Instructions

Instructions are for 30 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Mix the water and spices in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add the butter. Stir until melted. The cinnamon will make the consistency a bit slimy.
  2. Mix all of the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the spice mixture and egg white. Mix thoroughly and shape the dough into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to let the flavors mature.
  3. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).
  4. Cut the dough in half and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough. Placing the dough between two pieces of parchment paper is the easiest. When flattened, the dough should be about 1/8 inch (3 mm) thick. Using cookie cutters, cut the gingerbread cookies into shapes. Use a spatula to carefully move them to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Bake the cookies for 7-9 minutes or until lightly browned. Lower the heat to 200°F (100°C) and continue to bake them for about 30 minutes or until crisp depending on the size and thickness of the cookies.
  6. Let the cookies cool completely on a cooling rack before serving or decorating them.

Tip!

For a more traditional Swedish experience, we suggest serving these gingerbread cookies with a schmear of butter and some crumbled blue cheese. It may sound like an odd combination, but it is a delicious treat and a sophisticated flavor combination for holiday hors d'oeuvres.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    Thank you Jill Wallentin! These cookies are delicious! Knowing the ounces/grams per serving for the 1 gram of carbs would be helpful. Thanks again!

    Could you post the original recipe or email it to me? It didn’t contain the almond flour or the psyllium husk powder. I used to use it for my son who is on a restricted diet due to a medical condition. It was one of the few recipes that didn’t have almond flour in which meant I could send it into school (his school is a nut free zone).

    We have not tested this recipe with coconut oil. It doesn't always react with the other ingredients in the same way that butter does.
