Chocolate Gingerbread recipe

Chocolate Gingerbreadby Kate from Little People Big Tummies

It’s always nice to have some little snacks available for the kids after school or to have for lunch box fillers. This ginger bread is low in sugar and because you have made it with your own hands you know what is in it.

This isn’t just limited to the kids, these are great for adults too. I suggest making these a little larger, then warm them up and serve with some vanilla ice cream – yum!

2.5 cups of plain flour
Pinch of bicarb soda
2 eggs
3/4 cup of golden syrup
Teaspoon cinnamon
Tablespoon coconut butter
2 teaspoon crushed ginger
Block of dark chocolate for melting


1. Pre-heat oven on 180

2. Place flour,cinnamon and bicarb in a bowl. Melt the coconut butter and golden syrup with the ginger in the microwave. Add to the flour, mix together then add the eggs. Knead together with your hands. Set aside and let the dough rest for 10 mins. Roll out the dough and use a cookie cutter to cut out whatever shape you want. Place on a lined tray and cook for 10-12 mins

3. Once they are cooled, melt some dark chocolate then dip half the ginger bread in the chocolate and set aside to harden.

4. Decorate how you like.

About Kate: I try to do new and interesting things for the kid’s school lunches as I was sick of them coming home with their lunch boxes untouched. I know by talking to other parents I am not alone, which is why I started Little People, Big Tummies . My girls and I often cook together as I think it’s a great way to get them interested in healthy eating and trying new things. Not to mention teaching them how to cook which is a great skill to have.
