If you need a Gingy to torture for information, here is a gluten free gingerbread man recipe, courtesy of Elana’s Pantry. (New York Times Bestselling author Elana Amsterdam founded Elana’s Pantry, the go-to website for easy, healthy, grain-free, Paleo recipes, in 2006, click here to see it)

Gingerbread Men Cookies
Serves: 36 gingerbread cookies

5 cups blanched almond flour (not almond meal)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ginger powder
¼ teaspoon cloves, ground
½ teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ cup grapeseed oil or palm shortening
½ cup agave nectar or honey
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
½ cup yacon syrup
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon lemon zest


  1. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, cinnamon, ginger powder, cloves, salt and baking soda
  2. In a smaller bowl, mix together grapeseed oil, agave, vanilla, yacon, eggs and lemon zest
  3. Stir wet ingredients into dry
  4. Chill dough in freezer for 1-2 hours
  5. Roll out dough between two pieces of parchment paper to ½ inch thick
  6. To make dough even easier to handle sprinkle with almond flour
  7. Remove top sheet of parchment paper, cut out cookies using a medium gingerbread man cookie cutter
  8. Decorate with nuts and dried fruit –we used pieces of lemon rind for the mouth
  9. Transfer with a spatula to a parchment lined baking sheet
  10. Cook at 350° for 12-15 minutes
  11. Cool and serve

This recipe will not come close to working properly without the recommended brands of almond flour
