Three Wise Gingerbread Men

You'll actually get 4 extra wise gingerbread men with this recipe! These seven delicious little gingerbread men pack a big punch of protein. Combine this with the anti-inflammatory properties of ginger that help to reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) and you have a perfect festive post-workout snack that you can take along to the gym with you.

Serves 7



125 g (4.5 oz) Protein powder

3 Egg whites

6 tsp Ground ginger

6 tsp Ground cinnamon

0.25 tsp Ground cloves

50 g Dark chocolate (80%)

250 g (9 oz) Almond flour

60 g Coconut sugar



1. Preheat the oven to 345 F (Gas Mark 3, 170 C).

2. Beat the egg whites with a whisk until they stiffen.

3. Gently fold all the dry ingredients, except the chocolate, into the egg whites until they are well combined.

4. The mixture should now feel like a slightly wet dough.

5. Divide the dough into seven balls and then shape each to look like a gingerbread man (for best results use a gingerbread man cookie cutter).

6. Place the gingerbread men in the oven on a baking tray and cook for 15 minutes.

7. Remove them from the oven, turn them over and cook for a further 10 minutes.

8. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

9. Meanwhile, slowly melt the chocolate in a small bowl over a pot of hot water. Once melted, transfer the chocolate to a piping bag.

10. Once cool, decorate the gingerbread men with the melted chocolate. Be sure to eat them quickly before they run away!
