Gluten free and refined sugar free ginger bread cookies for some last-minute Christmas baking

SO, the Christmas has finally begun. The tree has been decorated, the Christmas presents distributed (I’ve even opened some already), I’ve totally lost the feeling of what weekday it is, there is just one door in the advent calendar left (we celebrate Christmas on the 24th), the presents have been put under the tree, I’ve started making the dessert and yesterday my lovely grandmother arrived. Wonderful! Now we just need some snow…

SÅ er julen for alvor skudt i gang. Juletræet er kommet op, julegaverne er blevet udvekslet (jeg har endda åbnet nogle enkelte (; ), jeg har mistet følelsen af hvilken ugedag det er, der er en låge tilbage på kalenderen, vi har lagt gaverne under træet, jeg har påbegyndt risalamanden og igår kom min mormor hele den lange vej fra Jylland. Hvor er det bare skønt. Nu mangler vi bare sneen.

I know you usually post Christmas recipes long before Christmas, but unfortunately I haven’t had the time due to the project I’ve been making. But then I thought: A lot of people doesn’t bake until the day before Christmas. Just yesterday I met with some friends to say Merry Christmas and give them their presents (which is why I have already opened some). One of them had just been at a family meeting where they had been making Christmas sweets and the other called 5 minutes before to say she just needed another 10 minutes since she had to put some cookies in the oven. And then there is me who got up early today and started baking cookies.

Jeg ved godt at man normalt poster opskrifter på julekager i god tid før jul, men jeg har simpelthen ikke haft tid til det pga. SRP. Men så var det jeg tænkte: Der er mange, der først bager dagen før jul, er der ikke? Så sent som igår mødtes jeg med nogle af mine veninder for at udveksle gaver og ønske hinanden god jul. Den ene kom direkte fra familie-hygge-konfekt-lavning og den anden ringede fem minutter inden vi skulle mødes for at meddele at hun altså lige skulle have tid til at putte en bageplade i ovnen. Og så er der mig, der stod op i morges og gik i gang med disse skønne kager.

I like experimenting with healthy cookies. Last year I posted this recipe on healthy vanilla wreaths (a Danish Christmas cookie), which were a little healthier than the usual kind. So this year I thought I’d make some which were completely healthy. Well in short I ended up with some pretty hard cookies which almost destroyed the machine you use in order to make them – whoops (: So this year these cookies are on the menu. They taste wonderful!

Jeg elsker at eksperimentere med sundere julekager. Sidste år postede jeg disse lækre vaniljekranse, der var en anelse sundere end de sædvanlige. Så i år tænkte jeg, at nu var tiden moden for nogle 100% sunde vaniljekranse. Well kort fortalt endte det med nogle hårde kager, der halvt ødelagde maskinen – upse dasse (: Så i stedet blev det til disse ingefær kager, der er fri for raffineret sukker og glutenfrie. De smager skønt!
