Wintery Gingerbread Men!

How could you resist these smiling faces?! A great way to spend time with your favourite people would be making these friendly chaps…and then devouring with a cuppa or a hot choc…

Serves: 16-18 mini and small/medium (as pictured) OR 10-12 small/medium.


1 cup almond flour/ground almonds

1/4 cup + 1 tbsp coconut flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1.5 tsp ginger

Pinch salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 cup sticky liquid sweetener (we used golden syrup but could use honey/maple syrup/rice malt/agave etc)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract/essence

2 tsp coconut oil (melted)

1 egg


  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
  • In a seperate bowl whisk together the wet ingredients with a fork.
  • Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients to form a dough (it will be a bit sticky).
  • Refridgerate the dough for 2 hours.
  • On a wooden board/non-stick sheet, roll the dough out to roughly 0.5cm thick. If it starts to stick, sprinkle a bit of coconut flour on the surface/rolling pin.
  • Using cutters, cut out the gingerbread men shapes and transfer to a lined baking tray.
  • Collect up the extra bits, roll into a ball and re-roll out. Repeat until you’ve used all the dough.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown on top.
  • Once cooled, decorate however you like (we just used some melted dark chocolate! SImple!).
