Healthy, High Protein Wattleseed, Gluten Free Gingerbread Men Recipe

December 9, 2017 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Here’s a healthy, nutrient dense, gluten free version of the little Christmas treats we all love. Introducing, Wattleseed-Men! High in protein and free from refined sugar so you don’t have to worry about the waist-line this holiday season. A great way to get the kids in the kitchen and delicious dipped in your coffee (or egg nog)! A little decorating tip – add Australian Superfood Powders to your topping mixture for a bit of colour.

Makes 10
Ingredients
2 3/4 cups almond meal
1/2 tsp gluten free baking powder
4-6 pitted dates
1 tsp Ground Wattleseed
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
Topping (adjust quantities as required):
1/4 cup cacao butter
1 tbs coconut oil
3 tbs maple syrup
Directions

Preheat oven to 150 degrees.

Combine almond meal, baking powder, dates, wattleseed 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.

Meanwhile, combine your topping ingredients in a bowl. Using a piping bag made of baking paper, you can now decorate your Wattleseed-Men however you like – smiley, grumpy, silly, spotty, dressed up, dressed down… go nuts!
