Gingerbread cookies(gluten free, vegan)

Who wouldn’t love gingerbread cookies? My kids are crazy about them. (Ok.. I like them too :D)

The stores are starting the Christmas hype earlier each year, and my kids tend to get into the Christmas spirits already in November. They keep asking me if I could buy gingerbread cookies from the store whenever we’re shopping together, so I felt pretty much compelled to make up my own recipe for them.

First, I made a raw cookie version that didn’t turn out too well, but this one was a hit! My oldest daughter even stated that these cookies are the best she’s ever had! 🙂 That was the best reward. I liked them a lot too, and I will definitely use this recipe again.

I wanted to create a healthy, easy gingerbread cookie recipe for busy people. So this one is pretty simple. But good! 🙂 If you still want to add more sweetness(I don’t think it needs any), you can add a few dates in it.

These cookies are gluten-free, vegan and refined sugar-free.

If you know anyone who’s looking for a healthy and easy gingerbread cookie recipe, please share this recipe forward. You are doing your children/or yourself a big favour by cutting down on sugar in your diet and steering away from all the additives – preservatives, flavorings, colors and other ingredients that the store-bought cookies often contain.
