We love these Christmas treats from our friends at The Healthy Chef; gluten free and fun for the kids.  This recipe makes about 10 gingerbread men.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
  • 280 g (2 ¾ cups) almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon gluten free baking powder
  • 4 (60 g) fresh soft pitted dates or prunes
  • 50 ml extra virgin olive oil, macadamia oil or coconut oil
  • 40 g raw honey, maple syrup, molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean extract
  • 1 egg white
Method:
  • Combine almond meal, baking powder, dates and spices in a food processor.
  • Process until combined and mix is crumbly.
  • Add olive oil, honey (+molasses if using), vanilla + egg white.
  • Process again until a soft dough forms.
  • Remove the dough and flatten down slightly between 2 pieces of  grease-proof paper (baking paper) – about 3 mm thick.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the dough to firm up. If in a hurry, place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  • Cut out into shapes with a gingerbread cutter and place cookies onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Bake at 150 C for 30 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove from the oven and cool. Decorate as you like… I iced mine with melted white chocolate.
