Calories in Gingersnap Cookies - About 120 Calories for Six Cookies

There's nothing quite like the smell of tasty gingerbread hot from the oven.

Topped with a little whipped fluff - and the Ginger Lover is in paradise!

Lucky for ginger lovers, gingersnap cookies make a calorie-wise alternative to gingerbread topped with heavy whipped cream.  

They tend to be very low in fat, which in turn translates to those fewer calories.  

About six typical gingersnaps found in the snack section of your favorite market in the familiar brown-bag contain about 120 calories.

Of course, they are delicious but the other great thing about gingersnaps is that they can be enjoyed in small bites.  

They also stand up very well to dunking at coffee time.
