Gesonde peperkoekkoekies met roomkaasversiersel


Een naweek in Desember tydens die laerskool het 'n paar ma's van my broer se Cub Scout -troep al die seuns genooi om peperkoekhuise te bou en te versier. Hulle het ruimhartig aangebied dat broers en susters ook kan kom, so ma het ons albei gery vir 'n middag soet lekker.

Toe ons aankom, vind ons die kombuistafel van die gasheer, saam met twee opvoubare tafels in haar aangrensende sitkamer, bedek met plastiek tafeldoeke (vir maklike skoonmaak!), Baie papierborde, borde met vooraf gesnyde koekies in muur en dak vorms en baie eetbare versierings: gumdrops, M & ampMs, pretzels, lekkergoedblikkies, ronde pepermente, rooi drop, sjokoladeskyfies, neute, besprenkels ... Sy het aan alles gedink!


Toe al die seuns en broers en susters om die drie tafels gaan sit het, bied die volwassenes plastiekmesse aan om die ryp op die rande van die koekies te versprei om dit aan mekaar te plak, sowel as aan die bokant van die koekies. versier met al die lekkergoed. As een van die ouer kinders in die kamer het ek die maklikste tyd gehad om die ingemaakte ryp van my mes op die rande van die koekies sorgvuldig oor te dra, maar hoe lank ek dit ook al bymekaar gehou het, het hulle steeds uitmekaar gebars by die ryp "naat" toe Ek draai om om nog 'n koekie se rand te ryp.

Na tien of twintig minute se gesukkel, het almal uiteindelik besef dat die ryp in die winkel nie twee koekies bymekaar hou nie, laat staan ​​nog 'n hele peperkoekhuis bymekaar, sodat ons besluit het om eerder die bokante van die koekies te versier. 'N Uur of twee later het ons almal papierborde met koekies, bedek met ryp en lekkergoed, huis toe geneem - hoewel 'n paar koekies nooit heeltemal by die huis gekom het nie, maar eerder in ons mae beland het!


Ondanks die gevoel dat ek 'n paar keer deur pragtige peperkoekhuise op foto's versoek is, het ek nooit weer probeer om my eie te bou en te versier nie. Ek sou veel eerder die maklike uitweg wou neem ... Soos hiermee Gesonde peperkoekkoekies met roomkaasversiersel !

Hulle het dieselfde ikoniese geur as peperkoekhuise, die warm en knus en onweerstaanbare soet smaak, maar dit is baie sagter en kouer (ek onthou dat die peperkoekhuiskoeke nogal droog en oud is!). Nog beter, hierdie gesonde peperkoekkoekies bevat geen verfynde meel of suiker nie en slegs 81 kalorieë, insluitend die ryp!


Kom ons kyk hoe u hierdie gesonde peperkoekkoekies met roomkaasversiersel kan maak!

U begin met 'n kombinasie van wit volkoringmeel (soos hierdie!) en baie speserye: Gemmer (duidelik, ek is seker!), kaneel , neutmuskaat , en naeltjies . Ek hou van hoe warm en knus hulle proe!

En ja, wit volkoringmeel bestaan ​​eintlik! Dit is nie 'n kombinasie van wit (ook bekend as alledaagse) meel en gewone volkoringmeel nie. In plaas daarvan word wit volkoringmeel gemaak deur 'n spesiale soort sagte wit koring fyn te maal (vandaar die naam!). Hulle het dieselfde voordele vir die gesondheid, soos ekstra vesel, maar wit volkoringmeel het 'n ligter smaak en tekstuur ... wat die sagte en taai tekstuur van u gesonde peperkoekkoekies laat skyn!

Wenk: Ek het ook 'n glutenvrye opsie in die Notas-afdeling van die resep ingesluit!


In teenstelling met baie tradisionele resepte wat 'n vol botter of twee botter benodig, benodig u gesonde peperkoekkoekies slegs 2 eetlepels. Ja, dit is dit! Dan smelt u die botter eintlik om twee redes: (a) gesmelte botter skep 'n meer taai tekstuur en (b) dit is baie makliker as om te probeer onthou om dit vooraf te versag. Hoera!

