These no-bake Gingerbread Energy Bites are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan with no added sugar. They’re super easy to whip up for a healthy holiday delight you can feel awesome about. And.. they’re delicious!

Here’s the details:
1 cup of pitted dates*
1/4 cup of dried cranberries*
½ cup almonds (raw or roasted, depending on your preference)
½ cup cashews (same as above)
¼ cup of chia seeds
½ tablespoon blackstrap molasses
½ tsp vanilla
¼ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp cinnamon
⅛ tsp nutmeg
A pinch of salt
½ cup unsweetened dried coconut flakes (optional)

Makes 10-15 servings, depending on size.
*As an optional first step, plump your dates and cranberries in a bowl of water for 10-15 minutes. It adds moisture and helps to bring out the natural flavours.

Step 1.

Place everything (except the coconut flakes) into a food processor. Combine for a few minutes until everything is well mixed. A ball of dough may form.

Step 2.

Roll into balls and finish by rolling into flakes of coconut until fully covered.

Step 3.

Enjoy! Can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for future enjoyment.
