Adela's Gingerbread Cookies

Here we go, my healthy-ish version of the famous gingerbread cookie.

I’m not making gingerbread boys or girls, just FYI, as they remind me of toilet signs, I prefer other Christmas shapes.


We’re definitely in the home run to Christmas! Yay!


Adela's Gingerbread Cookies 2

Ingredients (to make around 40 fun shaped cookies):

  • 1 cup rapadura sugar (if not available raw cane sugar will do)
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 large egg
  • 1  1/2 tsp freshly ground ginger
  • 2 tbsp raw honey
  • 1  1/2 tbsp orange zest


  • 2  1/4 cups of all-purpose unbleached white flower
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1  1/2 tsp baking soda


Mix the first 6 ingredients above together. (Starting by creaming the sugar and the butter together).

In a separate bowl mix the second 6 ingredients.

Then combine both mixtures together.


Chill the dough in the fridge for around 2 hours.


Preheat the oven to 375 ℉ (190 ℃)

Grease a baking sheet with butter and place on a baking tray.

On a floured surface roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick (0.5cm). Cut it into your Christmas forms (mine were stars, trees and a snowmen).

Place them on the buttered baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
