The holiday season is in full swing which means holiday baking has also begun. I love baking for the holidays but since following a primarily paleo-style diet for many years now I am always looking for healthy alternatives to holiday sweet treats this time of year.
I have developed a homemade Paleo Gingerbread Spice Mix recipe. This mix makes all of your baking taste like the holidays and adds the most delicious flavor to my Paleo Hot Chocolate recipe, or a hot cup of coffee or tea.
When it comes to holiday baking, I find it difficult to find spice mixes that aren’t full of fillers. Even during the holidays, I try to keep my diet as clean as possible which means always looking at the labels on the back of spice jars as these can have hidden ingredients like corn, sugar, soy, and even artificial flavors. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the flavors of the holidays.
This homemade Paleo gingerbread spice mix is to die for. It has all the flavors you want in a holiday spice blend with a subtle hint of vanilla for a unique twist on the traditional gingerbread mix.
I love adding this to homemade paleo style holiday cookies (recipe to follow next week), paleo hot chocolate, and sprinkled in my optimal reset detox shakes.
This spice mix also makes an adorable gift. You can whip up a big batch, pour it into a glass jar with a ribbon and give it to your loved ones who are trying to eat a little healthier this year.
