I have fond memories of gingerbread cookies. As a youngster, my kindergarten class learned how to make gingerbread men cookies, and then they mysteriously took off on an adventure through the school!
We went on a scavenger hunt throughout the school looking for them using the clues they left behind at each stop. It took us all day to find them, their sweet scent just out of reach each time. But finally...they stayed put for more than a few minutes (a.k.a. the teachers became tired of hiding them and leaving notes) and they were ours to devour!
I might not take them on a scavenger hunt throughout my home, but these gingerbread cookies from Naturally Sweet Vegan Treat by Marisa Alvarsson will definitely be making an appearance in my kitchen this holiday season!

Maria Koutsogiannis's, founder of FoodbyMaria, new cookbook, Mindful Vegan Meals, is full of creative and healthy recipes. I connected with her story of overcoming an eating disorder and learning to love food and herself once again.
Maria's open and honest approach to life and her meals is inspiring. I love her food philosophy, "Food isn’t your enemy, it’s literally the best thing for you."
I am thankful to be able to share a few recipes from her new cookbook!
