Festive bake: Protein gingerbread

Gingerbread was one of my favourite treats at Christmas growing up however most recipes have wheat in them. So i challenged myself to create a new recipe that was wheat free, refined sugar free and a decent protein macro count. And here is the result for you lucky lot !

It's really simple to make and the use of the pumpkin keeps the bake really light - sweet potato or squash can also be used just make sure you cook and blend it first :). I used Sticky Toffee flavour whey from TheFoodMedic range by Natural Whey but vanilla would also work. I have written measurements of the spices but it's all personal preference so go for it !
