Chewy gingerbread bunnies recipe

I must be really in the Easter spirit because here’s another Easter-themed recipe! I think that these turned out pretty cute and no doubt kids will have loads of fun decorating them. I love soft, chewy biscuits. In fact, I’ll often leave biscuits open a day or so until they have this texture before I eat them. Is that weird? Haha. But with these biscuits, they’re soft and chewy as soon as they come out the oven!


Serves: ≈ 20 biscuits


  • 280g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • pinch of salt
  • 120g coconut sugar
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 110ml plant-based milk, plus extra to glaze (I used almond milk)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder and ginger into a large bowl and mix together.
  3. Stir in the salt, sugar, maple syrup and milk. Mould together with your hand to form a dough.
  4. Transfer the dough onto lightly floured parchment paper and roll out to 0.5cm thick. (I generally just spread the dough out with my fingers to save on washing a rolling-pin.)
  5. Use your cookie cutter to cut the dough into shapes.
  6. Transfer the cookies and parchment paper on to a baking sheet and glaze with milk.
  7. Cook in the oven for 12-15 minutes until they start to brown at the edges but are still spongy in the middle.
