Ginger bread cookies

These ginger bread cookies, created by our Naturopath Shiho Mafune, are a healthy alternative to your usual christmas treats, and will be the highlight of your christmas get together! You could add dark chocolate chunks for a more descendant version.


300 g (3 cups) almond meal / almond flour

125 ml (1/2 cup) organic coconut oil 

125 ml (1/2 cup) pure maple syrup

1 tsp of ground ginger 

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1/2 tsp of nutmeg

1/4 tsp of salt

1/2 tsp baking soda


  1. Preheat your oven to 150°C. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix it into a dough. If your mixture is too dry for any reason, add 1-2  tablespoons of water until a dough forms.

  2. Form into small cookies (or into a gingerbread man shape using a cookie cutter) and place onto a lined baking tray. 

  3. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven,  and once cooled down serve and enjoy with a warm cup of tea!
