Add almond flour, xanthan gum, salt, baking soda, and spices to a medium bowl. Whisk until thoroughly combined and set aside.
Cream butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer, 1-2 minutes. Add in sweetener and molasses (optional), and continue to cream until light and fluffy (8-10 minutes).
Add in egg, mixing until just incorporated. The mixture will appear slightly 'broken' (i.e. not thoroughly smooth).
With your mixer on low, add in half of your flour mixture- mixing until just incorporated. Mix in the rest. Wrap cookie dough with cling film (saran wrap) and refrigerate overnight (much preferred). But if in a pickle, 3 hours will do.
Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper or a baking mat.
Roll out the dough between two pieces of parchment paper and cut out the shapes. Note that the thickness will determine much of the texture: thinner cookies will be much crispier, while a thick dough (particularly if under-baked) will yield a softer one. Place shaped cookies on the prepared baking tray and place in the freezer for 10 minutes prior to baking.
Bake for 10-20 minutes, until fully golden. Note that I found baking time varies a lot here, depending on the thickness and size of the cookies. So just keep an eye out for them, and note that if you like them crisp you'll want to push the baking time as much as possible (until deep golden).
Allow cooling for ten minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Allow cooling completely, as they'll continue to crunch up (can take a few hours). Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
Note that these keto gingerbread cookies are even better the next day after the spices have had some time to mingle. And also (for some inexplicable reason), the sweetness also intensifies the day after.

When I first heard about the keto diet there was so much information thrown my way that I felt really overwhelmed. All I wanted to know was the basics. Where do I begin? What do I eat? That is why today I put together a few basics to help you get started on your ketogenic journey. The first thing I learned about the keto diet was that I was going to want to keep my carbs between 20-25 net carbs a day. What's a net carb? That is when you take your carbs and subtract the fiber and sugar alcohols to get your net.
I also learned that I wanted to keep my diet around 70% fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbs. I use the My Fitness Pal app to help me keep track of this! Most of your carbs on this diet should be coming from green veggies such as spinach, kale, and collard greens.
Foods to avoid on the keto diet: -breads -corn -oats -oatmeal -honey -syrup -potatoes -wheat -fruit Let's talk about fruit...yes it is healthy but it is really high in natural sugars and carbs. If you need some fruit the best …
