Gingerbread was most definitely not on my list of likes when I was a kid. Gingerbread men? Pass. Gingersnaps or slices of gingerbread? No and no.

I’m not sure at what point in my adult years I changed my tune but now my love for gingerbread flavored anything is equivalent to the pumpkin spice craze – though the difference is I don’t start talking about it until November vs. August.

But because daily gingerbread consumption isn’t exactly kind to the waistline, I try to find ways to incorporate gingerbread flavors into more every day, good-for-you recipes like oatmeal, energy bites or smoothies.

Below I’ve compiled a scrumptious looking list of gingerbread creations from Healthy Aperture contributors– including both the everyday options and some of the more indulgent ones.

My question for you is, how do you like your gingerbread? And which of these recipes would you try first? (I think I’m going to start at the top of the list and celebrate 15 Days of Gingerbread once Thanksgiving is over.)
