Guess what? It’s gingerbread season. That’s right – we’re already well into December, and at the D-D household, that means the Christmas tree is already up (and lit! double bonus points!), the stockings are hung (by the chimney, and with somewhat care), and I’m going bananas trying to bake every single holiday pastry I can think of. And, when Sebastian came home with the sweetest cookie cutter of all time, I wasted exactly no time in researching and throwing together some vegan gingerbread men that were so delicious that my eyes rolled back in my head a little bit.
These little guys require very little prep and, if you’re already into vegan baking, you probably already have all of the ingredients sitting in your pantry right now. Plus, they only bake for 8 minutes, which means the potential for instant gratification is high.
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again – I just love this time of year, and I particularly love the sweet treats that accompany a peppermint mocha and your favorite Christmas music. So, go forth and enjoy these deliciously vegan gingerbread men in front of the nearest fireplace, and let’s get this season going! Recipe’s after the jump :)
