These gingerbread cookies are based on my family recipe!
These are my favorite Christmas cookies and I am so happy that I was able to make them plant based so everyone can enjoy them!
- 500 g flour
- 2 flax eggs (14gr of flax seed mixed with 5 tbsp of water)
- 240 g plant butter, margarine
- 200 g agave syrup (maple syrup, molasses)
- 140 g brown sugar
- 3 tsp baking powder
- 2-3 packs of gingerbread spice (mine were 23g each) depend on how intense flavor you want the cookies to have
- 2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 2 tbsp cocoa
This is a one bowl recipe – mix all dry ingredients in the bowl.
Prepare the flax egg by mixing flax seed and water, leave it for few min, then add to the dry ingredients with agave syrup and butter. Combine together.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Bake cookies about 8-10 min, depend on the size and thickness. I always pay attention to them as they burn easily.
Once ready, cookies can be decorated while still hot straight from the oven or later when they cool down.
I usually decorate mine with icing, dark chocolate and sprinkles.
Enjoy and let me know if you use my recipe!
