Matcha Gingerbread

Matcha Gingerbread

As the festive season approaches, the aroma of gingerbread starts to fill the air. But this year, we're adding a matcha twist to this classic treat! Our Matcha Gingerbread recipe is not only delicious but also refined sugar-free, making it a guilt-free indulgence for your holiday celebrations.

Makes: 25 gingerbreads | Preparation Time: 40 minutes


  • 50g dates
  • 70ml water
  • 220g almonds, ground
  • 50g walnuts, chopped
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp gingerbread spice
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 30ml freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 100g Matcha chocolate
  • Walnut halves for decoration


  1. Date Paste: Blend the dates with 70ml of water in a mixer to create a smooth date paste. If your blender isn't high-performance, soak the dates in some water for 20 minutes beforehand to soften them.

  2. Preparation: While the dates are soaking, chop the walnuts and squeeze the orange juice.

  3. Dough Formation: In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients. Use a spoon to mix everything into a sticky dough. Take about 1 tablespoon of the mixture, roll it into balls, and then flatten them to form your gingerbreads.

  4. Freezing: Place the gingerbread shapes on a plate lined with parchment paper and freeze for about 20 minutes.

  5. Chocolate Coating: While the gingerbreads are in the freezer, gently melt the Matcha chocolate.

  6. Decoration: Once the gingerbreads are firm, coat them with the melted Matcha chocolate and garnish with walnut halves or almonds.

  7. Final Touch: Refrigerate the gingerbreads briefly once more before serving.

Enjoy these Matcha Gingerbreads with a warm cup of tea or as a festive snack. They are a wonderful way to enjoy the holiday flavors without the added guilt of refined sugars. Happy baking and happy holidays! 🍵🎄🍪
