Gluten Free Almond Flour Ginger Snaps

These gluten-free ginger snaps are made with almond flour and flavored with plenty of ground ginger and a hint of ground cinnamon. Fresh out of the oven, they’re crunchy, and great with a steeping cup of tea. Best eaten within the same day of baking, but if not, store in an airtight container. Dough can also be prepared before hand and frozen until ready to be baked.




These gluten free ginger snaps are low carb, high protein and super healthy because of the almond flour dough.
