Let the Holiday season begin
The popular Dutch pepernoten with a tropical twist. If you haven't tasted pepernoten yet go make them! Everybody in Holland eat these little gingerbread cookies around the Holidays and especially around the 5th of December when Sinterklaas comes to Holland. The old fashioned pepernoten are made with butter and refined sugar. Wanna make them a little healthier? Look no further! We have added grated coconut grater, just for the fun. You can also omit it and replace it with, for example, oatmeal or tiger nut flour. Make sure you use fresh dates that are very soft. Then you can knead them most easily through the dough. Otherwise use a blender or food processor.
These pepernoten are gluten-free, vegan and made without refined sugars. And super tasty they are!
Tip: dip them in (pure) chocolate for chocolate ones…
