  • Oven


  • 100 g margarine
  • 150 g self-raising flour
  • 100 g oat flour
  • 8 tsp biscuit and gingerbread spices
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 50 g coconut sugar
  • 7.5 g stevia
  • 80 ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Heat the oven to 170 degrees. Stir the self-raising flour, oat flour, stevia, coconut sugar, gingerbread spices, cinnamon, baking powder and a pinch of salt together in a bowl.
  • Add the cold margarine, vanilla extract, and milk and knead into a firm ball. Do not knead too long, because the dough should not get too hot.
  • Roll the dough into a thin layer. Place a gingerbread man mold several times in the dough to create the cookies. Line a baking tray with a piece of baking paper. Place the cookies on the baking tray. (the cookies will rise in the oven, don't make them too thick)
  • Put the gingerbread men in the oven for about 20-25 minutes. When they come out of the oven they will still feel a bit soft but when they have cooled down they will become crispy.
  • Make sure to decorate them!! 🙂


Vegan: use vegan margarine and plant-based milk.
