Gluten Free Chocolate Gingerbread

CHOCOLATE GINGERBREAD.

Yep, nothing can really get better than chocolate gingerbread at Christmas.

I made this bread on a bit of a whim and as I’ve had the worst cold this week, I fully expected it not to turn out that great. But boy was I wrong! This is the most decadent tasting bread – so chocolatey and rich with a lovely hint of spice from the ginger. It’s such a simple recipe – just add everything to a food processor, pour into your loaf tin and bake for 40mins.

I’ve added crystallised ginger on top which is completely optional. If you want even more of a ginger kick you could also incorporate it into the mixture before it goes in the oven. I love having gingerbread as an afternoon snack, or even for a decadent breakfast with some coconut yoghurt and chopped pecans – yum!

I hope you LOVE this recipe! It’s

Super Chocolatey

INGREDIENTS

2 cups ground almonds (240g)
1/2 cup GF oat flour (60g)
1 cup coconut sugar (150g)
3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
3 eggs
2 tbsp molasses/black treacle
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 tbsp almond milk

RECIPE

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/365F/gas mark 4 and line a loaf tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. Start by adding all the dry ingredients to a food processor (ground almonds to cinnamon) and process until everything has broken down and fully mixed
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients (eggs, molasses, coconut oil and milk). Next, pour the wet ingredients into the food processor and gently process until everything is fully combined.
  4. Pour the mixture into your loaf tin, making sure it’s an even layer.
  5. Bake in the oven for 40-45mins – once a knife comes out clean it’s good to take out.
  6. I drizzled my with date nectar and chopped crystallised ginger, but that’s completely optional!
