Gluten Free Gingerbread

Gluten Free Gingerbread

A festive treat full of Christmas flavour and spice that makes a great treat on christmas day or a delicious gift for family and friends. With a little bit of a twist on the traditional ingredients to make it a Low GI, healthy snack that everyone can enjoy.

  • LOW GI


  • 2 Cups Gluten Free Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Cup Macadamia Nuts
  • 3 tsp Ginger powder
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp Nutmeg powder
  • 2 Free Range or Organic Eggs
  • 125g Organic Butter (or you could try Coconut Oil if you prefer a Dairy Free option)
  • 1/2 Cup Big Tree Farms Coconut Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Big Tree Farms Coconut Amber Nectar
  • Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt


Cream butter and sugar in a bowl. Stir through the eggs and Coconut Nectar until combined. In your blender, process the Macadamia nuts until fine. Add all dry ingredients (all remaining ingredients) and mix until well combined. Stir the dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredient and mix until all ingredients are combined. Wrap in glad wrap and pop the mixture into the fridge for 1 hour to make the dough nice and firm.

After 1 hour, preset the oven to 170C. Then, remove the dough from the fridge and lightly kneed on a floured bench top. Roll out dough to desired thickness (about 5mm) and cut with cookie cutters. Place onto a tray covered with baking paper or flour and bake for approximately 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on the tray if possible to avoid and breakages. If you are feeling rather skilled you can transfer them to a cooling rack, but be careful not to crumble them in the process. Once cool you can decorate your cookies and display them in a nice jar or cellophane bag with some christmas ribbon and give them to your friends or family for a healthy and delicious christmas treat. Or..... just eat them yourself :-)
