When you make biscuits you need to focus otherwise you end up burning them! I am not always good at focusing and that’s why my little vegan gingerbread man is a bit burnt. It is still lovely and spicy! I like gingerbread men, we don’t have them in France and this is a little festive treat that I find really nice. Besides, it is a very easy treat to make. Ideal little present for friends and family. Have a great winter break everyone! See you next year. x

Here is how to make those little gingerbread men (using a scale this time):

Makes around 15 little men

350g organic plain flour

175g raw sugar

100g dairy free butter

1 flaxseed egg

6 tbsp of golden syrup

1 tsp of bicarbonate of soda

2 tsp of ginger

1/2 tsp of all spice

– Put the flour, ginger, all spice and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl. Mix them with your hands.

– Add the butter and mix well with your fingertips until crumbly.

– Add the sugar and the flaxseed egg (to make a flaxseed egg add 3 tsp of luke warm water to 1 tsp of ground flaxseed. Leave it to set for 1 or 2 minutes then stir well), mix well with your hands.

– Add the golden syrup to the mixture and a bit of water if the mixture is not wet enough.

– Mix until you obtain a ball of pastry.

– Roll out the pastry using a roller to about 5mm thick.

– Using a cutter, cut gingerbread man shapes and put them on a tray.

– Put the tray in the over for about 10-15 minutes at around 180c.

– Et voilĂ !
