Sugar-free Cookies ~ EASY Gingerbread Men ~ Paleo

gingermen

Grain free, sugar-free cookies with no preservatives or additives, just wholesome goodness!

My boys get excited anytime they get to eat food in various shapes and forms. I am often making monster faces and smiley face arrangements with their food. Thus, when I found a cookie cutter in the shape of a little man, I had to buy it. It has been a huge hit to say the least.  Since we loved the butter cookie men I made previously, (and we love ginger snaps) I wanted to spice that recipe up with a few extra ingredients, namely ginger, and try it again. Well, thankfully they turned out to be a super delicious, sugar-free cookie!
