Instructions

INGREDIENTS:  (Makes approx 20)
125g Cashews (Plus more for decorating)
6 Dates
1 Eggs
100g Whole Wheat Flour (I used Rude Health) (Plus more for dusting)
1tsp Cinnamon
1tsp Ginger
½ tsp Nutmeg
1/2tsp Coconut oil (For oiling the parchment paper) (I used VitaCoco)
Cacao nibs (for decorating)

 

RECIPE:
Pre heat the oven to 180˚C
Pour hot water over the cashew nuts and leave to soak for 10-15mins. Strain off the water and blend the nuts until a powder forms.
Finely chop the dates and add them to the cashews and blend again until a chunky dough forms.
Transfer the dough to a large bowl and stir in an egg until smooth.
In another bowl mix together the flour, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
Then slowly mix in all the dry ingredients in to the large bowl with the sticky cashew dough.
Keep stirring until it forms together in a ball.
Dust the kitchen counter in flour and knead the dough until no longer sticky.
Add a little more flour to the work surface and roll out the dough until around ½ cm thick.
Cut out your little ginger bread men and place them on an oiled sheet of parchment paper.
Squash together the remaining cut-offs and roll out the dough again and cut out more gingerbread men! Repeat until all the dough has been used.
Decorate them as you wish. I used cacao nibs and cashew nuts.
Bake in the oven for 10-15mins.
Allow to cool on a wire rack and then munch away
