High Protein Gingerbread Cookies

   High Protein Gingerbread Cookies  It’s officially Fall!!… or at least that’s what my newsfeed keeps telling me. It’s still topping 90 degrees around here everyday, but that hasn’t stopped my love for all the delicious fall foods and recipes coming out. Pumpkin, cranberry, squash, apples, gingerbread… you name it… I love pretty much all the fall foods

This summer, I posted my High Protein Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe… and you guys LOVED it! It’s the most popular recipe on my website to date, so I figured maybe I was on to something here and you all would want to try another flavor variety? Because, let’s be honest cookies are good regardless of what the temperature is outside. 

These High Protein Gingerbread Cookies are insanely delicious, low sugar (just a little sweetness from some maple syrup), high fiber, high protein, gluten free, and vegan… so, I think it’s safe to say they’re safe for almost everyone. I hope you enjoy them as much as our family does!
