Protein-rich gingerbread bars

Almost every Dutch person has grown up with it: gingerbread. If you didn't get it as a snack to school, your grandma used gingerbread as a binder for hachee and stew meat. The huge selection of gingerbread in the supermarket proves that the spicy, creamy cake is still immensely popular. But unfortunately, the typical Dutch gingerbread is not healthy. Gingerbread contains hardly any proteins, there is a lot of sugar in gingerbread and most gingerbread is not high in fibre. And the 'healthy' zero gingerbread? It has a laxative effect because of the many artificial sweeteners. High time for one Live Puri version of the crowd favorite! May I introduce you to these whole grain, sugar free and high protein gingerbread bars?

These protein-rich gingerbread bars primarily owe the high amount of protein to our delicious protein powder. But that's not the only protein-rich ingredient of these gingerbread bars... Because did you know that you can also make delicious protein-rich pancakes, cakes and gingerbread with protein pudding? In this recipe, the protein powder and the protein pudding together ensure that a bar of gingerbread contains no less than 11 grams of protein! Moreover, making these protein-rich gingerbread bars is a piece of cake, and you can also give it your own twist. Gingerbread with chocolate, gingerbread caramel or gingerbread with vanilla flavor - it's all possible!

Are you someone who likes to eat healthy bars as a snack? With all kinds of protein powder from Live Puri you can make your own protein bars! Just look at this one peanut butter protein bars  and this low carb high protein lunch bars.
