Nothing says ‘tis the season quite like gingerbread. For our wheat or grain avoiding friends, we’ve put together this festive, paleo-friendly, gingerbread-inspired recipe. Basically, a hybrid between brownies and gingerbread cake, these rich and flavourful brownies are somehow both light and gooey, and we promise you, absolutely delicious.
You’ll notice collagen as one of the ingredients. This addition is optional, but hey, we’re Sproos, so we love putting collagen in everything, plus we think the texture in these brownies is even improved by the collagen! Collagen doesn’t affect the flavour, but it does add blood sugar balancing protein in baking, plus, of course you also get the other added benefits of collagen.
Make these ahead and keep them in the freezer for when you are craving a healthy holiday treat, or, they’re also perfect to share at a festive celebration. We’d even back these brownies as dessert for Christmas dinner! Serve with a dollop of lightly sweetened whipped coconut cream and a sprinkling of finely chopped dried cranberries.
