Soft Baked Iced Gingerbread Cookies

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Pamela’s, but all opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that I love.

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.

Gluten Free Gingerbread Pancakes

I have the perfect holiday breakfast for you.  Gluten Free Gingerbread Pancakes.  I already have a recipe for gingerbread pancakes on the blog, but it’s not gluten free.  So I slightly tweaked that recipe to come up with these gluten free gingerbread pancakes.  This would be the perfect breakfast for Christmas morning.  To make things easier, you could mix the dry ingredients the night before.  Then it’s super quick to pull these together.  Imagine how great your house will smell too!  I added chocolate chips to mine for an extra special treat.

Not only are these healthy gingerbread pancakes gluten free, they are also vegan and contain no oil.  Other than the small amount I added to the pan for cooking.  This is a recipe you could make a big batch of and freeze some.  This is great for those busy mornings!

Flourless Gingerbread Cookies

So you know I am a huge fan of flourless cookies.  These Flourless Gingerbread Cookies are my latest creation.  These Flourless Gingerbread Cookies came out really well.  Crispy on the outside and soft in the middle.  My husband liked them so much, he didn’t want to share any!  These flourless cookies are super easy to make and you only need 5 simple ingredients!

I used cashew butter in my recipe for it’s mild flavor and buttery texture.  I think macadamia butter would work well too.  You can probably use peanut butter or almond butter as well, but the taste may be a little different.  Sunflower butter is an option for those with nut allergies.  These gingerbread cookies would be great for cookies swaps.  Don’t tell anyone they are made healthier.  I promise they will never know!  This makes a small batch of cookies so you will not be stuck with a huge batch in the house.  Please let these cookies cool completely before removing from the baking sheet.  Otherwise they could crumble. Enjoy!

This ice cream is very easy to make.  I used my ice cream maker for this and it took about 20 minutes.  Having an ice cream maker is awesome.  I made my money back very quickly.  Have you priced organic/dairyfree/glutenfree ice cream lately?  It’s crazy.  You can make your own frozen desserts for very little.

Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal

Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal. Now that Thanksgiving is officially over, I feel it’s time to spread the gingerbread love with some more vegan gingerbread recipes!

Baked oatmeal is so great.  It’s the oatmeal you can take on the go.  This is a very easy gingerbread recipe that takes very little time to make.

These are freezable as well, so feel free to double the batch and freeze some.  That way they can be for those mornings when you need a quick breakfast on the go.

Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 15 min



  1. Preheat the oven to 350. 
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl .  Mix wet in another.  Add wet to dry and mix well. 
  3. Spoon batter into lined muffin pans and press down well with the back of a spoon.
  4. Bake in the oven for 15-17 minutes. 
  5. Wait until they are completely cooled before removing them from the pans.


Recipe Notes

I used jumbo muffin pans and got only 4. You can probably get double the amount using standard sized muffin pans .

These should last a week in the fridge and longer in the freezer. And don’t forget, you can use gluten-free oats to make them gluten-free. Enjoy!
