Gingerbread Cookies

Prep Time: 30mins | Cook Time: 15-30mins | Makes: 10

 I like my gingerbread cookies to have a bit of crunch to them! If you’d like chewy cookies, please add some liquid sweetener, sub some of the coconut sugar with dates or a little apple puree and keep a close eye on these tasty little suckers to make sure they don’t dry out. 

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup sorghum flour

1/2 cup oat flour

1/2 cup almond flour (or 1/4 cassava root and 1/4 tigernut for nut free)

1/3 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup coconut sugar

2 eggs

2-3 tbsp grated ginger or a few drops liquid ginger

pinch of salt

raw vanilla, to taste as tolerated

PREPARATION

Pre-heat your oven to 180C/350F.

In a medium bowl mix the flours, oil, vanilla, ginger, pinch of salt eggs and ginger.

Place in the fridge for 10-20 minutes, or till firm, so it’s easy to roll out later. Take out of the fridge. Lightly dust your work surface with some sorghum flour (or tolerated flour).

Take your dough and knead for a bit till workable. But make sure not to touch it too much or it’ll become unmanageable.

Roll it out quickly and then use a cookie cutter to work your way through. I made mine about half an inch thick. Lay down some baking paper onto a tray and carefully place the cookies on it.

Bake at 180C/350F for about 20-30 minutes, till golden. Serve with eggnog.

BENEFITS

Antihistamine: ginger.

Anti-inflammatory: vanilla, dates, sorghum, almonds,

1/2 cup sorghum flour (paleo, medium oxalate)

1/2 cup coconut sugar

fresh raw vanilla, to taste (as tolerated)

Streusel:

1 cup almond flour (or sorghum flour, oat flour could also work)

¼ cup coconut oil

¼ cup coconut sugar

Preparation

Streusel:

In a small bowl, combine all of your ingredients. Have some fun and mix it with your hands until crumbly.

In a medium bowl mix the roasted butternut squash, creamy coconut, eggs, flour, sugar and vanilla.

Pour into your pie shell. Top with the streusel and bake at 360F till firm, but cooked through. Should take between 45mins and an hour, depending on your oven.

Coconut Caramel Sauce

2 Tbsp water

¼ cup coconut sugar

1 can of full fat coconut milk or same amount  of blended young Thai coconut cream (you can buy both online)

1 vanilla bean split in half

In a saucepan, over medium high heat, bring the coconut milk, coconut sugar and the split vanilla bean to a boil.  Stir frequently. When the mixture comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and  Once boiling, turn the heat to low and continue boiling until thick, about 30-35 minutes. Remove from the heat. Remove the vanilla bean pod, making sure to scrape out any seeds of flavor that may be hanging on.

Store the caramel sauce in a mason jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. If the sauce has been in the fridge, place the jar in a pan of water that had been brought to a boil to bring it to heat before serving over the pie.
