Gingerbread Squares (Sneak peek of ENJOY cookbook)
This recipe is a sneak peek of my cookbook “ENJOY – healthy festive meals for you and your loved ones”. Filled with more than 50 recipes, ENJOY teaches others how to make delicious gluten and dairy-free, soy-free, paleo, and autoimmune protocol (AIP) friendly versions of favorite festive dishes, like stuffing and pumpkin pie. It’s also filled with tips and tricks to help you navigate social situations with dietary restrictions and live (and eat!) more sustainably. If you haven’t already, grab a copy here.
I am so excited to share this super delicious gingerbread recipe with you all. It is such a hit and it is going make this fall/winter season so much sweeter for you.
I have been experimenting with cake recipes for awhile. Even though I liked them I didn’t find them to be amazing enough to put up on my blog. The other day it suddenly got cold for one day in New York City and all I wanted to do is drink tea and eat gingerbread. So I looked for my old notes on cake recipes I came up with and decided to freestyle a gingerbread recipe. To my surprise it turned out really good right away. After a few tweaks it was perfect and ready to share with the world. 🙂
My husband loves it, my friends love it and I am convinced you are gonna love it too! But the most exciting part about it is that it is dairy-free, gluten-free, paleo, nut-free and refined sugar-free! Hence, if you have food restrictions and you can never eat dessert at a holiday party, just volunteer to make dessert and bring this gem along. I promise your friends won’t be able to tell that it is free from so many common food allergens.
For the best results simply mix all the wet ingredients first using a blender. In a separate bowl mix together the flours, spices and baking soda. Now blend it all together to form a smooth batter. This recipe is very easy to make and fast. It only has to bake for 30 minutes.
These gingerbread squares are the perfect recipe to make when you
- have friends over
- want to bring something for a holiday party
- want to cuddle up at home.
A nice side effect is that your house will smell divine!
