If you’re looking for a fun gift idea for the baker in your life, look no further. I know I’d personally be thrilled to receive a cookie mix in a jar. I’d definitely choose that over a kooky hat from a co-worker who thinks they “get you.” We’ve all been there. Don’t be that person.
These cookies are gluten free, vegan, and 100% delicious. I’ve actually been selling these cookies at Christmas Markets lately, and many customers are unsuspecting children unaware they’re eating a gluten free cookie made without butter or white sugar. P.S. They’re kid-approved!
It always frustrates me when people hear the words “gluten” and “free” together and automatically assume they won’t like it. The way I look at it is, it’s like anything else – someone can make you a potato salad who doesn’t posess the skill to cook and season it properly. Then you go to eat it, think it tastes awful and wonder why you see people eating potato salad with smiles on their faces.
It’s the same as gluten free baking, it’s a skill. It tastes amazing if you know what you’re doing, just like potato salad can taste like the best thing ever or the worst thing ever.
This recipe makes about one dozen medium sized cookies, or a little extra if you roll the dough thinner. The tiny gingerbread cookie cutters are fun to use too. It’s what I used in the picture below.
If you’re looking for a gluten free gingerbread house recipe, you can check out my post from last year. It’s a completely all-natural house and is a ton of fun to make. You could also follow that recipe to make 4 dozen cookies.
- ½ cup + 1 Tbsp Buckwheat Flour
- ¼ + ⅛ cup Sorghum Flour
- ⅓ cup Coconut Sugar
- ¼ cup White Rice Flour
- ¾ tsp Cinnamon
- ½ tsp Ginger
- ¼ tsp Baking Soda
