Gingerbread House - Recipe

A Beautiful Gluten-Free Gingerbread House

Gingerbread is one of the classic tastes of Christmas. This is a great recipe to make with children and it makes a wonderful centrepiece!

We decorated our house with spices, nuts and butter cream. You can adapt decorations to your own preferences and use sweeties, freeze dried fruit, icing and seeds!

This recipe is made without cane sugar, and is also gluten-free.

Other Ingredients

  • 2 Eggs
  • 250g butter


Preheat your oven to 175°c. This recipe makes one medium sized Gingerbread house.

1) Cream together the Coconut Sugar and butter. Add the egg and agave syrup and mix well.

2) Mix the dry ingredients together and add to the mixture. Knead until smooth. Wrap mixture in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.

3) Roll Mixture out to a desired thickness and cut the house shapes out with your chosen cutters. We used Lakeland cookie cutters.

4) Place your cookie shapes on a baking tray and cook for around 7 minutes until golden brown. Cool on wire rack and then assemble!

5) Decorate according to your own preference and display proudly for everyone to see! One handy tip is to use raspberry powder as a natural food colouring for the red bits, and Sukrin Icing Sugar Substitute to make the snow.
