We have reached the cusp of December, so it feels fitting that we dive right into some gingerbread. Now, these bites aren't going to taste like your traditional gingerbread cookie, because they're sparse on the sugar (it's all in the molasses), so think of these as gingerbread's healthier cousin. Anyway, they're still a fun and festive treat, full of spices and flavor. This recipe only makes 10 gingerbread bites, but it's super easy to double or triple the batch to make more for your family and friends - because let's be serious, 10 is just not enough! This original recipe is from the 12 Minute Athlete recipe blog, and our version uses Vanilla Bean IsoJect Protein.Macros (1 "Bite"): 61 calories 2.6F/5.8C/3.7P (1g fiber)
