There are some flavors to keep up with the holiday season, and gingerbread is one of them.
And gingerbread is one of those flavors that brings back memories of the winter holidays when I was growing up.
So, of course, I’m going to create a Keto version of one of my favorite childhood treats! And I’m happy to report that it tastes just as good (if not better) than the gingerbread loaves my mother used to make.
Even better, each thick slice contains 3 grams of net carbs, which means you can fully enjoy the holidays without the guilt.
Baking Recipe Tips and Suggestions
It is very easy to make this Keto frozen gingerbread loaf. However, if you are new to keto baking, it can seem a little intimidating, and I understand that!
So, here are some baking tips to make sure your ginger loaf comes out perfectly.
Be sure to sift the coconut flour before measuring. Coconut flour tends to form hard lumps that you don’t want in baked goods.
For the most accurate measurements, be sure to weigh the almond flour and coconut flour with a food scale rather than using measuring cups.
However, if you don’t have a food scale, use a spoon to put the flour into the measuring cup.
Make sure the ghee and eggs are at room temperature before using them. Usually, I take both out of the fridge for about an hour before I start baking to allow them to reach room temperature.
And for a dairy-free loaf, you can use coconut oil instead of ghee. I would suggest using refined coconut oil instead of unrefined (also known as virgin) coconut oil as it has a milder taste.
After the loaf is baked, be sure to let it cool completely in the pan before slicing it. If you cut the loaf while it’s still warm, it will likely be soft.
And you can definitely skip the toppings for a less sweet loaf, but it really makes for a decadent candy loaf.
