Gingerbread “Shortbread” Men Cookies

Christmas doesn’t feel like Christmas without Gingerbread men! Need a yummy cookie recipe for Santa? I got you! These little mini cookies are packed with flavor, collagen and protein. I used Vital Proteins new Gingerbread Collagen Creamer and just a short list of ingredients to make these little guys!

These cookies are super low in sugar with only 3TB of Maple in the whole batch + gluten free, dairy free, egg free and paleo!. Plus, they are so easy to make!

I love The Maple Guild's maple syrup so much. It's my preferred maple for all baking recipes.

For a “sweet” trick on 1-ingredient frosting - pun intended - use some maple butter, also known as maple cream. It's sweet, only has 1 ingredient and tastes rich and creamy. It's the perfect combo for this delicious gingerbread cookie.



2/3 cups coconut flour

2 scoops Vital Protein's Gingerbread Collagen Creamer

pinch sea salt

3 TB Maple Syrup

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/8 tsp ginger

1/8 tsp cinnamon


Maple Cream


Mix coconut oil and maple until well combined.

Add in the rest of ingredients, mix well.

The dough might seem crumbly, just use your hands and form into a ball.

Roll out between parchment paper, about 1/4 inch. The dough will be delicate but easy to use cookie cutters with. Using a spatula, put the cookies on baking sheet and bake at 350 for 7-8 min until golden brown edges.

Eat plain or use some maple cream! Enjoy
