Orange Gingerbread Cookies {Gluten, Dairy, Sugar Free}

Well I am BACK! There are a few things that will look different for a little bit.

 

1) I won’t have photographs of me making the recipes, as finding the time to create them and capture them, isn’t yet doable. 

2) I can’t guarantee consistency, this blog is more just so I have all my favourite treats saved for friends and family to create healthy alternatives. 

 

Let’s get to it! 

This recipe is one that I tested out last year, but never shared as I needed to alter a few of the ingredients…well I finally attempted it again! 

 

It originally was a friends family Christmas recipe that they allowed me to alter into a gluten, dairy and sugar free version! 

 

This year I tried removing a few hard to find ingredients and add some more to add additional flavour without adding more sugar. 

 

Below you will find what I came up with! I give you the BEST orange gingerbread cookies you could imagine!

  • Using a cookie scoop or a TBSP measurer place drops onto a cookie sheet. Space them about an inch apart as they will spread while they cook.
  • Place in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Until the middle looks cooked.
  • These are great cookies to freeze and save for later. Enjoy!

The first one is basic Banana Ice Cream

Now you’ve got the base recipe down here is the first variation – CHOCOLATE!

This is super simple to do if you have cocoa hiding away in your cupboard.

 

Which I recommend you always do! 

 

Simply add your desired amount of flavour TBSP by TBSP.

One of my favourite toppings on this version of healthy ice cream is – coconut flakes.

 

Also try: hemp hearts or chia seeds

Alright now here is the fun part! If you actually read through the whole blog you get the secret!

This recipe can really be done with ANY frozen fruit and another of my favourites is with frozen Stawberries.

 

Use 2 1/2 cups of frozen ice cream instead of 3 frozen bananas. 

Lastly, cherries are the BEST! 

 

Substitute 2 cups frozen cherries instead of 3 frozen bananas.
