Raw Gingerbread Cookies

by Teniel Moore {raw foods contributor}

Who doesn’t love a gingerbread cookie at this time of the year?
To me the smell and spices of gingerbread reminds me of Christmas.

I have a wonderful easy raw gingerbread recipe for you that is made from all wholesome ingredients. Nothing highly processed or artificial.

A cookie you don’t have to feel bad about eating. Sounds good to me! This recipe does require a dehydrator. But don’t despair if you don’t have one. This cookie dough is good enough to eat raw.

Here are the delicious ingredients:

How to:

Raw Gingerbread Cookies
1 cup almond flour
1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup coconut sugar
2 tsp freshly grated ginger
1/4 cup coconut nectar
2 tsp black strap molasses
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Make your own almond and oat flour by grinding nuts and oats in a coffee grinder.

Place all the dry ingredients into a food processor and blend, then add the wet ingredients and blend.  Mix should come together in a ball.

Put mix on dehydrator sheet and roll out with your hands.  Mix will be sticky.  Cut into any shape you like.  Makes approximately 16 circle cookies.
Dehydrate on 105 for at least 6 hours, then take off the dehydrator sheet and continue to dry on trays until dried through.  Usually it will take at least12 hours or more.  Keep in the refrigerator. 


Your mix should come together into a ball in your food processor. It will feel a little sticky but should be firm enough to hold together & ready to be rolled out onto your dehydrator tray. 

You can make the cookies just oval shapes, but I love to make stars, large gingerbread men or Christmas trees. Have fun & make use of your Christmas cookie cutters while in the festive season.

Remember these cookies are not going to rise or change shape so they can be placed very close together on your dehydrator tray.

These cookies go nice with a glass of home made almond milk. A good treat to leave out for Santa this Christmas eve.

Raw gingerbread cookie dough tastes great raw too. So if you don’t have a dehydrator then simply roll the dough into balls and enjoy. I also love to crumble up some gingerbread cookies and top it onto some home made gingerbread ice- cream.

I hope you enjoy these cookies just as much as I do.
