So it wouldn’t really be Christmas time without a spot of festive baking and what better place to start that with some gingerbread cookies! The smell of gingerbreads baking in the oven just fills the whole kitchen with the most amazing scent of warming spices and leaves me feeling so festive! These cookies are actually gluten free, as they’re made with a combination of buckwheat flour and almonds for the flour part of the recipe. They’re also completely free of refined sugars and instead are sweetened using raw honey and cashew nut butter. Both of these also help to bind the dry ingredients together. For an extra superfood boost, I’ve also added in some maca powder, which has a really delicious caramel like flavour- so works well in sweet treats!
