Low Carb Gingerbread

GingerbreadI been thinking this Gingerbread recipe out for a while, finally decided to try it, and success is so sweet.  Over the last 4 years my tastes for sweet stuff has diminished in that it doesn’t take as much for something to taste sweet to me so if you think this need to be a bit sweeter add a little more www.justlikesugar.com.  A dollop of whipped cream and you’re good to go.  Wanna see what happened one time when I under-cooked a recipe of this gingerbread?  Not always, but most of the time, I can make lemonade out of lemons.  I ended up with what are now Gingerbread Waffles with a fabulous gingerbread pudding to boot which only goes to show, don’t be afraid of failure in the kitchen because there can often times be success right around the corner.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

    i do not have powdered ginger and want to sue crushed ginger – what would the correct substitution amount be?

    • I don’t know but it would be a lot. Powdered ginger is concentrated and best used in baked goods vs fresh ginger more in savory dishes. I tend to use powder because of its convenience.
