Dark Chocolate covered Ginger Spice Bites

Had a go at capturing some healthy Christmas cheer today and I think I may have succeeded 🙂
They are dairy-free, nearly gluten-free, and the only added sugar is in the chocolate coating (which if you use dark chocolate is not a lot)…. but they are rather tasty and easy as to make.

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup almond meal
1 cup coconut flour
1 tsp natural vanilla essence
1 big tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cardamom
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1 Big TBSP coconut oil
pinch of salt
3 cups of soaked dates
1 block dark chocolate (I use whittikers for dairy-free)

Combine all the dry ingredients, and spices in the food processor then add the dates and coconut oil and blend to a dough like consistency.

Roll into balls and allow a little time to set then dip into melted chocolate to coat. Sprinkle with edible glitter for some extra flair 😉

You could try using whole almonds instead of almond meal for a more chunky texture, but the almond meal makes it more “cookie-dough” like.

Yum Yum the perfect after-dinner treat, with a hot tea or coffee. And the bonus is that the ginger and spices will help to settle you tummy and speed up digestion after big festive meals.

    1. Hi, they are super yummy. They hold together really well and are not really crumbly at all. However if you like a really nice soft texture you could add a few more soaked dates.

      1. Oh yum! I think figs would work really well actually. Would probably give a slightly different texture to dates which blend up pretty smooth but they would be delicious!
