Gingerbread – Vegan and gluten free!

Classic gingerbread biscuit but with a wholefoods twist. (pssst they are also gluten free!)

I eat so many of these over gingerbread biscuits Christmas One batch just never seems to last long enough. Its become the perfect Christmas tradition spending afternoons cutting out gingerbread cookies with my daughters, excitedly awaiting the smell wafting through the house.

Sadly I haven’t tried building with this gingerbread and I am not sure they are hard enough. They are slightly softer than traditional gingerbread, but personally, I find that makes them much more moorish.

If you fancy adding something a bit extra to this recipe I highly recommend dipping the biscuits in dark chocolate! It gives them that extra decadent touch. Ofcourse as always I recommend you stick to a good quality dark chocolate with a high level of cocoa solids. This will allow you to make the most of the amazing nutritional benefits of chocolate.

Although if you are not into the ginger and chocolate combo, adding in a few tablespoons of raisins gives and extra level of depth and still in keeping with the festive feels.
