Gingerbread men

This is a newer version of my recipe last year that’s even more gingery and delicious! Gingerbread always reminds me of Christmas and is something I only tend to eat during this time of year. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!


  • 65g vegan butter (softened)
  • 50g coconut sugar
  • 1 flax egg
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 160g spelt (or plain) flour
  • 2 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 180c and lay out some baking paper on a baking tray
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar then stir in the flax egg and molasses
  3. In a separate bowl, sift in the flour then add the spices and bicarbonate of soda.
  4. Add the butter mixture to the flour mixture and combine to form a dough
  5. Transfer the dough to a floured surface and roll out to about 1/2 a centimetre thick. Cut your gingerbread men with a cookie cutter and place on the baking tray.
  6. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes (until they begin to brown) then leave to cool completely before decorating.
