Wednesday night baking: High protein and fibre gingerbread.

This is a variation on Yorkshire Parkin, a form of gingerbread made with oatmeal which gives it a dense and slightly chewy texture. I've substituted the flour in the original recipe with roughly equal parts flaxmeal, soy flour, gluten flour and pea protein isolate. I've also used malt syrup instead of treacle/molasses so it's more malty and less caramel.

End result is deviously gingery and sweet with the malt and oat also prominent, like Anzac biscuits and gingernuts had a baby and it was a cake. A serving (eighth slice) has about 11g protein, 2.3g fibre and 252 calories. Next time I'll try and reduce the sugar and boost the gluten flour and pea protein.

You're supposed to keep Parkin in a tin for a few days to let the flavour develop, but I couldn't even resist long enough to let it finish cooling down.
