You’ll love these Vegan + Gluten Free Gingerbread Bliss Balls! They’re such an easy recipe to make and prep for a week of healthy, seasonal snacks!

You know gingerbread season is upon us and I couldn’t let this week start off without some seasonal bliss balls.

Vegan Gingerbread Bliss Balls

These are my favorite kind of snacks to make because you pack them with goodies, make them super nutrient dense, and literally throw everything in a bowl. I made these pumpkin energy balls a couple months back and felt like gingerbread HAD to happen.

This is the easiest recipe, you guys. you literally mix everything up in a bowl and then roll them in balls and if you’re hankering for a little something extra extra, you dip them and drizzle them with chocolate. DONE. and then you’re done.

Ok, now a word on puffed quinoa. I love it. I’ve used it in these peanut butter crunch balls, and this homemade chocolate crunch bar, and literally everywhere else I can because it is SO fun to eat. I was buying it on amazon but the brand I was using stopped making it so I searched high and low and the best place I have found to buy this crispy puffed quinoa is HERE

These bliss balls are one of those snacks that you can eat any time of day. Wake up and enjoy a couple with your morning coffee, pack them with your lunch for a little pick me up at work, or have a couple more after dinner when that sweet tooth is screaming.

I like to prep a batch of bliss balls for healthy snacking throughout the week. It’s nice to have a stash in my fridge so I don’t grab for less healthy options. Anywho, enough yabbering, let’s get into the recipe!

Whisk together the melted cocoa butter and agave nectar. Once combined, add the almond flour, cinnamon, ground ginger, salt, and nutmeg. Whisk again until combined.

Fold in the crispy, puffed quinoa and the pecans. Use a cookie scooper to scoop balls and place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can keep them as is, but I like to roll them in between my hands to make the balls smooth. 

Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in the coconut oil. once smooth, dip each ball or drizzle them with the chocolate. Place the balls back on the parchment paper. Chill for 10 minutes until the chocolate hardens. Store in the fridge.
