Lotus German Gingerbread

Serves: 10


  • 2 tbsp Lotus Organic Linseed Meal
  • 1 cup Lotus Organic Millet Flour
  • 1 cup Lotus Organic Quinoa Flour
  • 1/4 cup Lotus Potato Flour
  • 1 tsp Lotus Gluten Free Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp Lotus Fine Sea Salt
  • 1 cup Lotus Organic Rapadura Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Lotus Organic Blackstrap Molasses
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 6 tbsp warm water
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce


Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a medium sized baking dish with parchment paper. In a small bowl, stir together the linseed and warm water until the mixture is thick and creamy. Set aside for at least 10 minutes. Sift the dry ingredients (except the sugar) into a large mixing bowl. In another mixing bowl, combine the sugar, molasses, coconut oil, apple sauce, and linseed mixture; whisk until well blended. Add to the dry ingredients to the wet and blend further. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 35 minutes or until set in the middle (when checked with a skewer, it should come out clean). Leave to cool in the pan then turn out and slice. Serve buttered with your choice of spread.
