  • 1/4 cup soya milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup demerara sugar
  • 1/2 cup golden syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp ginger powder


  • Heat the soya milk in a microwave until lukewarm - this is to help the sugar dissolve. Then, mix all your wet ingredients before adding in all the dry ingredients. Mix until combined.
  • Scoop all of the dough out onto some cling film and place in the freezer for a couple of hours, or overnight. 
  • Preheat the oven to 170C (gas mark 4).
  • Take the dough out of the freezer. If it feels really hard, it may need a few minutes to soften. Roll it out to about a quarter of an inch, then using a cookie cutter, cut out little gingerbread men and transfer them onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. 
  • Bake each tray for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before icing.
