The Myers Way® Gingerbread Men

Gingerbread MenThis recipe is a sneak peek from my AIP & Paleo Holiday Recipes eBook.

There’s nothing that says “the holidays are here!” quite like Gingerbread Men. Normally though, these cute little treats are full of refined flour and sugar, butter, and eggs.

My Gingerbread Men are made with all 100% autoimmune-friendly ingredients and natural, nutrient-rich sweeteners. You can have a lot of fun baking these traditional holiday cookies with your kids or grandkids. They also make a great gift!

Happy holidays!
