Mauimama recipe Hawaiian holiday ginger bread

All the goodies over the holidays can make the discipline of not over indulging difficult. One way to feel less guilty is to earn your calories before you eat them! Shake while you bake. Put on some of your favorite holiday hits and get moving mama.

I find the prep time always takes a little longer as there’s a lot of baby distracting going on too. “Here baby bang this spoon, stack these bowls, jiggle these measuring cups,” only lasts so long. Interacting and dancing with baby can make baking all the more enjoyable. Take little breaks. Pick up baby and do some squats, lunges, dance around, give baby something new to play with then add a few more ingredients. Stir, dance, twirl, do some standing push ups using the counter… you get the idea. I love baking vegan and low sugar for many reasons, but one is that the batter is safe for baby.

This recipe for Hawaiian Holiday Ginger Bread makes 3 small loaves. One won’t make it past the first day for you and your little helper. Give one to a friend and share the third loaf with someone special. This recipe is bold. More sassy than sweet!
