Baby Led Weaning Grain Free Gingerbread Cookies – Gluten free Cookies

One of the biggest requests on Baby Led Feeding is for gluten-free baby recipes, so I decided why not make a gluten free gingerbread cookie recipe. This is honestly one of the easiest and most delicious recipes ever and I see a lot more cookies in my future 🙂

The base cookie part uses only 3 ingredients and you probably already have them in your cupboards so no excuses. I used ground oats for my version and they are yummy! Just take the oats and place in a blender. Blend until they turn into a super fine powder and voila that is it!

Mix together the peanut butter and maple syrup until it turns into smooth paste then slowly add the flour and spices. Ground clove and nutmeg are both really strong so only use the recommended 1/4 teaspoon as per the recipe. When mixed with cinnamon and ground ginger your kitchen will simply smell like Christmas!

Parchment paper is your friend when it comes to this recipes. I place a sheet onto a baking tray, then roll out the dough on the tray and cut into shapes. It not only makes less of a mess but it is so easy to do it this way too. You will never look back I promise! I used regular cutters here, but cookies stamps work amazing on gingerbread dough. How cute are these cookie stamps!!?!?! I’ll be adding them to my Christmas list this year! 

Serve these cookies with vegan gingerbread hot chocolate, warm milk or just gobble gobble gobble all on their own.
