Paleo gingerbread loaf is the perfect comfort food during the holidays. Nothing smells more like Christmas. And this is like 10 times easier than making gingerbread cookies. You’ll love the texture and taste too!
Have I mentioned before that I love Gingerbread or ginger cookies? I probably did (1 or 10 times) when I posted my soft Paleo gingersnaps recipe, but let me reiterate for a moment or two…I LOVE gingerbread. I love the touch of spice that comes with each bite, the way it makes my house smell, and how it reminds me of Christmas time. It’s a new-found love. I don’t remember eating it as a kid, but I am pretty sure I wouldn’t have been a huge fan, but my mature adult tastebuds LOVE it :)!*Please note that most of the links on this page are affiliate links.

Not only does this Paleo gingerbread recipe have the same taste and texture as traditional gingerbread, but it is also gluten-free, grain-free, and Paleo-friendly. It is made with high-fiber coconut flour, nutrient-dense cashew butter, and all the ginger and spices that makes gingerbread taste insanely delicious! It is also super-simple to make. One mixing bowl and you are good to go – I love recipes like that!
Here are some tips and tricks to make this recipe even better:
- I made mini loaves with this recipe, but it could be used to make muffins as well. If you want a large loaf, double the recipe.
- If you don’t have cashew butter, you can soak 1 cup of raw cashews for 1 hour in warm water. Discard the water before using the cashews and blend all of the ingredients in a blender until a smooth batter forms.
- I’m sorry, but there is no substitute for coconut flour. People always ask, but it’s a very unique Paleo flour and absorbs liquid like crazy and is like nothing else.
- You could sub the arrowroot powder with cornstarch, but then it wouldn’t be Paleo.
- You could make a flax egg instead of a normal egg and it should work fine as a an egg substitute. I haven’t tried it myself in this recipe, but really it should be fine. I’ve done it with other several other recipes with good results.
- If you don’t have a mini loaf pan, you can use a muffin tin and decrease the baking time (makes approx. 8 muffins).
I would love to know if you try this recipe and if you like it and – especially if you like the smell! Please comment below and let me know how it went!
