Two Fantastic Christmas Recipes

Gingerbreads

I LOOOOVE gingerbreads and I could eat them all day every day! These gingerbreads have nothing unhealthy in them. They might not have the texture like proper gingerbreads, but they taste like gingerbreads. Don’t compare them with normal ones, but for being healthy they are a good alternative! You can make them a bit softer or crunchier depending on the time in the oven. Due to the coconut flour they are high in fibre, hence the difference in the texture.
Ingredients:
60g Coconut Flour
20g Whey Protein – vanilla
3tbp Almond Flour
1tsp Xanthan gum
3tsp Gingerbread spice
4-5 tbp Stevia sweetener
1 drop vanilla essence
Salt
2 egg whites
2 tsp coconut oil (melted)

Do it like this

Turn oven on to 160 degrees. Mix all ingredients together using your hands. Shape it to a ball, place the dough on greaseproof baking paper and place another one on top. Roll out until it’s about 3mm, use various gingerbread men shapes and place on a baking tray with greaseproof paper on. Bake in the middle of the oven for  13-15 min, until they got some colour. Open the door so you get out most off the heat and turn down the temperature to 75 degrees and let the tray stay in the oven for another 10-20 min ( Maybe a bit longer, depending on oven) so the gingerbread “dries”.Take the tray out and let them cool down. If they don’t get hard enough, put them back in the oven a bit longer.

After Eight Fudge

Oh yes, what would Christmas be without the Aftereights around the table! (Who waits until after 8pm? I wait until 8am! ) I made these for a family birthday celebration, so they could try them out. They didn’t last very long in the house – they absolutely loved them! The best thing is that its only three ingredients only and its super easy to make.

 

Ingredients:

250g dark chocolate
150g after eight
1 tin sweetened condensed milk
Do it like this

Break the chocolate and place on a heatproof bowl. Sit over a pan of barely simmering water and allow to melt. Then add the After Eight and let it melt. Stir in the condensed milk and mix well together. Spread in a tray covered with greaseproof paper. I used a tray that is 15 x 20cm.
