  • 2.5 cups all purpose gluten free flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil heated up first
  • 1/2 cup organic coconut palm sugar or regular sugar
  • 1 cup Grandma's molasses
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a stand mixer, combine the baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, coconut oil, sugar, molasses and egg until it's smooth.
  2. Alternate adding the flour and hot water until it's well mixed. It will be smooth and thick and that's a good thing.
  3. Pour it into a 9x9 square baking dish.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. If you want to dust the top like we did, cut a small shape out of your choosing in paper and place it on top of a piece of gingerbread.
  6. Get a sifter and add some powdered sugar to it.
  7. Lightly tap the side of the sifter over the gingerbread piece until the top is evenly covered in a light dusting of powdered sugar.
  8. Carefully remove the paper shape and Enjoy!
