Chocolate Orange Gingerbread biscuits

Chocolate Orange Almond Butter Gingerbread

 

 

Pip & Nut fan Bonnie created these very cute gingerbread men with our Chocolate Orange Almond Butter, and they look so good we had to share them with you. Ideal for a bit of festive baking.

 

 

If you fancy making these yourself, here is the recipe from Bonnie:

 

Ingredients:
45g coconut butter or margarine, at room temp
45g + 1tsp Pip & Nut Chocolate Orange Almond Butter
25g brown sugar
30g protein powder – I used ginger biscuit flavour but chocolate will work too
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp malt syrup (or another sticky sweeter)
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp bicabonate of soda
1 flax egg
90g spelt flour (plus extra for rolling)
2 tsp water
To top: melted chocolate, icing sugar

 

Method:

 

Preheat oven to 180c and line a baking tray
Cream together the butter, almond butter and brown sugar
Add the protein powder and stir in, then add the cinnamon, malt syrup, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, bicarbonate of soda and flax egg. Stir well to combine
Sift in the flour and use your hands to form a dough. Add in a little water if it’s too crumbly
Transfer the dough to a clean surface and roll out until it/s about 1/2 a cm thick
Cut shapes with a cookie cutter and transfer to a baking tray. Repeat until all the dough is used up
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes then remove and allow to cool completely before decorating!
