Einkorn Gingerbread Cookies

Thanksgiving is gone and Christmas is upon us. That means lots of baking in our house. One of our favorite things to make is gingerbread cookies. This year my 2 year old got to help... oh what a floury mess. But oh so much fun! I love making Christmas memories with my kiddos.

These gingerbread cookies are soft and chewy. They contain very little fat and no processed sugar. And they are made with Young Living's Einkorn flour. I have been doing a lot of baking with Einkorn flour. Einkorn is the original "staff-of-life" grain, which dates back to the beginning of time. When compared to the modern, highly modified wheat of today, einkorn's un-hybridized genetics and low gluten levels make it more compatible with our bodies and it's easier to digest.

Nutrients are also more abundant in einkorn grain than in modern wheat. Einkorn offers:

  • higher protein, phosphorus, potassium and vitamin B6
  • two times more vitamin A
  • four times more beta-carotene and lutein
  • five times more riboflavin
Einkorn flour is highly nutritious! I encourage you to give it a try!! You won't go back to using anything else.

Einkorn Gingerbread Cookies


  • 4 cups Young Living Einkorn Flour (Get started with Young Living HERE)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder (Find HERE)
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda (Find HERE)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp Maple Syrup (Find HERE)
  • 1/4 cup blackstrap molasses (Find HERE)
  • 4 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract (Find HERE)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp ginger (Find HERE)
  • 1 Tbsp saigon cinnamon (Find HERE)
  • 1/2 tsp clove (Find HERE)
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg (Find HERE)

  1. Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl. I always use my KitchenAid Mixer
  2. Add the wet ingredients to the dry.
  3. Mix well to form the dough.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. I just left the dough in my KitchenAid bowl and placed in the fridge.
  5. Preheat oven to 350.
  6. After 2 hours, remove dough from fridge.
  7. Sprinkle some Einkorn flour on your counter surface. Roll the dough until about 1/4 inch thick. 
  8. Use a gingerbread man cookie cut out and place on a lined baking sheet. 
  9. Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Let sit to cool before removing from baking sheet.
  10. Cool completely before decorating.


I actually like the cookies with nothing on them. But my oldest wanted some icing on a couple cookies. 

  • organic powdered sugar
  • grass-fed butter, melted
  • organic milk
  • vanilla extract

  • Pour powdered sugar into a bowl and add equal parts milk and butter until you reach desired consistency. Then add vanilla extract to flavor preference.


Many Blessings,
