7 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS IMMUNITY: SUGAR-FREE GINGERBREAD MEN

by Dara Winters

Now onto dessert! Everyone loves a good gingerbread biscuit, but since sugar's not great for the immune system, we've given this quintessential Christmas treat an immune-friendly upgrade by swapping out the sugar for sweetener. 

 

Recipe for Sugar-Free Gingerbread Men

Makes 30

Ingredients:

  • 110g butter, softened
  • 4 tbsp sweetener of choice or more, to your taste
  • 1 egg
  • 200g almond flour
  • 4 tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1&2 tsp ground cloves

 

Instructions:

  1. Mix the butter and sweetener together until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the egg and mix.
  3. Add all the other dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  4. Adjust the dough with extra almond flour or water until the dough is the right consistency to be rolled out.
  5. Roll between two sheets of baking parchment, cut out various shapes using cookie cutters and place on a lined baking tray.
  6. Bake at 180C/350F for 10-12 minutes or until cooked (cooking time will depend on how crunchy you would like your gingerbread!). Once cooked, you may want to turn them upside down and bake for a further minute to ensure they are crisp on both sides. 

 

Did you know:

  • Gingerbread was another thing the Ancient Egyptians were a fan of! The first record of gingerbread comes from around 1500 B.C., where honey cakes, flavoured with ginger, were placed in pharaohs’ tombs.
