Keto Ginger Snaps
Updated: Dec 5, 2022
It's not my thing but I know many people like crisp ginger snap cookies so I thought I should get on it this year, along with a chewy ginger cookie (https://www.ketoupgrade.info/post/keto-soft-chewy-ginger-cookie )! I feel like getting crispy keto cookies is kind of a pain, I believe the secret is the egg white protein. I used my husband as a guinea pig for these cookies, he likes them dipped in milk and he said they taste like a ginger snap.
For the crispy cookie I suggest the golden monkfruit/erythritol blend. You can cook the cookie a little less and still get a crispy cookie. You can use a swerve type brown sugar but I suggest cooking for a few extra minutes to get it nice and crispy all the way through. You can also under bake this cookie and it will be a cross between a soft and crispy cookie.

I just chose a highly rated regular ginger snap cookie so the spices and amounts can be customized if you have a favorite ginger snap recipe with certain amounts of spices or extracts, you can use those amounts.
