2 cups whole wheat flour 1⁄4 cup water 1⁄2 cup coconut oil 1⁄2 cup sugar

1 1⁄2-2 tbsp baking powder 1 tbsp cinnamon 2 tbsp grated ginger 1⁄2 tbsp cloves

1⁄2 tbsp vanilla


  • Put the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger and cloves into a large bowl and put it to the side.

  • Take another bowl and put the coconut oil and sugar together.

  • Mix it for about 2 minutes. Add the water and the vanilla and mix everything for 1 more minute.

  • After this, add flour mixture little by little until you get a nice dough.

  • Wrap it in plastic wrap and put it into the fridge for 2-3 hours.

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F and roll the dough onto parchment paper until it is 1⁄4'' thick.

  • Use cookie cutters with the shape of your choice and cut out the dough until it’s all used up.

  • Bake the gingerbread cookies for 9-10 minutes until they’re lightly browned.

  • Put them aside until they’re completely cooled down before you start decorating them.
