What are gingerbread cookies?

Gingerbread Cookies

Nothing says wintertime like warm gingerbread cookies!

Gingerbread is actually an entire category of baked goods. Recipes of course vary wildly, but in general, you’ll see ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon in most varieties. They’re generally sweetened with molasses, honey, and/or sugar, and have a very unique and distinct flavor and aroma thanks to this creative combination. While there are gingerbread cakes, most are familiar with “ginger snaps”, often shaped in festive shapes known as gingerbread men and women.

The origin of gingerbread isn’t fully known, but they seem to have been popularized in medieval Europe around the 11th century.[1]

Now let’s get into the protein itself:

Ghost Vegan Gingerbread Cookie Nutrition Facts

A 33 gram scoop of Gingerbread Ghost Vegan Protein brings:

Ghost Vegan Gingerbread Cookies

Tastes just like the real cookies… only these bring protein to the macros!

  • 120 Calories

  • 20g Protein

  • 2g Fat

  • 6g Carbs

    • 1g Fiber

    • 0g Sugar

As covered in our detailed Ghost Vegan article, this is a gluten-free, soy-free, sugar-free protein powder. It uses a blend of three fully-disclosed proteins:

The Ghost Vegan Protein Blend

  • Pea Protein Concentrate 80% – 15g (12g protein)

  • Organic Pumpkin Protein 70% – 7.86g (5.5g protein)

  • Watermelon Seed Protein 75% – 3.33g (2.5g protein)

Ghost did an incredible job using pea protein as the primary, high-protein base that brings a quality amino acid profile, while using pumpkin and watermelon seed to smooth it out. And unlike most brands still to this day, they’re showing us the recipe used to do it!

The other Ingredients: note the sweetening

Ghost Vegan has become a major part of the Ghost story

On top of the flavors and sunflower creamer, the most important thing to note is that Ghost uses sucralose as their sweetener. This means that the product is 100% vegan, but not 100% plant-based. This is absolutely fine with most Ghost consumers, who often buy Ghost Vegan as a dairy-free protein alternative, since some cannot handle even the low amounts of lactose in the glorious dairy-based Ghost Whey protein.
