Keto Soft & Chewy Ginger Cookie
Updated: Dec 5, 2022
Love me a soft, chewy cookie, this ginger one is so buttery, sweet and packed with ginger flavor, absolutely delicious! I used the packable brown sugar substitute to figure this one out because it has extra ingredients to make it taste more like regular brown sugar. Plus it has extra moisture in it which lends well to a softer, chewier cookie.
To figure out a chewy ginger cookie, I used the same ingredients I used for my keto chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe. I've tried changing these ingredients up but never get as good of a result as I do with these ingredients. Arrowroot powder and gelatin is the combo I use. I'm guessing using xanthan gum may give a similar effect as the gelatin but I haven't tried what ratios would work.
