COLLAGEN HOLIDAY LOAF RECIPE

The classic holiday loaf recipe is taken to new heights with this healthy, collagen-infused version. It’s sure to keep you warm all winter long!

If you haven’t tried Vital Proteins’ new delicious Collagen Creamers, you need to, there are awesome, especially for those of you that feel like you just can’t give up your creamer.

These diverse creamers can be incorporated into any recipe your heart desires, so naturally a holiday loaf needed to be created.

Gingerbread cookies and loaves are a time-honored tradition for many cultures, including here in America, where the soft-baked loaves are more popular than the stiff variety used to make gingerbread houses. Ginger root was considered by many ancient civilizations as a valuable commodity, as it helped disguise the flavor of preserved food. It has been used in different forms and various tonics to help support digestion and the immune system.
