Over a low heat gently melt the butter, coconut sugar, blackstrap molasses and maple syrup together. Stir frequently to dissolve the sugar and when melted turn off the heat and set aside for 5 minutes.
Put the dry ingredients into a bowl and pour the melted ingredients on top, stirring with a wooden spoon.
Add the beaten egg and stir again until a dough begins to form.
Use your hands to form the dough into a ball, wrap in parchment paper or cling film and cool in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Turn the oven to 170°C
Dust your work surface with a little flour. Roll the dough out and use cookie cutters to make your gingerbread men - or other shapes. You will need to re-roll the dough several times to make the full amount.
Place the gingerbread men on a greased baking tray, baking stone or tray lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for approximately 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
Leave to cool for 5 minutes and then lift them onto a wire rack to cool further. Decorate and enjoy!
