‘I can’t believe they’re AIP-friendly’ Chewy Gingerbread Men

I’m currently on the Autoimmune Protocol, a nutrient-rich elimination diet that removes foods that irritate the gut, cause gut imbalance and activate the immune system. You can read more about the protocol and why I’m doing this here.

I had all these plans for the blog this week. Ideas for posts kept popping into my head at the most unlikely of times. And, I’m finally back – firing on all cylinders – in the kitchen again after the big move into the smaller wee place. So, there really has been no excuse for not being more organised. I’m not even really sure what happened.  So today, I start with an apology…

Sorry! I don’t know where the week went.

My little sister is undergoing a routine medical procedure today. It involves fasting because she’s having a general anaesthetic. She’s just back from holidaying overseas and has jumped straight into the autoimmune protocol. So, I figured some chicken soup was in order. And then, I thought about the awful gluten-filled biscuits and sweet, milky cups of tea they give you when you’re just out of your anaesthetic – Ugh! – and I just had to make these wee gingerbread beauties.

A much better alternative to the hospital-provided snack-age AND AIP-friendly, to boot!

I can’t take any credit for this recipe. That must all go to the very talented Tyler over at The Primitive Homemaker. You can find the recipe for these lovely wee Chewy Ginger Thin Cookies here. They are a doddle to make, contain only four ingredients, and are a scrummy treat with just the right about of crunch, ginger and sweetness.

Thanks Tyler!

Funny, I just made these yesterday, courtesy also of The Primitive Homemaker!
Delicious…except I did my own lazy take on it, rolling the dough into a log, chilling, and then slicing thinly. Love the spicy ginger kick

Small world, Cindy!

I reckon your way sounds far more practical than my fiddly wee gingerbread men (but I was channelling my inner child yesterday!)

Amazingly good considering they’re nut-, dairy-, gluten-, and egg-free!

Oh but the gingerbread men are so cute! I too can’t believe they’re AIP – I’m totally wrapped I can have a yummylicious treat like this. And most amazing of all, my fussy daughter loved them too

Thanks for all your kind words, and for sharing this recipe. I am delighted that you all like the cookies! They’re definitely a staple around my house- mostly because they’re so simple.

Tyler – my sister scoffed these down like there was no tomorrow. And, her partner was visibly disappointed there were none left for him when he came to collect her that afternoon!

So good and so simple. Cheeers Possum!

A great healthy way to get our ginger fix! Thanks for sharing.

DW – my sister ate almost the whole batch. They are GOOD!
