The Ultimate Soft + Chewy Healthy Gingerbread Cookies! (V, GF, RSF)

Oh Em Geeeeee these are INSANELY GOOD!

Honestly I was looking for festive treat that I could recreate for the holiday season, but everything is so rich and sweet!! (I have never been a fan of plum pudding, even though every year I pretend to be because my Nannie has spent weeks preparing it lol!)

BUT something I have ALWAYS loved is gingerbread!! However unfortunately for me traditionally made gingerbread is full of ingredients that my hormones are not overly keen on, so I did what I always do and made HEALTHY and hormone friendly version of it!!... and honestly its AMAZING.

Not to mention its vegan, gluten free, low carb, refined sugar free, paleo, grain free AND full of hormone loving ingredients like flaxseed, coconut flour, molasses, cinnamon, ginger and dark chocolate! Yasssss!

ANYWAY its the perfect healthy christmas treat, so less talking, more baking

    Pregnant in a month of using Cysterhood Tea

    I purchased this tea as I needed some help regulating hormones to aid in TTC.

    I had a miscarriage at the beginning of the year and felt that my hormones were out of whack.

    Came across PCOS to wellness tea and thought I'd give it a go - BANG! Pregnant!

    Very very happy with my purchase and I'll be heading to buy the pregnancy loose leaf tea

    I feel like me again!

    One month into using cysterhood and zenhood and I am beginning to feel myself again! My bloating has significantly decreased and my cravings have almost been eliminated. I also had a regular cycle this month!

    Tastes Great!

    The tea tastes great! Only just started drinking today so fingers crossed this helps my PCOS!

    Amazing!!

    Absolutely love drinking this before bed! Helps me relax and wind down! It always take me about an hour or so of tossing and turning till I fall asleep but I’ve found that this helps me fall asleep faster. Bought some for my mother and mother in law also and they love it too.

    Cysterhood has really helped my sister!

    My sister has suffered from PCOS for years. Last year she told me that one of her New Year's resolutions was to really focus on healing from PCOS. I searched the internet far and wide for something to help her and found Cysterhood. My sister was never a tea drinker, but she absolutely loves this blend and drinks it twice a day. She has told me numerous times how much it is helping her. I'm back to order more!
