They took a bit of playing with to get the texture just right, but the whole family has approved this recipe so it's ready to be approved by our readers now. We really hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

I found sweet potato flour in a Chinese Supermarket, which was nice and convenient, but I am trialling making my own and will let you know how I get on very soon.

These gluten free cookies are absolutely to die for - they have a slight crunch combined with the softness of proper gingerbread. A real, but clean, treat for those on a paleo diet looking for an occasional treat that's not a total cheat, and perfect for those following a gluten free diet who just don't care so long as there's no gluten involved!

  1. Preheat the oven to 180° C/350° F/gas mark 4.
  2. Melt the coconut oil in the oven as it warms (try not to spill it all over the bottom of the oven when removing it, it makes a big mess!)

  4. Stir in the flax powder and ground ginger.
  5. Chop the stem ginger into small pieces and stir into the flour mixture
  6. In a separate bowl whisk the coconut oil, vanilla extract, palm sugar, honey and egg until thoroughly combined.
  7. Add the liquid to the flour and beat until mixed.
  8. Leave to stand for 5 - 10 minutes to allow the flours to fully take up the liquid.
  9. Spoon onto a greased baking sheet or onto baking parchment on a baking sheet.
  10. Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until they start to turn slightly golden.
  11. Cool and enjoy these delicious gingerbread cookies!
