Healthy Christmas Gingerbread With Whipped Coconut Cream & Berries

The quintessential Christmastime treat, gingerbread fills the air with scents of the silly season. This healthy version evokes a traditional-style loaf using ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg spices for a classic taste you’ll love. Top with whipped coconut cream, fresh berries and squares of your favourite Loving Earth chocolate and you’ll be in Christmas dessert heaven. 




  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees celsius and lightly grease and line a loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients including flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt. Whisk together and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the molasses, coconut oil, coconut nectar, applesauce and coconut/almond milk. Whisk altogether.
  4. Make a small well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet molasses mixture.    
  5. Gently fold together and combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until just combined. Make sure not to over-mix at this point.
  6. Once everything has combined, pour the batter into the prepared baking tin and bake in the oven for 60 minutes.
  7. Allow cooling for approximately 10 minutes and then transferring to a cooling rack.
  8. Once the cake has completely cooled, decorate with coconut whipped cream (made with canned coconut cream and coconut nectar), berries of choice and chocolate! Slice and serve.
