FODMAP Friendly Gingerbread Men

Hello everyone! As I mentioned yesterday, I did some baking today to test out one of the FODMAP Friendly Christmas recipes I have been wanting to try. Today I made Gingerbread Men and they worked out really well, and they taste like good old fashioned Gingerbread! So if you’ve been wanting to try a FODMAP Friendly Gingerbread recipe, you should give this one a try.



1 cup plain gluten free flour

2 cups self-raising gluten free flour

1 & a 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon powder

1 & a 1/2 tablespoons ginger powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted

1/2 cup maple syrup

1 tablespoon vanilla essence

2 eggs


In a bowl combine, both gluten free flours, cinnamon, ginger and baking soda

In another bowl, combine coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and eggs.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry. At this stage you will still have a few crumbly bits.

Tip out onto the bench and knead until fully combined and the dough is smooth.

Chill dough in refrigerator for 15 minutes. If the mixture crumbles after being in the refrigerator, knead in some more melted coconut oil until the dough becomes the right consistency again.

Roll out the dough between two pieces of baking paper, it should be about 1 cm thick.

 Remove the top sheet of the baking paper, cut out cookies and place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Repeat the rolling and cutting of the dough until all the mixture is used.

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes.

Makes 24 cookies.

Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and look out for my FODMAP Friendly Shortbread that I plan to make later this week!
