Vegan gingerbread cookies


  • 3 tbsp dairy-free milk , we used oat milk
  • pinch lemon zest
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 4 tbsp self-raising flour
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • pinch bicarbonate of soda
  • 4 fresh or frozen raspberries

To serve

  • coconut cream or dairy-free ice cream


  • STEP 1

Put the milk in a microwave-safe mug, add the lemon zest and juice and leave to sit for 2-3 mins. It should start to look a bit grainy, as if it has split. Stir in the sunflower oil, flour, sugar and bicarbonate of soda. Mix really well with a fork until smooth.
