Ingredients

    Eggs, 5 large
    Flaxseed oil, 1/3 cup
    Water, 1/2 cup
    Vanilla extract, 1 tsp
    Flax seed meal, 2 cups
    Baking powder, 1 tbsp
    Splenda (for baking, 1-1 sugar measure style), 1/2 cup
    Cinnamon, ground, 1 tsp
    Ginger, ground, 1 tbsp
    Cloves, ground, .5 tsp

Directions

Makes 48 generous gingerbread squares.

Line a jelly-roll pan with parchment paper, spread a thin layer of flax seed oil onto the paper. Preheat oven to 350 deg F.

Whisk together eggs, oil and water in one bowl. In a second bowl, mix all the dry ingredients well, making sure to blend baking powder throughout the mix. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and mix well. Let stand 5 minutes to allow flax meal to absorb some of the liquid, and thicken.

Spread batter evenly onto oiled parchment paper, right out to the edges of the jellyroll pan. The batter should be about 1/2" thick. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes. Cut into 48 squares.

Each square has 1.9g of carbs and 1.4g of fibre for a total of .5g of effective carbs per square, and 1.7g of protein each.
