Growing up I was never crazy about ginger anything. However, as someone who is not crazy about chocolate (I like it, I just don’t crave it), I love all things cinnamon, vanilla, and ginger. Needless to say, I’m all about gingerbread!
Something about the flavor just draws me in, is so me, and it just pairs perfectly with anything cream cheese!!
When it comes to making the perfect gingerbread men, you can easily modify them to cater to your preferences. For the rich dark brown color, you can follow the instructions, or if you desire one less bold you can reduce the molasses. For a soft bake version you can bake following the instructions. If you desire a crispy version you simply bake a little longer!
What I love about this recipe, is everything! It features minimal ingredients, whole wheat based, easy, involves the perf blend of cinnamon and nutmeg, has a light airy texture, no dairy, no eggs or even vegan eggs, no butter, can easily be made in bulk, perf for Christmas, and non vegan approved!
If you’re searching for that staple vegan Gingerbread Men cookie recipe, you have to try my vegan whole wheat recipe!!
Why this recipe is great

Buttery soft texture
