These fill the house with fabulous Christmas baking smells but are so easy to make. Gluten & dairy free. Makes 10-12.
50g Coconut oil (melted but cool)
35g coconut sugar or good quality brown muscovado
2tbs molasses or black treacle
1tsp vanilla extract
30g coconut flour
120g almond flour (I used ground almonds)
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp salt
Oven to 175C
Line a baking sheet with baking parchment
Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Whisk the egg into molasses & vanilla then mix into dry ingredients adding oil at the end.
Leave to rest for 1/2 hour for coconut flour to re-hydrate & dough to firm up.
Take a dessertspoon & form balls gently in your fingertips. Place/space onto sheet & flatten slightly.
Bake for 11-13 mins then leave to cool on the tray for 10-15 mins before removing to wire rack to cool thoroughly
Store in airtight container, if you must!!