Nou hier kom nog 'n klein nerdagtige deel van die resep ... U het eintlik twee versoeters nodig! Die eerste is melasse . Melasse, saam met gemmer, skep die ikoniese peperkoek smaak. Die gemmer voeg die warm, gesellige speserygeur by, terwyl die melasse die ryk, amper aardse ondertoon voeg. Ek doen nie beveel aan dat u dit vervang, want u koekies sal nie sonder ware peperkoek smaak sonder dit nie!

Wenk: Melasse is goedkoop en rakstabiel. Dit hou eeue lank, so dit is beslis die moeite werd om te koop! En u kan dit ook in al hierdie ander peperkoekresepte van my gebruik - saam met hierdie spesiale resep!


Die tweede versoeter is vloeibare stevia . Stevia is 'n plantaardige versoeter sonder kalorieë wat niks verfyn of kunsmatig bevat nie (dit is ook skoon eetvriendelik!). Dit is ook hoogs gekonsentreerd, wat die belangrikste nerdagtige deel van hierdie resep is!

As u 'n halwe melasse en 'n halwe gegranuleerde suiker (of klappersuiker of ahornstroop of heuning - een van hierdie opsies!) en taai ... Hulle het eintlik meer 'n koekagtige of gebraaide tekstuur van die ekstra vloeistof. Nie goed nie!

Maar omdat vloeibare stevia so gekonsentreerd is - jy benodig net 1 teelepel, wat die soetekwivalent van byna ½ koppie suiker byvoeg! - kry jy die regte sagte en taai koekie tekstuur en die korrekte soetheidsvlak. Wen-wen!

Wenk: Dit is die vloeibare stevia wat ek gebruik! Ek hou van sy geur en sien geen vreemde nasmaak nie, soos met ander stevia -produkte. Ek koop dit aanlyn hier, want dit is die beste prys wat ek gevind het, en u sal dit ook in al my resepte gebruik!


Nadat u u koekdeeg in u pan gesmeer het en in u oond gegooi het, is dit tyd om die gesonde roomkaas te laat ryp! Jy sal nodig hê Griekse jogurt , ligte roomkaas , kitspoedingmengsel , en 'n bietjie meer vloeibare stevia .

Ja, ek weet ... Instant poedingmengsel? Om te maak ryp? Ek is seker dit klink 'n bietjie mal, maar ek belowe dat dit werk! Dit is omdat die kitspoedingmengsel die Griekse jogurt verdik, sodat u gesonder roomkaasversiersel net so dik en romerig lyk as die tradisionele soort gemaak met roomkaas, botter en poedersuiker. So 'n goeie truuk, reg?

Wenk: As jy nie kitspoeding -mengsel het nie (of nie wil gebruik nie), gebruik dan hierdie roomkaas -resep van my!

Sodra u gesonde peperkoekkoekies by kamertemperatuur is en u gesonde roomkaas dik en romerig is, versprei dit bo -oor, sny die pan in vierkante en ...


Geniet dit! En as u u eie maak, onthou om 'n foto te maak en dit op Instagram te deel met #amyshealthybaking en die etiket @amyshealthybaking IN die foto self! (Dit waarborg dat ek u prentjie sal sien!). Ek sal graag u gesonde peperkoekkoekies wil sien!

Toe ons aankom, vind ons die kombuistafel van die gasheer, saam met twee opvoubare tafels in haar aangrensende sitkamer, bedek met plastiek tafeldoeke (vir maklike skoonmaak!), Baie papierborde, bordjies vooraf gesnyde koekies in muur en dak vorms en baie eetbare versierings: gumdrops, M & ampMs, pretzels, lekkergoedblikkies, ronde pepermente, rooi drop, sjokoladeskyfies, neute, besprenkels ... Sy het aan alles gedink!


Toe al die seuns en broers en susters om die drie tafels gaan sit het, bied die volwassenes plastiekmesse aan om die ryp op die rande van die koekies te versprei om dit aan mekaar te plak, sowel as oor die bokant van die koekies. versier met al die lekkergoed. As een van die ouer kinders in die kamer het ek die maklikste tyd gehad om die ingemaakte ryp van my mes op die rande van die koekies sorgvuldig oor te dra, maar hoe lank ek dit ook al bymekaar gehou het, het hulle steeds uitmekaar gebars by die ryp "naat" toe Ek draai om om nog 'n koekie se rand te ryp.

