Soft Baked Iced Gingerbread Cookies

If you love gingerbread cookies, you have to try these Soft-Baked Iced Gingerbread Cookies!  They are perfect for holidays and very easy to make.  I used Pamela’s grain and gluten-free nut flour blend.

One thing I really love about this nut flour blend is that there are no added ingredients.  Typically, gluten free flours often contain xanthan gum or guar gum.  Pamela’s has neither.  The only ingredients in this flour blend are: almond flour, coconut flour, pecan flour and walnut flour.

5 Minute Healthy Frosting (Vegan & Paleo)

5 Minute Healthy Frosting.  I love when a recipe accidentally turns into something wonderful.  This is the case in this 5 minute healthy vegan frosting recipe.

I made some donuts and I wanted to make a glaze to dip them in.  Well the glaze ended up looking more like a frosting.

So that is how this 5 minute healthy frosting was born.  This is a great base frosting recipe that you can add in your own flavors too.

I can see it easily becoming a strawberry frosting with a little fruit added.  Or you can add some cocoa powder to make it a chocolate frosting.

It was very easy to spread. I could see this frosting being a great addition to my flourless chocolate muffins.


5 Minute Healthy Frosting - My Whole Food Life


This frosting literally takes minutes to make.  Hence the 5 minute frosting name. 🙂  It’s also vegan, gluten free and paleo approved.

This healthy frosting recipe would make a great dairy free alternative as well. The base is made from coconut butter.

I highly recommend only using this frosting right before you eat it.  Once it refrigerates, it becomes hard.

However, since it does become hard in the fridge, it would be a great frosting for sugar cookie cutouts.  Or even frosted gingerbread cookies.
