Makes about 20

  • 125g Cashews (plus more for decorating)
  • 6 Dates
  • 1 Egg
  • 100g Whole Wheat Flour (plus more for dusting)
  • 1tsp Cinnamon
  • 1tsp Ginger
  • ½ tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2tsp Coconut oil
  • Cacao nibs (for decorating)


  • Pre heat the oven to 180˚c.
  • Pour hot water over the cashew nuts and leave to soak for 10-15mins. Strain off the water and blend the nuts until a powder forms.
  • Finely chop the dates and add them to the cashews and blend again until a chunky dough forms.
  • Transfer the dough to a large bowl and stir in an egg until smooth.
  • In another bowl mix together the flour, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
  • Then slowly mix in all the dry ingredients in to the large bowl with the sticky cashew dough. Keep stirring until it forms together in a ball.
  • Dust the kitchen counter in flour and knead the dough until no longer sticky.
  • Add a little more flour to the work surface and roll out the dough until around ½ cm thick.
  • Cut out your little ginger bread men and place them on an oiled sheet of parchment paper.
  • Squash together the remaining cut-offs and roll out the dough again and cut out more gingerbread men! Repeat until all the dough has been used.
  • Decorate them as you wish. I used cacao nibs (for eyes) and cashew nuts (for smiles).
  • Bake in the oven for 10-15mins.
  • Allow to cool on a wire rack and then munch away!
