Here’s the recipes I created last year

Soft Baked Gingerbread Men

Peppermint Chocolate Brownies

Mincemeat Cookies

Mince Pies

My favourite recipe to make is the mince pies. I made at least 4 batches of them throughout December.  If you want to make them completely from scratch then a little forward planning is needed. As I made my own mincemeat, its great to be able customise it to suit your own taste.

If you want the flavour of a gingerbread man but not the hassle of making them. Then this recipe is perfect for you. As it has all the same great warming spices packed into a muffin form.

Gingerbread Muffin Ingredients 

Almond flour



Ground cloves


Mixed spice


Baking powder

Baking soda

Naturally Sweetened  

For this recipe I used a banana to sweeten the muffins instead of sugar. Not only does it give the muffins a nice sweetness but it keeps them soft and moist as well.  

Make Them Vegan 

Simply swap out the egg for a vegan replacement. A great option is a chia or flax egg as they are simple and easy to make.
