Keto Gingerbread Cream Cheese Bites

Keto Gingerbread Cream Cheese Bites

If you like gingerbread cookies but hate the effort that goes into making them.. then this recipe is for you!

These Keto Gingerbread Cream Cheese Bites are delicious!! They are definitely not your average no bake keto fat bomb or keto ball recipe. 

These little gingerbread bites are made using my low carb keto caramel sauce.  

But for this recipe we use Sukrin brown as the sweetener rather than the usual powdered monkfruit/erythritol sweetener to get a stronger “brown sugar” flavour.

This also gives us a darker looking caramel sauce. The caramel sauce provides that almost molasses-like flavour that we often miss in keto gingerbread recipes. 

Then we add plenty of spices including, ginger (of course!), cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. 

For the binder, I used mostly almond flour but added just a touch of coconut flour just to thicken things up a bit. You could just use extra almond flour but I find the coconut flour really brings everything together and seems to almost smooth out the dough a bit. 

Once we've rolled this batter into little balls and allowed them to chill for a bit, we can prepare the low carb cream cheese glaze!

The glaze is simply cream cheese, powdered monkfruit/erythritol sweetener, vanilla extract, and a touch of some sort of milk to bring everything together. 

Once we coat each little Gingerbread cookie bite in the cream cheese mixture, we can set them on a piece of parchment paper to set. (Just before the sugar free glaze sets, I like to sprinkle a few Stoka Sugar Free Sprinkles (use SAMMYSAM for 20% OFF!)

Keto Gingerbread Cream Cheese Bites Recipe

Serves: 10

Gingerbread Cookie Dough

Cream Cheese Glaze

Directions:

  1. Follow my directions for making easy caramel sauce. Remember to use Sukrin brown sweetener instead of powdered monkfruit/erythritol sweetener for a richer flavour. You can also add 1/2 tsp molasses for minimal additional carbs and an even more intense flavour!
  2. Set the caramel sauce aside to cool. 
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together your almond flour, coconut flour, spices and salt in another bowl (as you can see in the photos, I didn't even bother with a second bowl, lol).
  4. Once the caramel sauce has cooled to room temperature and thickened, add the dry ingredients and stir until you get a thick batter.
  5. Roll the batter into balls and place them on a parchment lined plate. Place the place in the fridge or freezer for 1-2 hours uncovered to let them firm up. 
  6. To make the glaze, whisk together the 4 ingredients including cream cheese, powdered monkfruit erythritol sweetener, light cream or low carb milk and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Continue to whisk until smooth (it should be quite thick but you can add a touch of additional milk/cream if you find it difficult to work with). 
  7. Roll the chilled gingerbread bites in the cream cheese  glaze until fully coated. (I like to use a small spoon for this).
  8. Place the coated gingerbread bites back on the parchment lined plate and back in the fridge or freezer to set for another 1-2 hours. Then enjoy!
