Gingerbread Men

Gluten-free Gingerbread Men


Gluten-free Gingerbread Men
Serves 25
I love making these - they're delicious and crunchy and made with gluten-free flours. One useful "ingredient" I use is my kids to help me, but this is not a required ingredient! At least it makes it more fun! Oh, and a crazy mess! Follow me on instagram @thewriterunner and I blog too on www.inspiredhealth.co.nz - Rachel Grunwell

Ingredients
  1. 3 tablespoons of golden syrup
  2. ½ a cup of sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon of mixed spice and cinnamon
  4. 1.5 teaspoons of ground ginger
  5. 1 tablespoon of water.
  6. 50g of butter
  7. 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  8. 200g of sifted gluten-free flour (I use 2 tsp Xanthum gum, two parts brown rice flour and one part potato flour)
  9. 1 teaspoon of baking powder
Instructions
  1. Put golden syrup in a pan, along with sugar, mixed spice, cinnamon, ground ginger and water.
  2. Heat until sugar dissolves and then melt butter in it.
  3. Take the pan off the element and add baking soda (it goes a little frothy).
  4. In another bowl, put sifted gluten-free flour, baking powder and then add the heated ingredients from the pan and mix until a workable dough. Add more flour until you get a dough you can roll out and easily put shapes in this. I use a spatula to lift the shapes up from the bench and onto the tray (so they stay in one piece).
  5. Bake these on a greased tray, 180-degrees for about 10 mins. Enjoy!
Notes
  1. I use a spatula to lift the shapes up from the bench and onto the tray (so they stay in one piece)
