Here's a recipe for paleo gingerbread that can be used to make bars or soft cookies. It uses a lot of coconut flour so it is grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and soy-free.
Whether you want to make a special treat for Christmas or just to celebrate a snow day in January, there's nothing like warm gingerbread.
But how can I have it if I can't eat wheat?
I was delighted to come up with this recipe!
The photo shows bars made in a square dish because I thought it was going to be like cake, but the consistency is a little more solid and chewy. I would decribe it more as a cake-like cookie.
The next time I make it, I will treat it more like drop cookies and bake spoonfuls on a cookie sheet.

You can use melted butter instead of the coconut oil if you don't need the recipe to be dairy-free, and you see the choice of milks listed.
If you have any leftover, they will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days if you put them in a container with a lid. They stay nice and moist, so I keep thinking there's pumpkin in them, but there's not.
