Gingerbread Christmas Cookies

We all love to celebrate the holidays with delicious food.

Those patients who are undergoing SIBO treatment may have thought they were up for a challenge, but Rebecca Coomes from The Healthy Gut has got it covered with her new SIBO Christmas E-Cookbook.

Here’s a taste tester to help your patients get started in holiday style.

Gingerbread Cookies

Makes 16 (2 per serving)

Phase 1 – Semi Restricted, Gluten Free, Vegetarian

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond meal
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate / baking soda
  • 3 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • 3 tbs honey
  • 4 tbs / 80g / 2.5 oz butter

Method

Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F.  Line two baking sheets with baking/parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together.  Sift the bicarbonate/baking soda into the mixture so it doesn’t leave lumps.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and honey, then pour into the dry ingredients.  Mix thoroughly, then roll into a ball.

Place baking/parchment paper on your work surface.  Place the dough on top, then cover with a second piece of paper.  With a rolling pin, roll out the dough to an even thickness.  Use a cookie cutter to cut out as many shapes as you can.  Place the cookies on the sheet.  Leave a 2-3cm/1-inch gap between each cookie to allow it to expand during cooking.

Repeat the process until all dough has been cut into cookies.  Bake for 10 minutes until golden.  Remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
