Gingerbread always reminds me of Christmas but that certainly doesn’t mean these gems are a “Christmas only” treat… they are nice anytime of the year!
¼ cup maple syrup
2/3 cup molasses
1/3 cup olive oil
1 ½ cups soy milk (you can use almond or rice milk in place of soy)
1 ½ cups spelt flour
2/3 cup brown rice flour
¼ tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsps baking powder
1 tbsp. cinnamon
2 tsps. ginger
¼ tsp. ground cloves
Blend maple syrup, molasses, oil, and soy milk (or a substitute of your choice). Sift together dry ingredients. Form a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Mix in eggs.
Pour into greased 9 inch square pan.
Bake at 375 degree oven for 45 mins. or until firm to the touch.
