Gingerbread No-Bake Bites


These high-fiber gingerbread bites are free of refined sugar and gluten--the perfect healthy holiday treat with a secret ingredient--beans!


  • 1-15oz can cannelini beans (or chickpeas), drained and rinsed
  • 9 large Medjool dates, pits removed
  • 1/4 cup creamy almond butter
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats (use certified gluten-free if necessary)


  1. Place beans, dates, almond butter, molasses, maple syrup, salt, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until well-combined, scraping down the sides.
  2. Add oats and blend until mixtures form a mushy dough ball.
  3. Dump mixture into a bowl. Freeze for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove mixture from freezer. Roll into balls. Keep frozen for best texture! These can be refrigerated, but they'll be softer.
