Gluten free gingerbread sandwich cookies

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!

Double chocolate hazelnut cookies

When I was first starting to make healthy changes to my diet and lifestyle, one of the main things that I really missed was cookies! I was never a massive fan of having lots of desserts and didn’t really have a major sweet tooth, but cookies were something that I’ve always loved to accompany a good cup of tea! Different people have different preferences when it comes to the texture of a cookie.. a little bit like with cakes and brownies. Some people like cookies that are slightly more crisp and crunchy, whilst other people prefer a gooey, cookie dough kind of texture. These particular cookies are on the softer side with delicious chunks of raw chocolate and an amazingly rich and indulgent flavour from the cacao throughout.
