  1. So far this is the only fructose free recipe my 5 year old has liked. He is a gingernut freak! So Its definitely a compliment. Going to try some with just cinnamon for something a bit different. Actually my 2 year old likes them too, she usually won’t eat the store bought ones so this is a great recipe and its super easy to make as well!
