2 Quick Keto Baking Tips
There’s nothing that I love more than spending an afternoon in the kitchen baking up some yummy keto treats. With that being said, here are a couple of my top keto specific baking tips; they’ll be particularly useful if you’re making this ginger snap cookie recipe for the very first time.
- Use almond flour to add a hint of nutty flavor to your recipes. Not only is almond flour a fantastic low carb substitute to the traditionally used refined all-purpose flour, but it’s also great for adding a delicious hint of nutty flavor to your cookies, cakes, and more. And the best part? It also just so happens to be an amazing source of heart healthy dietary fats as well.
- Spice it up. I always make sure that I keep a variety of savory spices stocked up in my kitchen; for both keto baked goods and a variety of other tasty low carb recipes. This cookie recipe makes excellent use of ground ginger, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg to make low carb cookies that offer up a delightfully authentic ginger snap taste.
How to Store Ginger Snap Cookies
The best way to store your keto ginger snap cookies is to keep them sealed up tightly inside of an airtight container. You don’t need to keep them in the fridge; they’ll be better off if stored at room temperature.
These ginger snap cookies will keep for up to 7 days as long as they’re properly stored. Alternatively, you can freeze them for up to one month; just make sure that you allow them to cool completely before transferring them into your freezer.
