My absolute favourite Christmas cookie has always been gingerbread cookies! After many experimental batches, I’ve finally come up with a recipe that tastes like the ones my grandmother makes! These are so delicious! These cookies are gluten free, dairy free and sugar free! I hope these will help you stay away from the usual Christmas treats without feeling like you are missing out! Enjoy!
1 Cup millet flour (I buy millet at bulk barn and then grind it into flour in my vitamix blender)
1 Cup Gluten free flour of your choice (you can also use whole grain or whole wheat flour)
1/4 Cup molasses
1 Tsp baking powder
1/2 Cup date butter (you can find my recipe for this by typing it in the search bar at the top of the page)
1 Tbsp ginger
1 Tsp cinnamon
1 Tsp nutmeg
1 Tsp ground cloves
1 Tsp vanilla
1 Egg (beaten)
Pre-heat oven to 350F.
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. If the dough seems too sticky, add a little more flour one TBSP at a time until it is easy to handle. Flour your counter top and roll out dough. Cut out with cookie cutters and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes (depending on the size of your cookies)
Tip: I use the tiny 2 inch cookie cutters. Because these cookies are packed with millet, whole grains and dates, they are really filling! A “normal” size cookie could be too much.
