Low Carb, Sugar Free Gingerbread Men (or women!) #LCHF #Christmas #SugarFree #Keto
Tis the season to indulge, but we can still stay on track. These work out around 4g of carbs per biscuit, so for those following a very strict Keto/LCHF regime, these can add up, but I find them perfect for the whole family, including those who are not sugar-free. They harden as they cool and should have a nice crisp snap once completely cold. I dont decorate mine as I am not a fan of sugar-free icing, but feel free to let your creativity flow with some sugar-free icing, which can be coloured with food colouring.
