Naturally gluten free, buckwheat makes fab gingerbread, with it's slight bitterness, it pairs well with the ginger and golden syrup making a delicious tasting and crunchy biscuit. We've also made this dairy free and vegan and mini so you can get away with eating a few extra! You could even add some icing for a face and buttons.

1. Melt together soya spread, sugar and golden syrup, stirring the whole time.

4. Slowly stir in the melted mix, mix until you get a nice stiff ball that you can easily handle.

5. Let the dough cool a bit, but not until cold.

6. Roll out and use a small gingerbread man cutter (should get about 19 if you keep rerolling using all the dough up).

7. Bake in oven on gas mark 6 for 10 mins.
