VEGAN GLUTEN-FREE GINGERBREAD MEN

Ingredients
  1. 1 batch flax egg
  2. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  3. 1/4 cup almond butter
  4. 3 Tbsp molasses
  5. 1/4 cup vegan butter (softened)
  6. 3/4 tsp ginger
  7. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  8. 1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional)
  9. 1/4 tsp salt
  10. 1/2 tsp baking soda
  11. 1 1/4 - 1 3/4 cups gluten-free baking / pancake mix
Instructions
  • In a large mixing bowl, prepare flax egg by mixing flax and water and letting rest for 5 minutes.
  • Add softened butter, molasses, almond butter, brown sugar, salt, spices, baking soda and beat on low with a mixer, or vigorously whisk.
  • Add gluten free flour to the wet ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon. Stir until well combined. Your dough should hold its shape when pressed, but not feel dry. I found that 1.5 cups (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size) was about the perfect amount, but this will depend on your blend.
  • Cover and chill dough for at least one hour (preferably overnight).
  • Once chilled, preheat oven to 350 degrees (176 C). Carefully roll out dough to a little thicker than 1/8 inch between two sheets of plastic wrap or parchment/wax paper, generously sprinkling the bottom layer and the top of the dough with white or brown rice flour before rolling. You don't want it too thin or they'll be too crisp.
