YAY! At Test Your Intolerance we love watching Bake Off, as you probably already know. So, in line with this week’s theme of Spice, we have come up with an alternative spicy recipe for Gingerbread biscuits or people. It’s guilt-free and you do not have to worry about feeling unwell unless you have an intolerance or allergy to ginger of course.
Create your very own Gingy
Want to create your very own Gingerbread man or ‘Gingy’? Well, right here you can. These healthy recipes are the perfect treat, particularly if you fancy having a go at decorating your very own treats with your family. They are not bursting with calories and you can bake and cook them to your own personal preferences. Also, there is nothing wrong with being prepared and arming yourself with some delicious and healthy alternatives.
The What, Why and How?
Using wholemeal flour instead of a processed, white version you can make your own healthy gingerbread people! Guess what? They are also sugar-free! Remember to add a dash of in-season dates and a little bit of honey, you can ensure that you create the perfect healthy diet which is also incredibly nice to add. Fittingly falling in line with the Bake Off theme, it involves some delicious spices.
Ingredients for a Healthy Diet
All you need is 2 cups of plain wholemeal flour, as well as 1 cup of almonds. (REMEMBER to check that you do not have an allergy or intolerance to any of the almonds.) If you have a gluten intolerance, then you should definitely consider a quarter of a cup of honey, as well as a quarter of a cup of unsalted butter, or even olive oil!
5 large dates will also be extremely beneficial, as well as one egg and 1 teaspoon of baking powder. Here comes the spicy stuff! Add 1 teaspoon of ground ginger, this is increasingly important if you are looking to make gingerbread men! Take on the cinnamon challenge and half a tablespoon of nutmeg, as well as half a tablespoon of vanilla extract.
And there you go! You now have a list of ingredients to be included in your healthy diet!
