Gingerbread cookies are the perfect treat for the holiday season! Or make them for a fun activity with your children on the weekend. You can find cookie cutters that make any shapes you like, whether it’s gingerbread men and women, or stars, hearts, Christmas trees, animals, or any other shapes you like! Packed with warming spices like ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, these cookies bring a lot of joy, warmth, and comfort to the holiday season.
One of ginger’s special qualities is its ability to bring the body out of a reactive state by soothing nerves and muscles. Ginger helps bring balance and homeostasis, which is a wonderful aid during stressful times like the holiday season can be.
In a large bowl, whisk together the oat flour, arrowroot starch, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and coconut sugar.
In another bowl, stir together the date or maple syrup, applesauce, lemon juice, and melted coconut oil. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and stir with a spatula until you get a uniform, smooth dough. Divide the dough in two parts, wrap each piece in parchment paper or plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 325F/165C. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
Working with one piece of dough at a time, place it between two sheets of parchment paper and roll out with a rolling pin to about 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick.
Using cookie cutters, press shapes into the dough and pull away the excess. Form the excess into a large ball and continue rolling out and cutting shapes until all the dough is gone.
Transfer cookies to baking sheets and bake for 11-14 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges. Cool on a cooling rack before eating.
