Gingerbread Square Recipe + Live Q&A + Giveaway!

Gingerbread Square Recipe + Live Q&A + Giveaway!
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

Sweetened by banana, blackstrap molasses, and agave, this healthy gingerbread from Allyson Kramer tastes just as rich and spicy as the traditional version.

You may know Allyson from such recipes as her chocolate squash custard, or drenched pad thai salad, or from previous live hangouts about gluten-free cooking and her history with celiac disease.

This recipe comes from Allyson’s newest cookbook, Sweet Eats For All, available now on Amazon – would make a lovely Christmas gift, I think. You can also enter to win a free copy below!

I am thrilled to be hosting Allyson for a live q&a session, and will be getting lots of answers about gluten-free vegan baking techniques for you! That’s her gorgeous photo up there, too, both the book cover and the gingerbread squares on the right.
