Brace your elves, we have another Christmas themed recipe for you to try at home! Like our Reindeer Cupcakes, 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 per cookie

Blue, White and pink icing

1 candy cane for decoration

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. Drop the cookie dough onto the tray in 8-10 even portions
  • Form gingerbread man shapes with your fingers, or use 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!
