Gluten-free gingerbread cookies

Suitable from 12 months

Gluten-free gingerbread cookies
Pre-christmas time without gingerbread cookies – especially in Sweden – is simply unthinkable! There are 1001 gingerbread cookie recipes on the net, but we wanted to come up with a gluten-free, low-sugar version. We’ve tried a few different variations and this one came out best. The kids have given their approval!
I’m so happy that our son is now getting to the age where he really thinks that baking is a lot of fun, and if it involves the use of cookie cutters, even better! The other day, I bought some new shapes at the local second hand store, so our collection is getting quite extensive. Maybe this year we’ll even attempt to make and decorate a gingerbread house. I wonder who is having more fun, the children or me? 🙂

Recipe tips
Unused dough can be wrapped in plastic foil or stored in an airtight container and be kept in the fridge for a couple of days. Make sure to leave the dough in the fridge for an hour or so before using, to give the almond and coconut flours time to swell and to avoid having a very soft dough. If you are in a hurry or don’t want to deal with cookie cutters, you can simply roll the dough into little balls and flatten them onto your baking sheet.


Speak Your Mind



  1. Is there supposed to be ginger in this?

      Hi Beth!

      Thank you for your comment. There is cinnamon in the pumpkin pie spice!

      We hope you enjoy it.
