Gluten-free Gingerbread Men

Recipes, Uncategorized | December 5, 2016 | By

While looking for a Gingerbread Men recipe (the holidays aren’t complete without gingerbread!), I discovered this recipe from Frontier, Natural Products Co-op and I was so excited to find that it already used honey and little sugar. So, I only had to make a few tweaks to the recipe to make it both gluten-free and completely unrefined. Note: It is essential to use black strap molasses for strong gingerbread flavour, rather than regular molasses.

  8. 2 tsp ginger powder
  9. 1 tsp baking soda
  10. 1/2 nutmeg
  11. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  12. 1/2 tsp allspice
  13. 1/4 tsp salt
  14. 1/8 tsp cloves
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. Cream together butter, sugar, molasses, and honey.
  3. Beat in egg and pure vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
  5. Add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet mixture and mix well.
  6. Make sure your surface is well floured, before rolling out your dough to 1/4 inch thickness.
  7. Cut out your gingerbread men, or whatever shapes of your choice.
  8. Place on either non-stick cookie sheets, or ones lined with parchment paper.
  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until browned.
  10. Let cool before decorating.
  1. You can substitute Bob’s Red Mill All Purpose Flour BUT, you must add the necessary amount of xanthan gum to the flour itself before adding it to the recipe.
