Gingerbread Energy Bites

Recipe reposted from Sarah Remmer


"We love a good protein bite around here. And it’s fun to experiment with different flavour combinations throughout the year too, and what better flavour to bring out for the holidays than gingerbread! Gingerbread is like a big holiday hug to me, so these energy bites are one of my current go-tos between meals.

In all of my protein and energy ball recipes, I include a nice balance of protein-rich ingredients as well as fibre-rich ingredients to help keep tummies satisfied and energy levels stable. Most often, I use an oat base (in this case I used Made with Local’s Granola Bar Mix!). I like using Made with Local’s mixes for energy bites for many reasons – they are so easy to use (throw the whole package in as the base!), and contain nutritious ingredients like oats, seeds, dried fruit and coconut. I love that they are a women-led local business as well!

If you’re a gingerbread fan like me, you’ll love this energy ball recipe. Enjoy!"
