Spicy Gingerbread Men 2010

This year is round 2 for raw vegan gingerbread men at our house. 

The recipe this year is actually pretty amazing. My kids LOVE them {mainly for the fun shapes} and so do I. In fact my oldest son had one for breakfast and it's nice being able to say 'SURE' without feeling guilty about it. Gotta love that!


1 1/4c oat flour
1/2c cashew flour
1/4c macadamia nut flour
5 whole cloves ground/mashed up
1tsp ginger powder
1tsp nutmeg
1/2tsp sea salt

1/8c coconut oil
1/4 + 2 Tbls maple sugar
1/4  + 1 Tbls date paste/syrup

You can make your own oat and nut flours by grinding them up into fine powders using a food processor, vitamix OR a coffee grinder. Then, measure out the above amounts. 

In a food processor, blend the dry ingredients together. Then add maple sugar and blend again. Add wet ingredients and blend until smooth. 

Using a teflex and cookie cutter press dough until flat and create shapes of all kinds. I did mine about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. Dehydrate for 12 hours {or overnight}.
