6 days till Christmas, how crazy? I’m pretty excited for Christmas this year because both dinner and lunch are at my house, which means I get to bake, bake and bake some more, and spend the whole day in my christmas bed socks catering (winning).
I’ve been stocking up the pantry and freezer the last couple weeks with my chocolate bliss balls; granola; coconut ice-cream; hummus; condiments; and chia jam, but whats a christmas collection without some gingerbread men (and ladies)?
These are usually done in the dehydrator for 12 hours but who seriously has time for that when you can make them in 20 minutes! For my first time, I have to say I’m pretty impressed with how they came out. Grain free; natural sugar; high protein and raw; theres all the spices and pure ginger flavour you’d except with traditional gingerbread, but more. (hows that poetry!)
