Healthy Hacks: High Fibre, Refined Sugar-Free Gingerbread Men

High fibre and refined sugar free – you won’t be able to stop at just one of these healthy gingerbread men (and nor would be suggest you do). 


  • 2 3/4 cups almond meal
  • 1/2 tsp gluten free baking powder
  • 4-6 pitted dates
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 3 tbs macadamia oil
  • 2 ½ tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean extract
  • 1 egg white


  • Preheat oven to 150 degrees.

  • Combine almond meal, baking powder, dates, and spices in a food processor and whiz until ingredients are crumbed.

  • Add oil, maple syrup, vanilla and egg white and process again until a soft dough forms.

  • Transfer the dough to a sheet of grease proof paper, then cover with a second sheet of grease proof paper. Flatten slightly using a rolling pin (until approximately 3mm thick), then refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the dough to become firm.

  • When ready, cut into shapes using a gingerbread cutter then place cookies onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden then remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
