Paleo Gingerbread with Vanilla Frosting


'Tis the season... for paleo gingerbread? That's right, kweens. So maybe cavemen didn't eat gingerbread — but if they did, IT'D BE THIS ONE. Not only is it grain-free, but the frosting has a *secret ingredient* that will stabilize your blood sugar without compromising taste.

The secret ingredient? ALOHA Vanilla Protein Powder. The only stevia-free protein powder I've tried that somehow manages to taste amazing. They use 13 real ingredients, which you guys know I'm all about. Plus, it's plant-based and dairy-free! #WINNING.

 

Ingredients
Paleo Gingerbread
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 & 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 3 T tapioca flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 T vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 T fresh grated ginger 
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
Vanilla Frosting
  • 1 scoop ALOHA Vanilla Protein Powder 
  • 2 cans coconut milk (make sure to get the kind with no guar gum or this won’t work!)
  • 2 T maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat the oven to 375 F and prepare frosting: place 2 cans of coconut milk upside down in the fridge until pretty chilly. Open cans and scrape off the thick coconut cream into a bowl. Add maple syrup and vanilla, and whip with a hand or standing mixer. While mixer is on low, slowly add in ALOHA Vanilla Protein Powder. Stick in fridge and save for later.

 

In a big ol' mixing bowl, whisk all gingerbread ingredients together until batter is smooth. Lightly oil a loaf pan (I used 9" x 5") and pour in batter. Bake for about 45 minutes, until toothpick comes clean when poked in center! Let cool, top with vanilla frosting and dive in face-first.
