Gingerbread just got easier AND plant-based!


1 tablespoons Linseed
140g Vegan margarine
100g Dark muscovado sugar
3 tablespoons Golden syrup
350g Plain flour
1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon Ground ginger
2 teaspoons Ground cinnamon


Combine the linseed with 2½ tbsp water, and leave to thicken for 5 mins and line two baking sheets with baking parchment.

Melt the margarine, sugar and syrup in a pan over a low heat, then transfer to a medium bowl and leave to cool slightly.

Stir in the flaxseed mix, then the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger, cinnamon and a pinch of salt until it comes together into a smooth dough. Chill for 30-45 mins until firm.

Pre heat the oven to 200C or 180C for fan assisted ovens. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to a 5mm thickness. Cut out as many gingerbread people as you can, then re-roll the trimmings and continue until all the dough is used.

Place the biscuits onto the prepared sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until golden. Leave to cool.

We've decorated ours with chocolate and sprinkles!