Na tien of twintig minute se gesukkel, het almal uiteindelik besef dat die ryp in die winkel nie twee koekies bymekaar hou nie, laat staan ​​nog 'n hele peperkoekhuis bymekaar, sodat ons besluit het om eerder die bokante van die koekies te versier. 'N Uur of twee later het ons almal papierborde met koekies, bedek met ryp en lekkergoed, huis toe geneem - hoewel 'n paar koekies nooit heeltemal by die huis gekom het nie, maar eerder in ons mae beland het!


Ondanks die gevoel dat ek 'n paar keer deur pragtige peperkoekhuise op foto's versoek is, het ek nooit weer probeer om my eie te bou en te versier nie. Ek sou veel eerder die maklike uitweg wou neem ... Soos hiermee Gesonde peperkoekkoekies met roomkaasversiersel !

Hulle het dieselfde ikoniese geur as peperkoekhuise, die warm en knus en onweerstaanbare soet speserye, maar dit is baie sagter en kouer (ek onthou dat die peperkoekkoekies nogal droog en verouderd is!). Nog beter, hierdie gesonde peperkoekkoekies bevat geen verfynde meel of suiker nie en slegs 81 kalorieë, insluitend die ryp!


Kom ons kyk hoe u hierdie gesonde peperkoekkoekies met roomkaasversiersel kan maak!

U begin met 'n kombinasie van wit volkoringmeel (soos hierdie!) en baie speserye: Gemmer (duidelik, ek is seker!), kaneel , neutmuskaat , en naeltjies . Ek hou van hoe warm en knus hulle proe!

En ja, wit volkoringmeel bestaan ​​eintlik! Dit is nie 'n kombinasie van wit (ook bekend as alledaagse) meel en gewone volkoringmeel nie. In plaas daarvan word wit volkoringmeel gemaak deur 'n spesiale soort sagte wit koring fyn te maal (vandaar die naam!), Maar gewone volkoringmeel kom uit 'n stewiger verskeidenheid rooi koring. Hulle het dieselfde voordele vir die gesondheid, soos ekstra vesel, maar wit volkoringmeel het 'n ligter smaak en tekstuur ... wat die sagte en taai tekstuur van u gesonde peperkoekkoekies laat skyn!

Wenk: Ek het ook 'n glutenvrye opsie in die Notas-afdeling van die resep ingesluit!


In teenstelling met baie tradisionele resepte wat 'n vol botter of twee botter benodig, benodig u gesonde peperkoekkoekies slegs 2 eetlepels. Ja, dit is dit! Dan smelt u die botter eintlik om twee redes: (a) gesmelte botter skep 'n meer taai tekstuur en (b) dit is baie makliker as om te probeer onthou om dit voor die tyd sag te maak. Hoera!

Nou hier kom nog 'n klein nerdagtige deel van die resep ... U het eintlik twee versoeters nodig! Die eerste is melasse . Melasse, saam met gemmer, skep die ikoniese peperkoek smaak. Die gemmer voeg die warm, gesellige speserygeur by, terwyl die melasse die ryk, amper aardse ondertoon voeg. Ek doen nie beveel aan dat u dit vervang, want u koekies sal nie sonder ware peperkoek smaak sonder dit nie!

Wenk: Melasse is goedkoop en rakstabiel. Dit bly eeue lank, so dit is beslis die moeite werd om te koop! En u kan dit ook in al hierdie ander peperkoekresepte van my gebruik - saam met hierdie spesiale resep!


Die tweede versoeter is vloeibare stevia . Stevia is a plant-based, no-calorie sweetener that contains nothing refined or artificial (aka it’s clean eating friendly!). It’s also highly concentrated, which is the key nerdy part to this recipe!

If you used half molasses and half granulated sugar (or coconut sugar or maple syrup or honey—any of those options!), that would actually add too much liquid volume to this recipe, and your healthy gingerbread cookie bars wouldn’t turn out soft and chewy… They’d actually have more of a cakey or bready texture from the extra liquid. Not good!

But because liquid stevia is so concentrated—you just need 1 teaspoon, which adds the sweetness equivalent of nearly ½ cup of sugar!—you get the correct soft and chewy cookie texture en the correct sweetness level. Win-win!

Tip: This is the liquid stevia that I use! I love its flavor and don’t notice any strange aftertaste, like with some other stevia products. I buy it online here because that’s the best price I’ve found, and you’ll use it in all of these recipes of mine, too!


