Gingerbread Cookies

Sep 13, 2016 by Earth Shift
Gingerbread is one of our holiday favorites and this recipe has our own little Earth Shift touch. We took the traditional recipe, swapped out butter and processed sugar for coconut oil, palm sugar and coconut syrup. The result? An authentic, traditional and awesome gingerbread cookie (with just the right amount of spicy ginger snap!)
