Gingersnap cookies infused with lemon and mint

FODMAP Cookies - gingersnap cookies infused with lemon and mint on a floral plate

My all time favorite hot drink is so simple and gentle on the stomach: hot water, lemon, ginger and fresh mint.  The other day, I was sipping on this relaxing drink and found myself thinking that these same flavors would perfect in a cookie.  A lot of times with my tummy issues, I want a comforting carbohydrate like toast, rice, pasta and yes, even a cookie!  These gingersnap cookies are not only delicious but make for awesome FODMAP cookies any day of the week!

I was curious to learn more about the benefits of lemon and ginger as I’ve always been a huge advocate to adding to drinks.

Some of my favorite benefits are:

Most obviously, ginger is effective with soothing nausea & eliminating vomiting.

Ginger also helps eliminate bacterial pathogens that attack the stomach

Lemon helps reduce indigestion & heartburn

Improving concentration and cognition

Soothing the nervous system & improving mood

Improves skin health

Ginger helps stimulate the metabolism & help reduce feelings of hunger 

Help boost immune system
