  • 175g Organic Coconut Palm Sugar
  • 85g Biona Organic Agave Light Syrup
  • 100g Biona Organic Cocomega Coconut Spread
  • 350g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons aquafaba (liquid from tinned chickpeas)
  • Ready-made writing icing



Melt the coconut sugar, agave syrup and coconut spread in a saucepan, then boil for 1-2 mins (making sure a responsible adult takes charge). Leave to cool for about 10 mins.


Tip the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spices into a large bowl. Add the warm syrup mixture and the aquafaba.


Stir everything together, then gently knead in the bowl until smooth and streak-free. The dough will firm up once cooled.


Wrap in cling film and chill for at least 30 mins.


Remove the dough from the fridge, leave at room temperature until softened. 6. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6 and line two baking trays with baking parchment.


Print out our Little Foodies templates from our website to make the shapes.


Roll out the dough to the thickness of a £1 coin, then cut around the printed stencils with a knife (make sure an adult does this!).


Re-roll the excess dough and keep cutting until it’s all used up.
