I’ve been a little ginger-obsessed lately, so it was only natural to concoct perfect, raw vegan gingerbread bites. These are so good! They’re flavourful, chewy, delicious and take 5 minutes to make. 


One of my most popular posts on the blog is my post all about Easy Vegan Snack Ideas, so I guess a lot of people out there are looking for vegan snack ideas. These healthy, raw vegan gingerbread bites can definitely be added to the list.


These make a great snack for busy days, just throw a few in a ziplock or Tupperware and you’ll be ready to stroll right past the vending machine. Healthy, vegan snacking is actually really easy if you’re prepared. Think lots of fresh fruit, raw veggies and hummus and of course, homemade energy bars and bites.


As usual, these little guys are completely vegan and naturally gluten-free. They’re sweetened naturally with dates, molasses and a little maple syrup. You can feel good about popping one or two and they make a great alternative to those drool-worthy but sugar and butter-loaded, coffee shop ginger cookies.

To make them, all you need to do is add everything to a food processor, blend it up and you’ve got yourself some gingerbread bites. These are healthy enough for a snack, delicious enough for a snack and even work great for holiday goodie trays.
