Chewy, doughy and soft with all the gingerbread flavor. These mini delights are an oil-free, healthy dessert (with a higher protein option!) that come together in all of 9-10 minutes. Health + convenience + sweet tooth satisfaction = the perfect trifecta. For a low sugar frosting alternative try drizzling gently melted coconut butter over the top. Enjoy!

Yield: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups gluten free oat flour
  • 1/4 cup vegan protein powder (plain or vanilla flavor; or can sub for more flour)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup molasses (or brown rice syrup) (RFR tip: or coconut nectar!)
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (or any nut butter)
  • 1/2 cup milk

Instruction

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, protein powder, sugar, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
  2. In a separate small bowl, combine molasses and almond butter; mix until combined. Then pour in almond milk and gently heat on the stovetop in a small pan until warmed, to easily stir together.
  3. Pour wet ingredients over dry and mix. Mixture will seem dry but keep mixing; it will come together in a big mound.
  4. Scoop out 2 tablespoons and form a ball with your hands. Flatten it out a couple times before rolling into a ball to get it nice and sticky. Finish rolling into balls until mixture is gone.
