Health Tip of the Week: Gingerbread Cookie Balls

Diet restrictions during the holidays? No problem! This recipe is both vegan-friendly and gluten-free! These cookie balls are raw, so no baking is required.

INGREDIENTS

1 ¼ cup pitted dates, packed

¼ cup almond meal

¼ cup buckwheat groats

¾ cup gluten-free rolled oats

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

½ teaspoon nutmeg

¼ teaspoon vanilla

¼ teaspoon cloves

Optional: 1 tablespoon coconut sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

Blend all ingredients, except for dates, in a high-speed blender or food processor until you get a fine consistency like flour. Add in half of the dates and process until well combined, then add the remaining dates until you have a uniform dough. Scoop dough out about 1 tablespoon in size, roll into balls or flatten with a rolling pin and use a cookie cutter to make desired shapes. Roll balls into coconut sugar or sprinkle on top of cookies.
