There’s always a birthday party or book club meeting that could use something sweet and spicy to get people talking. Bring on the ginger cookies! Really steal the show by shaping your batch with a gingerbread man cookie cutter and topping with cinnamon-swirl protein icing.
Iced Ginger Cookies
Makes: approx. 2 dozen
1. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together.
2. Drop batter onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 6 – 8 minutes, or until golden brown.
1 scoop Cinnamon Swirl Cellucor Cor-Performance Whey Protein
2 Tbsp. honey
¼ cup milk
2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
¼ tsp. cinnamon
In a small bowl, mix all icing ingredients together. The consistency should be creamy but not runny. Add more protein powder to thicken it up, if needed.
*I know it’s hard to resist, but let the cookies cool completely before icing them!
