Vegan Gingerbread Bears with Chocolate Icing

I have to admit, I'm definitely not a professional baker when it comes to decorating Christmas biscuits 😊 but it's not hard to tell from the pictures. I can tell you though that the cookies are really delicious! I combined these vegan Gingerbread Bears with a chocolate icing - tastes delicious! Unfortunately, they turned out a bit too thick for me, as I didn't consider that they would rise a bit in the oven with the baking powder. So, it's better to roll out the dough a little thinner. Unfortunately, I didn't have any bigger moulds, so I had to use baby bears. But again - it's all in the taste, right?


For a medium sized biscuit tin

140g vegan butter

100g sugar

1 egg substitute

1 lemon (zest)

1 pinch of salt

300g flour

1 tbsp soy milk (or other vegetable alternative)

3 tsp gingerbread spice

½ packet baking powder

100g dark chocolate

If desired, some icing sugar, water and food colouring for the decoration


  1. Mix the butter, sugar, egg replacerand salt to a mixture.
  2. Grate the zest of one lemon and addto the mixture together with the flour, gingerbread spice and baking powder.Mix well and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Roll out the dough to a thickness ofapprox. 3mm and cut out with gingerbread moulds.
  4. Bake the biscuits in a preheatedoven at 200°C for 8-10min. Remove and leave to cool.
  5. In the meantime, melt the chocolateover a hot water bath and decorate the biscuits with it. Leave the biscuits tocool again.
  6. If you like, you can get a littlecreative here and give the biscuits some eyes or clothes with icing sugar(which obviously didn't work out so well for me 😊).
