No I have not started to decorate or listen to Christmas music, I have a pretty hard core rule for myself to wait until right after thanksgiving. But you do you boo boo. But! what I haveeeee been doing is enjoying a bunch of holiday lattes and food so that I can share some dope recipes with y’all! Like this one. Proud creator of these babies.

Gingerbread ‘Orero’ Cookies:
Recipe by The Daily Kale
1 1/2 cups almond flour
2 tsp ginger
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
4 tbsp maple syrup (@choczero)
1-2 tbsp almond milk
Egg Nog Filling:
4 tbsp softened butter (vegan or reg.)
1/4 cup powdered sugar (@lakanto)
2 tbsp tapioca flour (@bobsredmill)
2 tbsp egg nog creamer (@nutpods)
Pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt
In a bowl stir together all of the dry ingredients for the cookie. In a small separate bowl stir together the wet ingredients for the cookie.
Combine the two together and stir. Use your hands to mold together the dough. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.
For the filling place the flour and sugar together and stir. Then add in the butter and creamer and whisk together until smooth and creamy. *This hardens up into a paste just by refrigerating for 10 minutes.
Bake cookies at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
Let them cool completely before putting the filling in between. Store in refrigerator so they will stay held together. Enjoy !
*I tagged brands that I used to keep these sugar free, but you can of course substitute for real powdered sugar and maple syrup. Also you can use regular egg nog if you prefer, I just love the nutpods creamer :)
