I created this healthy gingerbread cookie to accommodate most diets. It is grain free, paleo, dairy free, egg free and nut free. This cookie is the powerhouse of cookies. Although I have named it a cookie, it should be labeled healthy energy snack. This scrumptious cookie is made with pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are well known for their health benefits such as omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, fiber, zinc and protein

Include this healthy chewy gingerbread cookie in your children’s lunch box or enjoy as energy snack. Next time you crave sweets indulge in our healthy gluten free gingerbread cookie without the guilt
