Gingerbread Men

     No Holiday would be complete without biting the head off of at least one Gingerbread I right!?  Especially when the men are healthy good for you treats! (... and finally a man that doesn't talk back... am I right!?...please forgive, could not resist...)   The other bonus to these dudes, each gentleman is only 132 calories, 6g net carbs and 9g protein (macros do not include piping garnish).  With stats like these you can forgo online dating, just whip up a batch and spend a perfect evening in...a Gingerbread Man is all the man you will ever need!

Ingredients for 6 Men~
1/4 cup Cashew Butter
1 jumbo Egg
1/4 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol
1/4 cup Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour
1 scoop Quest Salted Caramel Protein Powder
1 Tablespoon Molasses
1 Tablespoon Ginger
1 teaspoon Allspice
1 teaspoon Salt
Optional~ dash Vanilla, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Cloves

Philadelphia Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese (sub with regular flavor)

     Mix first set of ingredients, batter will be VERY sticky.  Separate dough into 6 equal portions.  Using your Gingerbread Man cookie cutter, spray it with Pam and set on Silpat lined cookie sheet, press the dough into the cookie cutter and then gently lift the cookie cutter away from the dough.  Repeat with the 5 remaining pieces of dough.  Bake at 325 for 13 minutes, cool and add Cream Cheese to baggie, snip the corner and decorate as desired.  Enjoy  :)

  1. the most important mistake a lot of people make whilst starting off to shed pounds is to set their expectancies too high. New year's rolls round, and those rush to the fitness center announcing "i am going to lose 30 pounds via April!" April 1st rolls around, and having lost simply 5 kilos, people give up hope.
