These gingerbread energy bites are the perfect healthy holiday treat (or snack!). Easy to make and 100% gluten-free, dairy-free, paleo, and refined sugar-free. Full of healthy ingredients, like cashews, dates, coconut flakes, and warming spices.




  1. Add the cashews and 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes to a food processor and process until you get a fine sand-like texture. Add the dates and process again to combine.
  2. Then add the vanilla extract, spices, and salt and process again until combined. The mixture should be sticky and should hold together when pinched.
  3. Roll into 12-14 balls and place on a plate.
  4. To the empty food processor, add 1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes. Process until finely ground (a few larger pieces are ok). Add to a shallow bowl.
  5. Roll the balls into the ground coconut to coat.
  6. Store energy bites in an airtight container in the freezer or refrigerator.
