Keto Cream Cheese Ginger Cinnamon Cookies


If you happened to read our recipe for Keto Ginger Ale, you may recall how we mentioned ginger is considered one of those Asian ‘old wives-tale’ cure-all ingredients.

Ginger does it all, from boosting your immune system to keeping you warm during the winter months.  So with all these health benefits, we try to integrate and experiment with ginger whenever we can.

As we were testing our cookie recipes, we figured we might as well make some batches of ginger cookies and see how it turns out.

Our initial thought was this would be a disaster, but then we realized there are other desserts and sweets made with ginger, like gingerbread cookies, ginger candy, ginger cake, so it might actually turn out OK.

When we first tried making these ginger cookies, we tried using fresh ginger mixed with monkfruit and cooked down to a thick syrup.

But we soon realized that ginger chunks in cookies were not ideal so we went with ground ginger.  After a few test batches, we found the perfect recipe!

To our delight, these cookies came out tasting like a mix between a ginger snap and a snickerdoodle.  There is an addictive quality about these cookies that make them irresistible!

So, if you are a fan of ginger snap cookies and/or snickerdoodles, give these keto cream cheese ginger cinnamon cookies a try!

It’s just like a low-carb/keto snicker doodle cookie and how can you go wrong with that!

It doesn’t happen every time, but it’s a great feeling when an experiment pans out!  Hope you guys enjoy this one!
