Gingerbread Bites

It’s the end of December and my affinity for gingerbread flavored anything/everything feels like it hasn’t even yet his its peak. If gingerbread were a mountain, I’d want a bumper sticker that said “these taste buds climbed Mt. Gingerbread!!” Because I’m hopelessly devoted. In smoothies, cookies, and now snack bites.

I’ve always been an enormous fan of molasses, which combined with a few spices is the bright and shining STAR of most gingerbread recipes. Mostly because it’s a great source of non-heme iron (plant based iron). Paired with a little vitamin C and BAM – absorption factor 100 (desperate attempts to make nutrition cool). In addition to iron, it’s got pretty envious amounts of calcium and magnesium too, which combined are powerhouses for bones. So yeah, time for you to jump this recipe’s bones (too much?). Below!
