- Preheat oven to 325 Degrees F.
In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment turned to low speed, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, spices and salt together until combined.
Add the butter, 1 cube at a time, and mix until the dough looks crumbly and slightly wet about 2 minutes.
Add the egg, maple extract, molasses and beat for another minute until the dough just begins to form large clumps.
knead dough with hands just until it sticks together well. Roll into a ball. Wrap in plastic and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mat (I USE THIS ONE). Set aside. When ready to roll, remove and unwrap one dough ball from the fridge.
Place a large piece of parchment paper on a flat surface. Place dough in the center. Place another large parchment paper on top of the dough and using your rolling pin, roll out into 1/4 inch thickness. Cut
cookies using cookie cutters and place on baking mat or parchment paper.
Bake cookies on the middle rack for 10-12 minutes. If they are starting to become golden then remove right away.
Do not burn.
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
Do not move, touch or bother the cookies when you take them out of the oven. They need to cool to harden. See below for guidance pictures.
