Clean Gingerbread Christmas Cookies

Image

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!

Ingredients:

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)

Directions:

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.
