Recipe: Homemade Gingerbread

Dessert Recipes



Gingerbread is such a classic holiday flavor and it makes the house smell amazing! I love this time of year and this recipe swaps in a few healthy ingredients so you can still indulge in the best holiday treats with your family! This Homemade Gingerbread Recipe has the same deeply rich flavor as traditional gingerbread laden with eggs and butter and sugar. Yet this is probably the healthiest gingerbread recipe you’ll ever eat!
