I loved making gingerbread men (or women) when I was young! It was more of an experience rolling out the dough, using the cookie cutters and of course decorating with icing and all the different kinds of candies!
Here I have created a gluten free and dairy free version for those who are celiac or an allergy!
Gluten Free Gingerbread Men and Women
Yields 12-16 cookies | Prep time: 10 minutes | Bake time: 10 minutes
⦁ 1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour blend
⦁ 1/2 cup oat flour (certified gluten-free)
⦁ 1 teaspoon baking soda
⦁ 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
⦁ 1 teaspoon cinnamon
⦁ 1 teaspoon ginger
⦁ 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
⦁ 1/4 teaspoon cloves
⦁ 1/4 teaspoon salt
⦁ 1 egg
⦁ 1/2 cup coconut sugar
⦁ 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
⦁ 2 tablespoons molasses
1. Set oven to 350F. Mix egg, coconut sugar, coconut oil and molasses in a bowl.
2. Add remaining ingredients and mix until a dough ball forms.
3. Sprinkle flour on the counter so the dough won’t stick. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough until 1/4 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out the gingerbread and place on a cookie sheet.
4. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Smaller cookies will take 8 minutes, larger will take 10 minutes, watch so they do not burn.