After you’ve spread your cookie dough into your pan and slid that in your oven to bake, it’s time to make the healthy cream cheese frosting! You’ll need Griekse jogurt , light cream cheese , instant pudding mix , and a little more liquid stevia .

Yes, I know… Instant pudding mix? To make frosting? I’m sure it sounds a little crazy, but I promise it works! That’s because the instant pudding mix thickens the Greek yogurt, so your healthier cream cheese frosting turns out just as thick and creamy as the traditional kind made with cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar. Such a great trick, right?

Tip: If you don’t have instant pudding mix (or don’t want to use it), then use this cream cheese frosting recipe of mine instead!

Once your healthy gingerbread cookie bars are at room temperature and your healthy cream cheese frosting is thick and creamy, just spread it on top, slice the pan into squares, and…


Geniet dit! And when you make your own, remember to snap a picture and share it on Instagram using #amyshealthybaking and tagging @amyshealthybaking IN the photo itself! (That guarantees I’ll see your picture! . ) I’d love to see your healthy gingerbread cookie bars!


Healthy Gingerbread Cookie Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting


One December weekend during elementary school, a couple of the moms from my brother’s Cub Scout troop invited all of the boys over to build and decorate gingerbread houses. They generously offered that siblings could come as well, so Mom drove both of us over for an afternoon of sugary fun.

When we arrived, we found the host’s kitchen table, along with two folding tables in her adjacent living room, covered with plastic tablecloths (for easy clean-up!), plenty of paper plates, platters of pre-cut cookies in wall and roof shapes, and lots of edible decorations: gumdrops, M&Ms, pretzels, candy canes, round peppermints, red licorice, chocolate chips, nuts, sprinkles… She thought of everything!


Once all of the boys and siblings sat down around the three tables, the adults offered us plastic knives to spread the store-bought frosting on the edges of the cookies to “glue” them together, as well as across the tops of the cookies to decorate with all of the candy. As one of the older kids in the room, I had the easiest time carefully transferring the canned frosting from my knife onto the cookies’ edges, but no matter how long I held them together, they still broke apart at the frosting “seam” when I turned to frost another cookie’s edge.

After ten or twenty minutes of struggling, everyone finally realized that the store-bought frosting wasn’t going to hold two cookies together, let alone hold together an entire gingerbread house, so we just decided to decorate the tops of the cookies instead. An hour or two later, we all took home paper plates of cookies covered in frosting and candy—although a few cookies never quite made it home and ended up in our bellies instead!


Despite feeling tempted by beautiful gingerbread houses in photos a few times, I’ve never again tried to build and decorate my own. I’d much rather take the easy way out… Like with these Healthy Gingerbread Cookie Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting !

They have the same iconic flavor as gingerbread houses, that warm and cozy and irresistibly sweet spice taste, but these are much softer and chewier (I remember those gingerbread house cookies as being rather dry and stale!). Even better, these healthy gingerbread cookie bars contain no refined flour or sugar and only 81 calories, including the frosting!


Let’s go over how to make these healthy gingerbread cookie bars with cream cheese frosting!

You’ll start with a combination of wit volkoringmeel (like this!) and lots of spices: ginger (obvious, I’m sure!), kaneel , neutmuskaat , en naeltjies . I love how warm and cozy they taste!

And yes, white whole wheat flour actually exists! It’s not a combination of white (aka all-purpose) flour and regular whole wheat flour. Instead, white whole wheat flour is made by finely grinding a special type of soft white wheat (hence the name!), whereas regular whole wheat flour comes from a heartier variety of red wheat. They have the same health benefits, like extra fiber, but white whole wheat flour has a lighter taste and texture… Which lets the soft and chewy texture of your healthy gingerbread cookie bars truly shine!

Tip: I’ve also included a gluten-free option in the Notes section of the recipe!


Unlike many traditional recipes that require a full stick or two of butter, your healthy gingerbread cookie bars only need 2 tablespoons. Yes, that’s it! Then you’ll actually melt the butter for two reasons: (a) melted butter creates a more chewy texture and (b) it’s much easier than trying to remember to soften it ahead of time. Hoera!

