I’m the first to question the ‘best coffee in town’ sign, and I know I use ‘best’, ‘most delicious’ & ‘amazing’ pretty liberally on TravelingFig, but this gluten free ginger snap cookie crust is orgasmic. And there’s really no other way to put it.

Flavorful and crunchy, cinnamon and ginger spiced yet sweet.  This crust will hold up perfectly, look beautiful and taste heavenly.  Honestly, no one will ever even know it’s healthy and gluten free!  And my God is this recipe easy!!

1. Pulse almonds  and gingersnap cookies in a food processor until finely chopped.  Add honey and earth balance spread, pulse until combined. Mixture should be gooey, not crumbly.
