Spiced Gingerbread Cookies

Spiced Ginger cookies are linked in my mind with Christmas and holidays, especially with my European background. These days I struggle to find a good Gluten free gingerbread and add in sugar restrictions- there’s not much around. Fortunately these only take around 20 minutes to whip up. And here is a hot tip….. They taste as good as a raw cookie so don’t feel that you need to cook them if you’re in a hurry!

 

  • 1 Tbsp. almond butter
  • 1.5 cups almond meal
  • 3 Tbsp. Rice Malt Syrup
  • ¼ tsp ground Vanilla Beans (you can use vanilla paste or essence)
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5tsp ginger powder
  • 2 fresh dates
  • Whole walnuts to garnish

Method:

  1. Place all the ingredients into the blender with the exception of the walnuts.
  2. Blend till completely combined
  3. Turn out and roll into balls, flatten they should be a little bigger than a 50 cent piece, press a walnut on each cookie.
  4. Place on baking paper
  5. Bake 160 degrees for 15 minutes
  6. Cool before eating
