Vegan German Gingerbread so simple and delicious

Christmas markets could really offering more vegan sweets such as gingerbread. They are done so fast and you really do not need anything fancy. What you need as an egg substitute is Aquafaba. We, for example, always have something in the house because we like to eat chickpeas. I know calling its own recipes the best or the juiciest is inappropriate. But I have not eaten so good gingerbread for a long time and also the omnivore relatives find these vegan Elisenlebkuchen super super yummy. If that does not prove that these vegan german gingerbread are the hit ?!

My vegan german gingerbread are not a sticky sugary substance

I am not sure if I have already told you, but I always use less sweetener than an original recipe suggests. Mostly more sugar is included in recipes than it has to be. And so it is with the gingerbread. For me, I simply count down the sweetener. Simply sum the dry ingredients without sugar. For the vegan german gingerbread this would be the hazelnuts and almonds and I calculate between 20% -25% of sugar. For me most recipes are too sweet and I cannot eat them good. With this formal I have found exactly the right sweeteness for me and my family.

What else do you need for the vegan german gingerbread?

You do not need much more ingredients than the original gingerbread. Here is a brief overview of what ingredients are included

  • Candied lemon and orange: Some do not like these, but I think they make the taste of the gingerbread simply. I mash them with nuts, for example. Simply add the ground nuts with the candied lemon and orange to a blender and mix well.
  • Orange juice or rum: if you want to make an alcohol-free version of the Elisenlebkuchen, you simply take orange juice instead of rum. We usually take orange juice. Our kids love the gingerbread
  • Hazelnuts and almonds: the main ingredient for gingerbread
  • Gingerbread spice: gingerbread without gingerbread spice?! It is not working
  • baking powder
  • Aquafaba, I use this as an egg substitute. I love Aquafaba and it is so versatile
  • Sweetening alternative: e.g. Coconut sugar, raw cane sugar
  • Dark chocolate: to coat the vegan german gingerbread
