Yep, I have another bite recipe for you today…can you blame me, they’re just so damn tasty! I’ve been a little ginger-obsessed lately, so it was only natural to concoct a perfect, little ball of raw gingerbread perfection. These are really good.
They’re flavourful, chewy, delicious and take 5 minutes to make. There’s really no reason not to make a batch to keep on hand! I think these might be my favourite bite recipe yet!
One of my most popular posts on the blog is 10 Quick and Easy Vegan Snack Ideas so I guess a lot of people out there are looking for vegan snack ideas. This natural, little treat 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.
As usual, these little guys are completely vegan and raw, and can be gluten-free if you use gluten-free oats. They’re sweetened naturally by dates, molasses and just a little maple syrup. You can feel good about popping one or two and they make a great alternative to those massive, calorie-laden Starbucks Ginger Cookies.
To make them, all you need to do is add everything to a food processor and booyah! Raw Vegan Gingerbread Bites! …food to make you smile…ENJOY!
- 1¼ cup walnut pieces
- 1 cup quick oats (gluten-free if required)
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- 3 tsp ground ginger

Today my husband and I participated in the Vancouver Walk for Farm Animals. It’s a great event that raises funds for the Farm Sanctuary. We walked 2.3 miles through the streets of downtown, raising awareness and spreading the word. My husband was so supportive today, coming along to the event, handing our flyers and getting right into it.
I ended up raising $130 for this event with the help of my very generous sponsors. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed!
