Notes

Substitutions for this healthy gingerbread recipe:
  • Oil: Olive oil or avocado oil can be replaced for the coconut oil.
  • Gluten Free / Flour: I also tried this recipe with Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Oat Flour and it came out great
  • Milk: You can use any kind of milk, dairy or non dairy in this recipe
  • Sweetener: You can substitute honey for maple syrup
  • Glaze: I prefer my gingerbread without a glaze, but you could add one to this! If you want to make a glaze, I recommend the following:  1/4 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 coconut milk powder, 1/4 cup almond milk
  • Muffins: I haven't tried turning this bread into muffins, but we do have a Healthy Gingerbread Muffins recipe on our site.
  • WW Freestyle Note: Points calculated using blackstrap molasses
