Because normal gingerbread will never give you the Christmas gains like these little beauties! These are definitely more of an energy boost rather than a sweet treat like previous bites that I’ve made, due to the whey protein, but are delicious nonetheless. I went through a bit of a gingerbread kick over Christmas so got my festive spice blending on the go.
Once again, these took minimal time and effort and satiated any Christmas-themed hunger pangs I experienced that week.
100g creamed coconut
4 tbsp almond butter
25g scoop vanilla protein powder
2 tbsp ground almonds
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
- Blend the dates, almond butter and creamed coconut in a blender until smooth.
- In a separate bowl mix the ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, protein powder and almonds and add to the date mixture.
- Blend again until fully mixed then roll into balls. Refrigerate for about half an hour to set before eating.
