Gingerbread bars covered in cream cheese frosting and JEM Organics Nut Butter

Chewy Cinnamon Maca Gingerbread Bars

We all love a classic gingerbread cookie for Christmas, but you will be drooling when you try our Cinnamon Maca-inspired gingerbread. Our gingerbread creation is ooey-gooey, moist, and extra soft, with a hint of sweetness from the cream cheese frosting. And the best part about these, they are bars and super easy to make for family and friends!
