Gingerbread Men

This is our version of WFPB Gingerbread Men. No eggs, no fat, no refined sugar... and so delicious. Give them a try and let us know what you think. (This is one recipe that is not SOS free as we use molasses and maple syrup in to give it a gingerbread taste.)

Gingerbread Men (Or Ginger Cookies)

  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax mixed in 2 1/2 tablespoons filtered water. Set aside).
  • 3 cups flour (homemade: 3 cups rolled oats blended on high 10 to 15 seconds)
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened  apple sauce
  • ¼ cup almond milk
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon stevia
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350º F.
Make the flax egg and set aside.
Add all dry ingredients to medium bowl and mix well.
Add wet ingredients including the flax egg to a small bowl and mix well.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix well.
Roll out to 1/4" thick between two pieces of parchment paper. Remove the top sheet of paper and cut with a Gingerbread Man cookie cutter.
If the dough sticks to the paper, dust it with more flour and reduce the almond milk in the recipe to 2 tablespoons next time.
Bake 15-20 minutes. Less time provides softer cookies and more time creates crisper cookies.
