Skinny Gingerbread Cookies

Healthy Gingerbread Cookies

This is the last weekend before Christmas , so if you haven’t starting you holiday baking, you BEST get to it!

I partnered with Born Sweet to create a healthy holiday recipe using their Zing Baking Blend. It’s an all natural blend of real cane sugar and stevia (one of my favorite ways to sweeten healthy treats!), which makes it a perfect low-calorie way to bake some holiday cookies!

These Skinny Gingerbread Cookies are the perfect way to enjoy some holiday treats, they are actually very simple to make, AND they taste amazing! Even Nik who always has something to say about my healthy treats LOVED them and couldn’t even tell that they were healthy! (He kept eating the heads off the snowmen with icing hats…he really liked the icing!  )

Skinny Gingerbread Cookies

  • Prep Time: 15
  • Cook Time: 12
  • Total Time: 27 minutes
  • Yield: 20 1x



For the Cookies

  • 3 cups oat flour
  • 1/2 cup Born Sweet Zing Baking Blend
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup unsulphured blackstrap molasses
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg

For the Icing


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl sift together your dry ingredients until mixed.
  3. In a medium bowl whisk together the molasses, coconut oil, and the egg until smooth.
  4. Pour your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and mix with a large spoon until you have a smooth dough.
  5. Lightly flour your countertop and roll out your dough until it’s 1/4 inch thick. Using your cookie cutters, carefully cut out your cookies, placing them on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Be sure to use all the dough, balling the outside scraps and then re-rolling it out.
  6. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until you see the edges starting to brown.
  7. Allow the cookies to cool for one hour before icing.

For the Icing

  1. While the cookies are cooling, place 1/2 cup Zing Baking Blend into your blender. Blend on high for 2-3 minutes to create a powder consistency.
  2. Once your baking blend is a powder transfer it to a medium bowl. Add the arrowroot powder and sift together.
  3. One tablespoon at a time add the milk and mix, until you have a smooth thick icing (you don’t want it to be too runny or it won’t keep it’s shape on the cookie).
  4. Transfer the icing to a piping bag or a plastic ziplock back with the corner cut off.
  5. Pipe the icing onto the cooled cookies and decorate them however you would like.
  6. Allow the icing to dry completely for at least 3 hours and enjoy!
