Holiday Ginger Snaps (low FODMAP & gluten free)

Jump to recipe

Hey friends!

The holiday baking season is here! Yahoooooooooooo!

I am a big fan of ginger snaps so I tried my hand at a low FODMAP and gluten free version!

First try, was a major fail. The cookies were all flat and the cookie tray looked like it had one massive cookie on it! Oops!

But, I tried again! And the second time was a charm!

These frosted gingersnaps are super yummy and easy to whip up.  As an added bonus, the dough freezes well.  I made one sheet of cookies and froze the rest of the dough for later.

What’s your favorite holiday cookie?

Here’s the recipe!…And cheers to a happy cookie season for you and your sensitive belly.

      My daughter recently had to move to a low FODMAP & gluten free diet. She sent me this recipe to make ginger snaps for her as I always make them for Christmas. I followed your recipe exactly, even down to Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 GF baking flour. Unfortunately, I found the dough to be VERY sticky and challenging to roll into balls. The cookies went very flat and I am not sure they are going to be fit to eat. I am wondering if any of the measurements are incorrect. Is more than 1 cup of flour required?

        Sorry you had a problem with the cookies. A few things to troubleshoot here: Did you use a dry measuring cup to measure the flour? And did you remember to use the buckwheat flour too? The dough should have been slightly sticky but you should have been able to roll into a small ball. If you made the cookies into large balls they may have flattened out a bit too much too. This is hot a hard cookie–like a traditional store bought ginger snap–but rather a slightly hard on the edge with a soft center cookie.

    I just wanted to say that I made these last weekend and they were a huge success. I’ll probably be making more again before the holidays are done! I used the Bob’s 1 to 1 and also used the Buckwheat flour. The dough was sticky, but not so much so that I couldn’t roll it into small balls. I dipped mine in sugar, but did not use frosting. I think frosting would have made them “too sweet” for my taste. I really liked the soft center.
