Collagen Creamer Holiday Loaf

Hey Fit Fam,

Oh the irony!! I was sipping on my Gut Healing Coffee Saturday morning (with some Gingerbread Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer added in) .. when I got an email for a new recipe that calls for this creamer... but the recipe was for a CAKE (technically a loaf.)

Yup ..  Vital Proteins collagen coffee creamers don’t just go in your coffee or tea.
You can BAKE with them as well.

Before we get to the recipe let me tell you about these creamers. If you already have some and know the benefits .. feel free to scroll on down and get to the recipe details.

Collagen Coffee Creamer

If you are a "bulletproof coffee" fan then these creamers are right up your alley!
Or maybe you just want an EASY and delicious way to get in your collagen and some healthy fats to start your day!

Vital Proteins Collagen Creamers are a nourishing way to boost your morning brew. Also great in teas, baked goods, and desserts, these versatile Creamers are Whole30-approved and free of dairy, artificial flavors, added sugars, and carrageenan. A healthy way to start your day, they’re rich in clean collagen protein and healthy fats from organic coconut milk.
  • Boost Energy: VP Collagen Creamers are rich in energy-boosting MCTs, a type of healthy fat found in coconut milk.**
  • Add Protein: VP creamers boast 10 grams of clean collagen protein from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine per serving.**
  • Support Connective Tissues: As the most abundant protein in the body, collagen is responsible for the maintenance of healthy hair, skin, nails, bones and joints.**
  • 100% Clean: VP's Whole30-approved Collagen Creamers are made with only real-food ingredients and are free of artificial sweeteners, refined sugars, dairy, and gluten.**
Questions about collagen in general? Where to start? Why I use Vital Proteins? Send me an email! Or check out by blog - “Healing My Gut With Collagen”

I personally aim to get 20-30g of collagen a day from mixed VP sources! Because I mix my sources I don't use full serving of the creamer in the morning. One tablespoon will do! But don't forget... 20g of Vital Proteins Collagen (from any source) should be your daily goal to see all the amazing health benefits!

Paleo Collagen Holiday Loaf

Collagen Holiday Loaf 

Loaf Ingredients
1 c cashew butter

1/2 c applesauce

1/2 c maple syrup

2 eggs

1 t vanilla extract

1 t fresh grated ginger root

1/2 c cassava flour

1 t baking powder

2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer, Coconut

1/4 t salt

1 T lemon juice

Gingerbread spice (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice) to taste

Glaze Ingredients:

1 scoop Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer, Coconut - (I bet the gingerbread one would be BOMB)

2 T coconut milk

2 T raw honey

1 t arrowroot starch

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a standard loaf pan and set aside.
2. In a large mixing bowl, add in cashew butter, applesauce, maple syrup, egg, vanilla extract and fresh grated ginger root. Mix until well-combined.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together cassava flour, baking powder, Coconut Collagen Creamer, salt, and spices.
4. Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until well-incorporated.
5. Add in the lemon juice and whisk again.
6. Pour batter into the loaf pan and bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out mostly clean.
7. For the glaze: add all ingredients to a high speed blender and blend on high. Let the glaze sit for a few minutes to thicken. Best served on the holiday loaf when it has cooled slightly.
8. Serve immediately.

* I have no clue if any substitution to make this more “macro” healthy are possible (such as a different sweetener than honey or maple syrup, lite coconut milks, egg whites instead of egg, different nut butters, etc. But feel free to try *

*If you only have one flavor of the Creamers any of them would work for this recipe (Vanilla, Coconut or Gingerbread.

*Here is the recipe for my GUT HEALING COFFEE I mention that I was sipping on.
