Vegan, Oil Free, Low Fat & Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies

Inspired by Veggieful‘s recipe, I wanted to make a healthier & lower fat version! 20151219_114121.jpg

2+1/4 Cups teff flour (or gluten free flour of choice, but teff or buckwheat is best!)

1 tbsp ground ginger

1tsp ground cinnamon

3/4 cup coconut sugar

1/2 tsp bicarb soda

3/4 cup apple sauce

1/4 cup agave nectar or maple syrup

 

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees, fanforced.
  • Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl and combine.
  • Add in all the wet ingredients and combine together with your hands to form a ball.
  • Sprinkle some flour onto your workspace/bench and put the dough ball in the middle.
  • Roll out your dough with a rolling pin & cut out shapes with a cookie cutter of your choice.
  • Place the cookies onto a baking try lined with baking paper and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool on a baking rack before icing if you wish. I enjoyed mine plain & they were delicious!
makes 23 cookies, but of course this depends on your cookie cutter 🙂
