Bake yourself a healthy Christmas traditional treat!

Seasonal foods for good year-round activity of the brain

If you can't imagine the winter holidays without gingerbread cookies – but you also can’t imagine yourself wearing anything else but a tight and flattering dress for New Year's party – you must know there is a way to have your cake and eat it too. The healthy way and guilt free, with this gingerbread recipe. All the traditional flavor included.

  • 200 grams spelt flour – has more fiber and more nutrients than the regular wheat flour. Nourishes you better and keeps you full for longer!
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon;
  • 2 tsp grated ginger (peeled);
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg;
  • 1 tsp ground clove;
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric;
  • ground pepper to taste;
  • ¼ tsp baking soda;
  • 50 g butter (melted);
  • 2 tbsp milk (if you’re looking for the lightest in calories, then almond milk it is);
  • 100 g maple syrup – carries way less calories than sugar, but more minerals and vitamins;
  • a pinch of salt.
  1. Preheat the oven at 150°C.
  2. Combine the `dry` ingredients in a bowl: flour, spices, baking soda, salt.
  3. Using a blender, mix well the `wet ingredients`: melted butter, milk, maple syrup.
  4. Put the wet and the dry together and mix them well until you get a dough that doesn’t stick to your fingers. Add a little bit of flour if it’s too wet, or a few drops of milk if it should be too dry.
  5. Wrap the dough in plastic foil and refrigerate it for 30-60 minutes.
  6. Take the dough out of the fridge, place it between two pieces of baking paper and roll it out until it reaches 2-3 millimeters thickness.
  7. Cut biscuits out of it using cookie shapes and place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  8. Bake for 10 minute or until golden.
  9. Take the tray out of the oven and leave the biscuits on it until completely cooled.
  10. AND, MAYBE, THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP OF ALL: impress your loved ones with these delicious and healthy gingerbread treats! That is, enjoy the flavor of the biscuits, but also the scent of satisfaction!

Merry Christmas from the Stradale team and may we all meet again healthier, happier, and more rested after the holidays!
