Our Healthy Holiday Recipe Makeover: Gingerbread Cookies!

(Vegan & Gluten-Free)

Gingerbread cookies smell a lot like Christmas and the holiday season. Check out our recipe revamp that makes these delicious cookies vegan, gluten-free, and only 7 ingredients long. Get to cooking - It's a great way to bring the family together and involved in the kitchen.

Makes 30 cookies!

Dry ingredients:

  • 2 cups gluten-free oat flour
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground clove

Wet ingredients:

  • ½ cup pure maple syrup (or honey if non-vegan)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil


1. Preheat the oven to 320°F and line two baking trays with parchment paper or grease with coconut oil.

2. Place the pecans in a food processor and blend until flour forms. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend all together until a sticky dough forms.

3. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured counter to about ¼ inch thick.

4. Cut the dough with a gingerbread-man cutter (or whatever shape you wish) and transfer cutouts to the baking trays.

5. Bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown.

Enjoy for a sweet treat and share with friends and family!
