I also like that this recipe for my vegan gingerbread men cookies does not have molasses or golden syrup. Only almond meal, maple syrup and spices.

You can also add frosting and decorating to your cookies but I often jut make them plain as they are really delicious just as it is. You can add chocolate chips instead to make eyes.

Vegan Gluten-free Gingerbread Men Cookies

Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 15 cookies


  • 2 1/3 cup almond meal (almond flour)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 1 tsp ginger powder (or more)


  • Preheat your oven to 120 degrees Celsius. (250F)
  • In a bowl combine the almond meal, maple syrup and spices. Place the dough in the freezer (just in the bowl is fine) for 20 minutes.
  • Once the dough has cooled, place the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper and roll out until about 4mm thick. Use a gingerbread man cutter and other cookies cutters to cut out shapes. Place on trays about 3cm apart. Repeat with any excess dough. Place the excess dough in the freezer to re-cool in between batches.
  • Place the cookies in the oven to cook at 120 degrees C (250F) for 15 minutes. Leave to cool and decorate if you wish.

Now this recipe works very well but you need to follow the exact quantities and make sure your dough is cold enough to roll and make the shapes.

I place my dough in the freezer 20 minutes and cool the excess dough in the freezer between each round of cutting shapes.

And it is easier to move the parchment paper with the cookies to the oven tray as opposed to move each cookie one by one.
