Ingredients

Gingerbread Cookie Dough

  • 1 batch easy keto caramel sauce *substitute Sukrin brown sugar for the monkfruit sweetener for a richer flavour
  • 1 cup almond flour 112g
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour 7g (or 3 extra tablespoons of almond flour)
  • pinch of salt 1/8 tsp if using unsalted butter in the caramel
  • 1 tsp ginger ground
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/8 tsp cloves

Cream Cheese Glaze

Instructions

  • 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!
  • Set the caramel sauce aside to cool.
  • 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).
  • Once the caramel sauce has cooled to room temperature and thickened, add the dry ingredients and stir until you get a thick batter.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Roll the chilled gingerbread bites in the cream cheese  glaze until fully coated. (I like to use a small spoon for this).
  • 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!

Tips

  • Place you're caramel sauce in the fridge to cool it faster.

  • These are also great with nuts or seeds added!
