gingerbread cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. flaxseed meal
  • 3 tbsp. filtered water
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup raw, unsweetened almond butter
  • 3 tbsp. raw coconut nectar
  • ¼ cup vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups gluten-free baking flour (we like Bob’s Red Mill)

What You’ll Need

Rolling Pin
Gingerbread cookie cutters

Directions

  • Mix flax meal with water and let rest for 5 minutes. This mixture will serve as our egg substitute.
  • Mix all ingredients together except the flour for 3 minutes on high. Add flour and stir with a spoon or mix with your hands. If mix is too dry, add 1 tsp. of water at a time until dough like consistency.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.
  • Remove the dough and preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Cover a flat surface or cutting board and the rolling pin with gluten-free flour to prevent sticking.
  • Roll the dough out to a thin consistency (the cookies will not rise very much). Use the cookie cutters to create the shape of your gingerbread men.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with coconut oil or other cooking spray.
  • Space the cookies 1 ½ inch away from each other and bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly crisp. Let the cookies cool and use coconut whipped cream as frosting. (See our Coconut Whipped Cream recipe HERE.)