Now here comes another little nerdy part of the recipe… You actually need two sweeteners! The first is molasses . Along with ginger, molasses is what creates the iconic gingerbread taste. The ginger adds that warm, cozy spice flavor, while the molasses adds the rich, almost earthy undertone. I do nie recommend substituting for it because your cookies won’t taste like true gingerbread without it!

Hint: Molasses is inexpensive and shelf-stable. It keeps for ages, so it’s definitely worth buying! And you can use it in all of these other gingerbread recipes of mine too—along with this special recipe!


The second sweetener is liquid stevia . Stevia is a plant-based, no-calorie sweetener that contains nothing refined or artificial (aka it’s clean eating friendly!). It’s also highly concentrated, which is the key nerdy part to this recipe!

You’ll start with a combination of wit volkoringmeel (like this!) and lots of spices: ginger (obvious, I’m sure!), kaneel , neutmuskaat , en naeltjies . I love how warm and cozy they taste!

And yes, white whole wheat flour actually exists! It’s not a combination of white (aka all-purpose) flour and regular whole wheat flour. Instead, white whole wheat flour is made by finely grinding a special type of soft white wheat (hence the name!), whereas regular whole wheat flour comes from a heartier variety of red wheat. They have the same health benefits, like extra fiber, but white whole wheat flour has a lighter taste and texture… Which lets the soft and chewy texture of your healthy gingerbread cookie bars truly shine!

Tip: I’ve also included a gluten-free option in the Notes section of the recipe!


Unlike many traditional recipes that require a full stick or two of butter, your healthy gingerbread cookie bars only need 2 tablespoons. Yes, that’s it! Then you’ll actually melt the butter for two reasons: (a) melted butter creates a more chewy texture and (b) it’s much easier than trying to remember to soften it ahead of time. Hoera!

Now here comes another little nerdy part of the recipe… You actually need two sweeteners! The first is molasses . Along with ginger, molasses is what creates the iconic gingerbread taste. The ginger adds that warm, cozy spice flavor, while the molasses adds the rich, almost earthy undertone. I do nie recommend substituting for it because your cookies won’t taste like true gingerbread without it!

Hint: Molasses is inexpensive and shelf-stable. It keeps for ages, so it’s definitely worth buying! And you can use it in all of these other gingerbread recipes of mine too—along with this special recipe!


The second sweetener is liquid stevia . Stevia is a plant-based, no-calorie sweetener that contains nothing refined or artificial (aka it’s clean eating friendly!). It’s also highly concentrated, which is the key nerdy part to this recipe!

If you used half molasses and half granulated sugar (or coconut sugar or maple syrup or honey—any of those options!), that would actually add too much liquid volume to this recipe, and your healthy gingerbread cookie bars wouldn’t turn out soft and chewy… They’d actually have more of a cakey or bready texture from the extra liquid. Not good!

But because liquid stevia is so concentrated—you just need 1 teaspoon, which adds the sweetness equivalent of nearly ½ cup of sugar!—you get the correct soft and chewy cookie texture en the correct sweetness level. Win-win!

Tip: This is the liquid stevia that I use! I love its flavor and don’t notice any strange aftertaste, like with some other stevia products. I buy it online here because that’s the best price I’ve found, and you’ll use it in all of these recipes of mine, too!


After you’ve spread your cookie dough into your pan and slid that in your oven to bake, it’s time to make the healthy cream cheese frosting! You’ll need Griekse jogurt , light cream cheese , instant pudding mix , and a little more liquid stevia .

Yes, I know… Instant pudding mix? To make frosting? I’m sure it sounds a little crazy, but I promise it works! That’s because the instant pudding mix thickens the Greek yogurt, so your healthier cream cheese frosting turns out just as thick and creamy as the traditional kind made with cream cheese, butter, and powdered sugar. Such a great trick, right?

Tip: If you don’t have instant pudding mix (or don’t want to use it), then use this cream cheese frosting recipe of mine instead!

Once your healthy gingerbread cookie bars are at room temperature and your healthy cream cheese frosting is thick and creamy, just spread it on top, slice the pan into squares, and…


Geniet dit! And when you make your own, remember to snap a picture and share it on Instagram using #amyshealthybaking and tagging @amyshealthybaking IN the photo itself! (That guarantees I’ll see your picture! . ) I’d love to see your healthy gingerbread cookie bars!
