Little Ginger Heads


Run run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me I’m the ginger headed man!  Baby number 5 of 5 was born with red hair and this is how we read him his fave story about the Gingerbread man.  So, a bit of trivial information but these are undoubtedly the best gingerbread men we have ever tasted, and guess what?  They are paleo friendly which means they are refined sugar free, grain free and dairy free.  We have adapted this recipe from The Nourishing Home.IMG_4556
