7 Lip-Smacking Gingerbread Recipes That Are Actually Pretty Healthy for You ...


It’s the season for gingerbread, and I’ve got tons of gingerbread recipes to share with you that you are going to love! I have to be honest that I love baking and cooking with both pumpkin and gingerbread flavors all through February, despite that they’re typical holiday flavors. They’re so warming during the cooler months, and they’re a nice refreshing change from traditional chocolate recipes, which we get plenty of when Valentine’s Day hits. Hey, I love my chocolate and don’t go without it, but it’s nice to have something else to cure your sweet tooth, which is where gingerbread comes in. If you love the warming, rich scents and tastes that gingerbread brings, check out my favorite gingerbread recipes of the season. They’re a little naughty and a little nice, but either way, they’re incredibly delicious!

Gingerbread Protein Pancakes

Everyone loves protein pancakes, and gingerbread recipes, so why not combine them and create one amazing dish in an incredible flavor? Here’s a recipe for you to give you the best of both worlds. These are also grain- free, and refined sugar-free, easy to prepare and you can enjoy them with, or without syrup, as they are plenty sweet enough on their own.

Makes: 4 pancakes


1 ¼ cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk

¼ cup egg whites

1 tbsp. ground flax seeds

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. molasses

⅔ cup coconut flour

¼ tsp. pure stevia powder, or 10 drops of liquid

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. ginger

¼ tsp. nutmeg

¼ tsp. cloves

Directions: Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl and stir to sift well. Sit aside. Add the liquid ingredients to another bowl and stir well. Sit aside. Turn a griddle onto high, and spray with nonstick spray, or coat a skillet with nonstick spray and turn the burner on your stovetop on. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry, stirring very well to incorporate the coconut flour thoroughly, as it gets very, very thick when you stir it. The batter should be lumpy. Spoon it out on your griddle in ¼ cup servings at a time, and then cook for 2 minutes on each side, flipping in between. If you cook it in your skillet, cook one at a time. Cool pancakes on a glass plate and serve as you wish.
