Ginger Cookies you have to make this Christmas!

This week I am sharing a ginger cookie recipe you have to make this Christmas! These ginger cookies are absolutely delicious and are great for getting you in the Christmas spirit! 

The macros are listed below, this recipe is fairly low in sugar and primarily made with wholemeal carbohydrates. The fat content is slightly high, but will help with slowing down digestion, and it is the festive season so it is absolutely fine to have a treat! 

I added 1 tsp of fresh ginger for a more subtle taste, but if you prefer a stronger taste, I recommend adding at least 2 tsp of fresh ginger to your cookie mixture.
