I usually buy a gingerbread house kit at Costco every year. Reason #1: simplicity (it’s already “glued” together and all we have to do is decorate! It’s a lot like THIS one). Reason #2: price. (For $9.99, and an evening of fun, how could you go wrong??)
But one thing I can’t stand is that it’s awful for you. The list of ingredients is scary. Of course, a lot of that is the candy decorations. But at any rate, I thought it would be sa-weet if I could come up with my own gingerbread house recipe that was grain free. So, that’s just what I did.
After a morning spent covered in a sticky mess and a couple different batches baked in the oven, perfection.
Friends, this gingerbread house is a definite new tradition for us!
The key to success? THIS gingerbread house mold!
Seriously, I am no Pinterest pro. I’ve had so many Pinterest fails, it’s not even funny. But that gingerbread house mold is da bomb diggety. My kids thought I was a rock star after this. And you pretty much can’t mess up your gingerbread house. I’m all over that.
So, you’re probably dying to see how to make this gem, right? Well, without further adieu, here is my grain free gingerbread house recipe!
