Keto Gingerbread Men

A childhood classic, these low carb adaptations of traditional gingerbread men are perfectly chewy and sweet with all the staple flavors of gingerbread.

Although the recipe calls for xylitol, you can substitute this for your preferred low carb granulated sweetener of choice. You could also use any shaped cookie cutter you prefer.

These are a great treat for grownups and kids alike!

      My husband is allergic to coconut....would avocado oil work (and if not, what other oil do you suggest)?
