Chocolate gingerbread cookies made with real cacao are a classic spin on the holiday classic.
If you live a primal lifestyle, you’ll probably prefer an alternative to traditional cookies made with flour.
Enjoy a sweet and spicy treat with these grain-free chocolate gingerbread cookie bites! A fresh take on a traditional dessert, this grain-free comfort food recipe is a must-try!
I personally love fresh ginger for its taste and nutritional benefits, but it can be a touch strong for young pallets. If you are working towards healthier snack options, especially with your kids, you could start with crystallized ginger, or a combination of fresh and “candied” (just remember that this will add more sugar).
Get your kids involved with this recipe by having them measure out the ingredients and add them to the food processor. Rolling the bites is another great activity for kids of all ages to help you with. Kids love this primal twist on classic chocolate gingerbread cookies!
Making some type of “snack bites” each week helps keep my kids well fueled with quality ingredients that they also love the taste of. Give these other flavors a try as well: Cookie Dough Bites, Healthy Edible Cookie Dough, Cranberry Macadamia Bites, and Tropical Turmeric Bites.
