These gingerbread slices with jam and chocolate icing are quick and easy to make and spread a tempting aroma throughout the house. The olive oil in the dough makes the gingerbread biscuits moist and fluffy. The biscuits have a wonderful nutty and fruity taste - Christmas can come!

The quantity is enough for one baking tray.



  • 350 g plain flour
  • 100 g ground hazelnuts
  • 4 tbsp gingerbread spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 sachet baking powder
  • 150 g chopped candied fruit
  • 150-200 g coconut blossom sugar

Mix the dry ingredients together well in a bowl.
Mix all the liquid ingredients until frothy and pour into the dry ingredients. Mix everything together well.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and use a baking frame if available.
Spread the dough on the tray or in the baking frame and bake in the preheated oven at 190°C top/bottom heat for approx. 20 minutes.
