Brace your elves, we have a Christmas-themed recipe for you to try at home!
It’s a quick and easy recipe, and protein-packed for added goodness.This gingerbread man (as you may have noticed!) also happens to be one of the most adorable characters from a beloved kids movie…so get baking! 
Makes: 8-10 cookies 
300g instant porridge oats
125g coconut protein powder (I used the Whey Hey coconut from Bio-Synergy)
1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
3 large eggs
50g brown sugar 
40g butter
2 American hard gums
Blue, White and pink icing 
1 candy cane
Step by step
Prep: 10min  ›  Cook: 6-8min  
Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5
Grind oats in a food processor until you get the consistency of flour (this is just optional!)  
Combine the oat flour with Bio-Synergy coconut protein powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt, and set aside
Warm the butter in the oven or using a sauce pan until almost liquid
Whisk together the sugar, eggs, butter and vanilla. Add to the oat flour and protein powder, and mix well
Line a baking tray with baking paper, and drop the cookie dough onto the tray
Form a gingerbread bread shape with your fingers, or using a mould if you have. (I did mine without a mould, just looked up a ‘Gingey’ picture on the internet to use a model)
Bake in oven for 6 to 8 minutes. Don't overbake. Leave for 5 minutes to cool on the tray
Add the icing, and the American hard gums as decoration, using a picture as model
Bon appétit!
