Gluten Free - Gingerbread Man Recipe


I can't wait to make these. These are both Paleo and Vegan and pretty simple to make.  You can use the frosting recipe to make some frosting to decorate your cookies or if you want to make a gingerbread house you would just need to cut out your pieces!  Enjoy these with a glass of this Warm Cinnamon Almond Milk
You don't have to give up treats this holiday season!  You just need to Eat Clean!

4.     Slowly add the liquid mixture from the sauce pan into the flour mixture until a dough forms.
5.     Roll the dough between two sheets of parchment paper. For chewier cookies, roll the dough to about 1/4" thick, for crisper cookies roll the dough thinner. Cut with your favorite cookie cutters.
6.     Bake on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for 20-25 minutes.
7.     Allow cookies to cool thoroughly and decorate with frosting.
