Gingerbread Biscuits

It's that time of the year again! Time to prepare some biscuits and a drink for Santa to enjoy on his stop over at your place! This year, why not prepare some gingerbread biscuits that are a little more gut loving than the traditional snacks left out for Santa?! I think Santa deserves a little gut-loving goodness, don't you?!

Prep | 10 minutes

Ready in | 30 minutes


  • 350-400g almond meal
  • 70g butter - at room temperature
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1-2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

To Make without Maple Syrup, use an extra 30g of butter and xylitol (to taste)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 160°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the almond meal and 70g of butter in a glass bowl (add in 100g butter if you are not using the maple syrup). 
  3. Using your fingertips, massage the butter into the almond meal until it resembles a crumbed texture.
  4. Add in salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg (and xylitol if using). Mix gently through with your hands.
  5. Transfer mix into a food processor or Thermomix. Add in orange zest, baking powder, apple cider vinegar, vanilla, maple syrup and melted coconut oil.
  6. Mix on a low speed until all ingredients are combined and mixture forms a dough.
  7. Using two pieces of baking paper (measuring approximately 30cm in length), place half of the dough between the pieces.
  8. With a rolling pin, roll out the dough to desired thickness. A thickness of between 0.5cm and 1cm works well for these.
  9. Using your gingerbread shaped cookie cutter, cut out gingerbread cookies and place on a lined baking tray.
  10. Place in the oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
