Pumpkin Gingerbread






   
     And these are a few of my favorite things...Pumpkin Gingerbread has stolen my heart...right after it delighted my taste buds.  But seriously, this may be one of the best things I have ever made.  Moist, dense and flavorful are all adjectives that come to mind.  Not to mention, each of these nine baby loaves are only 212 calories, 11g net carbs and 9g protein.  These are so delicious they need no topping, but add a Tablespoon of low fat Cream Cheese for only another 35 calories, 3g net carbs and 2g protein if you are in the slathering mood.  Either way,  you will be tasting the Holidays with each and every bite.  :)

Ingredients for 9 mini Loaves~
1/2 cup Cinnamon Roll Sweet Mama Mels Coconutter, softened (use code Paige15 for 15% discount, may sub with Coconut Oil if necessary)
3 extra large Eggs
1 cup Oats, grind to flour in Magic Bullet or Food Processor
15oz can Pumpkin
6 scoops Gingerbread Vital Protein Collagen Creamer (vitalproteins.com)
1/2 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
Dash Pumpkin Pie Spice
Dash Cinnamon
Dash Vanilla

     Add ingredients to mixing bowl and beat til fully combined.  Add to sprayed non stick mini loaf pan with 9 slots, each slot will receive a scant 1/2 cup batter.  (Use a loaf pan or 8X8 pan if preferred, may need to alter bake time.)  Bake at 350 for 25-28 minutes.  Top each loaf with 1 Tablespoon reduced fat Cream Cheese, if desired.  Enjoy  :)
