The festive season may just be my favourite time of the year – the busiest time of year filled with friends, family, drinks and food. So. Much. Food.

I am all about balance, and will be indulging in many a Christmas treat this year – however have a few super easy and clean swaps you can make. This clean gingerbread recipe is one of my new favourite treats (and one I will be making all year round). With a slight chocolate hint from the Go Good Chocolate Whey Protein and a nutty aftertaste from the almonds, in my opinion – this may well beat regular gingerbread.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Years. With love from my family to yours…

INGREDIENTS AND DIRECTIONS

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ cup almonds
  • ½ cup oats
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 scoop of Go Good Organic Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp grated nutmeg
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg (whisked)
  • 3 Tbsp oil of your choice (coconut, rice bran)
  • 3-4 dried dates
  • 1 Tbsp brown rice or maple syrup

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius.
  2. Blitz your almonds and oats together in a food processor to create a fine flour.
  3. Add in your ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, Go Good Chocolate Whey Protein and baking powder and give a quick pulse to combine.
  4. Pop in your dates and blend to create breadcrumb like consistency.
  5. Add oil and brown rice syrup. Then slowly add whisked egg till the mixture forms a dough (you may not need the entire egg).
  6. Tip dough onto floured baking paper and roll out to ½ to a 1cm thick (personal preference!). Note – this is quite a sticky dough, so if you find it getting a bit warm, pop it in the fridge for 5-10 minutes. Add some flour to your hands as well!
  7. Cut your shapes and place on tray – bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

PRO TIP: if you don’t have a rolling pin… wrap your GoGood shaker in a piece of baking paper and use to roll the dough – PERFECT MAKESHIFT!
