For those of you that follow my facebook page and instagram account, you’ve already gotten a sneak peek at this recipe.
I am in love with these little snack bites. I have made several recipes utilizing this same idea in the past but I never thought to make gingerbread flavored ones until now. These are super easy to make, and super tasty. And they’re the perfect little dessert to make your sweetheart for valentines day 😉
(raw, vegan, dairy free, can be made gluten free)
Makes 11 bite sized bliss balls
– 3/4 cup oats
– 1/2 cup almonds
– 1 spoonful flax seed (powdered)
– 1/8 cup baking cocoa
– 10-12 dates (softened) soak in water for ~25 minutes prior to using; you can also do this the night before you decide to make these)
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 2 tsp ginger
Protip: Soften your dates the night before you plan to use them so they are ready to go the next day. Simply add your dates to a bowl of water and soak in the refrigerator overnight.
Once your dates are soft, process everything in your food processor until mixture starts to clump together. form into balls and roll in baking cocoa. Makes 11.I have frozen these before in the past but i doubt you will have enough leftover to freeze 😉
Question of the day:
What’s your favorite snack? Have you ever made snack bites/bliss balls/energy bites like these before?
