Collagen Gingerbread Cookies

Hey there, my festive friends! It's officially December, and you know what that means – it's time to get into the holiday spirit with some delicious treats. Today, I've got a special recipe for you: Collagen Almond Flour Gingerbread Cookies. Not only are these cookies a taste of holiday nostalgia, but they also pack a nutritious punch with the addition of collagen protein powder.

Let's dive right into it, shall we? Here's what you'll need:


For the Cookies:

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 scoop of The Roasted Purpose Gourmet Protein Powder -Vanilla Flavor 
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or butter
  • 1/4 cup monk fruit sweetener (granulated)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Icing (optional):

  • 1/2 cup powdered monk fruit sweetener
  • 1-2 tbsp milk of your choice
  • Food coloring (optional)


  1. Preheat Your Oven: First things first, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the almond flour, collagen protein powder, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, baking soda, and salt. Set this dry mixture aside.

  3. Combine Wet Ingredients: In a separate mixing bowl, beat the melted coconut oil or butter, monk fruit sweetener, egg, and vanilla extract until well combined.

  4. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the dry ingredient mixture into the wet ingredients and stir until a cookie dough forms. If the dough seems too sticky, you can chill it in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to make it easier to work with.

  5. Shape the Cookies: Roll the dough into small balls (about 1 inch in diameter) and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Use your fingers or the back of a fork to gently flatten each cookie.

  6. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges of the cookies turn golden brown. Be careful not to overbake, as almond flour cookies can become dry if cooked for too long.

  7. Cool: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  8. Prepare Icing (optional): If you'd like to add icing, mix powdered monk fruit sweetener and milk in a small bowl until you achieve your desired consistency. You can also add food coloring for a festive touch.

  9. Decorate: Once the cookies are completely cooled, drizzle or spread the icing over the cookies as desired. Allow the icing to set before serving.

Now, isn't that just the perfect way to kick off the holiday season? These Collagen Almond Flour Gingerbread Cookies are not only scrumptious but also give your body that extra boost of collagen protein. Plus, they're low in sugar thanks to monk fruit sweetener!
