Recipe: Dr. Jiwani’s Paleo Vegan Grain-Free Gingerbread Cookies

(Low Carb Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free Corn-Free Soy-Free Sugar-Free for Diabetic Vegan Paleo Keto & Candida Diets)

 

Dr. Jiwani’s Paleo Vegan Grain-Free Gingerbread Cookies are the ultimate expression of why I love the holiday season, the warmth & love of family and friends getting together. These gingerbread cookies are the perfect December treat with lovely warming spices and sweetness that only gingerbread can bring.

I believe that you can be allergy-free & healthy year round. Festivities occur almost monthly, and you should not have to suffer physically & mentally to enjoy life, celebrations & food. I have listed an entire holiday meal below to ensure you can provide an allergy-free, healthy festive spread for your family. Health should be a family affair, as it’s a wonderful way to show your love.

Show Your Family Love with Healthy Holiday Treats

Teach your family that there is life after food allergies with Dr. Jiwani’s guilt-free goodies. You can start reversing the effects of the industrial revolution and the carb crazed processed foods that people are programmed to love. Inspire your kids to realize that healthy food can taste even yummier than store bought. Substitutes are critical, as most of us live to eat. Ever since Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster and the many delectable store bought options, I’ve wanted to indulge without triggering the onslaught of my many autoimmune diseases

Once my health became an issue, I started reading labels and was astonished to find so much sugar & potential allergens (read “gluten-free” as a carb nightmare, and chock full of other allergies) in the cookies, often over 15 grams of Net Carbs per Cookie! Who wants to eat just half a cookie to stay Keto???

Typical Gluten-Free Gingerbread Cookies Ingredient Label (Read in Horror!):

Ingredients:  Molasses, Flour Blend (Brown Rice Flour, White Rice Flour, Tapioca Starch, Sweet Rice Flour, Xanthan Gum), Monounsaturated Safflower Oil, Sliced Almonds, Ginger, Cinnamon, Baking Soda, Nutmeg, Allspice, Cloves.

Allergens: Almonds. Produced on equipment that also makes products containing Peanuts, Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans, Coconut, Eggs, Soy And Milk. 

The Ginger within your Gingerbread provides many health benefits including reducing pain & nausea, improving digestion & immunity, healing GERD & stomach ulcers, while antibacterial, anti-fungal & anti-inflammatory, and improving diabetes, cholesterol & weight loss. Use Organic Ginger for the most effective & healthful form.

Dr. Jiwani’s Paleo Vegan Grain-Free Gingerbread Cookies are a healthy twist on the old classic Gingerbread Cookies that I grew up enjoying. I knew I had to adapt a version catering to patients with various modified diets, due to the concern of those allergic or restricted from Gluten, Sugar, Eggs, Butter & Carbs.

Dr. Jiwani’s Paleo Vegan Grain-Free Gingerbread Cookies are the perfect holiday treat, yet Low Carb, Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Corn-Free ideal for Diabetic, Grain-Free, Vegan, Paleo, Keto & Candida Diets.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Instructions for Paleo Vegan Grain-Free Gingerbread Cookies

Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit

Line baking sheets with recycled parchment paper

Prepare Chia or Flax Egg Replacer: mix water with ground seeds, set aside for 15 minutes

Grind Nuts or Seeds with food processor into flour-like, super fine consistency

Measure & combine all dry ingredients into large bowl or Kitchen Aid Mixer:  Nut or Seed Flour, Coconut Flour, Baking Powder, Xanthan Gum, Spices and Dry Sweetener: Xylitol or Coconut Sugar or Stevia

Stir in Coconut Oil, Eggs or Chia or Flax Egg Replacer, and Wet Sweetener: Molasses or Yacon Syrup or Coconut Nectar until dough forms

Place 1/2 of dough onto large piece of parchment paper, cover with another equal sized parchment paper

Roll out cookie dough to 1/4 inch thick. If dough is too thin, cookies will become harder & chewier, if dough is too thick, cookies may become softer & cake-like. It’s a Goldilocks situation

Dip various shaped cookie cutters into extra coconut flour to get desired shapes that come off easily & place straight onto baking sheets.

Collect dough scraps and continue rolling and cutting shapes until all the dough is used up

Bake at 275 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and firm to touch. Depending on your oven, use caution after 20 minutes

Remove from oven & let cool for 5 minutes.

Transfer parchment paper with cookies onto counter to completely cool.

Cool Cookies for 1 hour to allow them to gel, to prevent breaking or crumbling

Frosting is optional, if your cookies last that long!

Whip Frosting Ingredients together, adjusting for desired consistency

Pipe frosting onto cooled cookies and allow to set for at least 30 minutes

Serve with a smile, knowing that healthy goodness prevails in your household ?
