Raw Gingerbread Bites

Gingerbread cookies are a guilty winter comfort food pleasure, but Raw Gingerbread Bites are a guilt-free and healthy fix for that cookie craving. After blending the ingredients together, let the kids help to roll them out and shape them.      

Note: You can soak the nuts in advance for at least 6 hours to promote healthier digestion, but it's not necessary.

  • Duration
  • Prep Time
  • 20Servings

Ingredients

  • 1  cup dates (softened in water for 15 minutes and then pitted)
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation

Combine all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until the mixture becomes a thick constistency like cookie dough. Roll out onto a clean tabletop or wax paper, and cut out shapes with cookie cutters, or roll into bite sized balls. 

Can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about a week. (I recommend layering the shapes between pieces of baking paper so they don't stick together).
