Number of Servings: 20


    1 cup all-purpose white flour
    3/4 cup whole wheat flour
    1/4 tsp ground allspice
    1/4 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/4 tsp ground cloves
    1/4 tsp ground ginger
    1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
    1/8 tsp salt substitute
    1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar
    1/4 cup dark molasses
    1/4 cup sugar-free maple-flavored syrup
    2 tbsp light vanilla yogurt
    2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce


1. Combine flours, allspice, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and salt well in a medium bowl.

2. In a large bowl, use a wooden spoon to beat molasses, syrup, Splenda brown sugar, applesauce, and yogurt until well blended.

3. Pour the dry ingredients into the larger bowl and mix until a stiff dough forms.

4. Press the dough into a disc, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate 30 minutes.

5. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray 2 cookie sheets with non-stick spray.

6. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch gingerbread man cookie cutter, cut out cookies. Gather the dough scraps, re-roll, and keep making gingerbread men until all dough is used up.

7. Use a spatula to transfer cookies to cookie sheets, placing them 1-inch apart.

8. Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until golden brown, rotating sheets halfway through to ensure even baking. Remove to wire racks and let cool completely.

Makes 18-20 gingerbread men.

  • Very Good

    I would definitely make again with the following adjustments. I doubled the allspice, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg because of the comment about blandness. These were not bland with double spices. I rolled into balls, flattened and dipped in sugar substitute. Very delicious and chewy! - 12/21/08

    I made these and they were very bland and very chewy. Not a very good gingerbread recipe. I'd rather go full calories if this is the result (sorry!). - 12/10/07

    Don't know that I've ever tried gingerbread cookies before, so maybe they're just not my cup of tea. These were chewy and although they smelled strongly, didn't have as much flavor. Again, disclaimer that I haven't tried gingerbread in my memory. My 6-year-old liked them. - 12/21/08
