Gingerbread Energy Bites

Gingerbread Energy Bites


gingerbread bite ingredientsI have been in the mood for these energy bites for a while so this weekend I decided to go for.  They really remind me of the gingerbread cookies I used to make and they are such a healthy options.  The only sweeteners are dates and black strap molasses which is loaded with minerals and vitamins and much better for you.  They are moist and chewy and deliciously spicy without being overly sweet.  They are very satisfying and since they are filled with almonds and molasses they have protein, minerals and B vitamins.  So thank you to Tasty Yummies for creating this awesome vegan, grain-free treat.
