Ingredients:
5oz Sorghum Flour
5oz Ground Almonds
1/2 Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
1/2 Tsp Baking Powder
2 Tsp All Spice
2 Tsp Nutmeg
1 1/2 Minced Ginger
4oz Pure Spread
4oz Light Brown Unrefined Sugar 
3 Tsp Ground Chia Seeds
6 Tsp Hot Water
1 Tbls Arrowroot Powder
1 Tsp Xanthan Gum
1/2oz Muscovado Unrefined Sugar (Optional)



Grind your chia seeds in your high speed blender.


Add your 6 Tsp water and let the seeds soak up the water whist you measure out the rest of the ingredients.




In a bowl mix your baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, spices, flour, ground almonds and light brown sugar together.



Next combine your mucovado (optional), chia seeds slurry, pure spread and minced ginger to your flour mix.


Now you have your dough cover the bowl with cling film and put it into the fridge for an hour.





You can now roll out your dough on to a piece of baking paper so that is easier to transfer to your baking tray otherwise your gingerbread will stick to your tray.


Set your oven to Gas Mark 5.

Put your tray full of your gingerbread men into the oven for 7-10 minutes depending on the size of your gingerbread men.

The big man will need 10-12 minutes.






The little men will only need 7-10 minutes.





Take them out, peel the men off of the paper and leave to cool.

Once hard you can decorate and hang them on your Christmas tree.
