Gingerbread Spelt Cookies


Gingerbread is a long standing christmas tradition.

With a new baby in the house it has got us thinking about the Christmas traditions we would like to start this year for our little girl to grow up with and enjoy! Christmas baking is something I personally love, so while she can’t actually eat them this year, starting this tradition is so special.¬†These gingerbread spelt cookies are a healthier take on the traditional cookies we all love!

Spelt flour being a wholegrain, high in minerals and with a low gluten content. Full of delicious spices and refine sugar free, using pure maple syrup as a sweetener.

For a dairy free/ vegan alternative you can switch the butter for coconut oil.
