Gluten-free Gingerbread Reindeer Cookies

There are so many fun ways to involve your little ones in Christmas baking, but Gingerbread cookies have to be one of my favorites.

Plus you have to admit, baking is twice the fun when you involve the little ones.

This is the easiest gingerbread cookies recipe you can find plus they are perfect for Christmas gifts and taste amazing too! Don’t forget to add Rudolph’s red nose!

If Christmas was a flavour, what would it be? For me it would definitely be the warm and spciy gingerbread.

Before you get sad because you don’t have a reindeer shaped cookie cutter, let me tell you a little secret about these cookies.

All you need is a simple gingerbread man cutter….and all you need to do, is cut out the gingerbread men as normal and then turn them upside down. Voilà!

Ingredients :

3/4 cup vegan
butter, softened
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 1/2 cups (430 g.)
gluten-free flour
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda

80 gr Melted Chocolate (to draw the reindeers)


  1. In a large bowl combine vegan butter and coconut sugar.
    Beat with a hand mixer
    until smooth and creamy.
  2. Add egg, molasses, and
    vanilla to the mixture and mix.
  3. In a medium bowl.
    combine flour,
    cinnamon, ginger,
    nutmeg, salt, and baking powder. Mix well.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the
    wet ingredients and
    carefully mix to
    combine until a soft
    dough forms (it should
    be a bit like play-dough).
  5. Divide the dough into
    two and wrap
    tightly in plastic wrap.
  6. Chill the dough for at
    least 1 hour. (Don’t
    skip this step)
  7. Unwrap the dough
    and lightly flour
    the top. Cover with a
    second piece of
    parchment paper and
    use a rolling pin to roll
    the dough out.
  8. Use the cookie cutter to punch out your shapes
  9. Bake your cookies at 175C degrees for about 8-10 minutes.
  10. Let them cool down then you can draw your reindeers with a melted chocolate in a piping bag.
