Most of you probably don’t know but I’ve been vegan/plant based for over 3 years now.
So during these fun times of year I love sharing some yummy goodies with everyone around me. Keep in mind this recipe is vegan and gluten free and it is on the dense side but if you warm it with a little butter it's so yummy!
You can also DIY your gingerbread spice instead of purchasing a pre-made spice blend. This saves money, kitchen cabinet space and of course, packaging. The spices that make up “gingerbread” are cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg and cloves. Use about 2 tbsp of gingerbread and cinnamon and 1 tsp of the rest to make! If you have the luxury of grinding your own spices from the full form, it goes without saying that the flavour is even more intense.
