This Gingerbread Skillet is covered with chocolate chunks, super moist and flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. It gives you that classic, cozy holiday flavor and will make your house smell like a gingerbread cookie!
This Gingerbread Skillet is basically banana bread, chocolate chip muffins and gingerbread cookies all in one. Your taste buds are gonna freak the F out because it’s that good. Also, don’t tell anyone but Santa told me he would very much appreciate if you made him one of these. You’ll bump right up to #1 on his nice list.
Ginger, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon are the essential spices for gingerbread. I also like to add vanilla extract because it complements the spices really well.
I know eating around the holidays can be super stressful. We are constantly told what we “should” and “shouldn’t” eat. We are flooded with messages that go against listening to our own bodies. We are all victims to diet culture. Intuitive eating is something I recommend practicing year-round but it’s especially helpful around the holidays.
Basically, it helps you give yourself permission to enjoy a variety of nourishing, pleasurable and satisfying foods. It can help you take the focus off of food and your body and open up space to focus on more meaningful things like spending time with family.
Listening to your body and honoring it’s needs in a way that feels good for you is what will ultimately lead you to feel your best. When you restrict yourself or tell yourself you shouldn’t or can’t eat something, you immediately feel deprived. This deprivation can lead to slowing of your metabolism and increased cravings. Your body is like “OMG I better get it while I can”. However, once your body trusts that you will no longer deprive it, these foods will become a balanced part of your eating and you no longer have to feel out of control around food.
