These taste exactly like a gingerbread!! My favorite topping for gingerbread is whipped cream, but to make them a protein kick, I topped them with vanilla sweetened ricotta! They were AMAZING!! πŸ™‚ I have made them about 8-10 times in the last few weeks….all with different flavor combinations!! πŸ˜‰

  • Oh, WOW. I've got a new obsession with gingerbread flavoring ... even though it's after the holidays I still crave it! I have coconut flour and have experimented baking with it but I truly cannot stand the taste of coconut flour. Does the ginger cover it up well? I think I am the only person who hates the flavor!

    These look so yummy! If I wanted to bring the fat of the recipe down a little, what would you recommend I change?

    Mine required sooo much more almond milk to get it to a pancake batter consistency. Any clue what went wrong?
