What do you get when your gingersnaps turn into muffin tops? You get creative and call them "Love Handles" 😍💕Typically gingerbread and gingersnap cookies are made with molasses, but we swapped out the old with the new (aka our NEW Medjool date syrup). The spices really compliment the date syrup, giving you the delicious flavor of a classic gingersnap with a boost of nutrients. Plus, you won't find yourself crashing from a sugar high since medjool dates are a low glycemic sweetener, giving you a sustainable energy to keep you going through all the holiday madness! 
 
If you make this new and improved classic cookie, be sure to tag us on Instagram and Pinterest so we can see all your date-able recreations! And feel free to leave a comment below!
