Can you believe we are less than two weeks out from Christmas? This year has gone by so fast. Well, just these last few months at least. Having a baby will do that to you!
I didn't get as many "Christmas" recipes on the blog this year because, well, I just had a baby, and we just finished our first annual Cookie Week! It was so fun to share five brand new cookie recipes with you and I hope you love them as much as my family does!
One of the Christmas recipes I did finish was these Gingerbread Protein Balls. I actually had a few different ideas for protein bites this year but everyone on Instagram voted for this flavor! And I'm so glad they did. Each little bite tastes just like a gingerbread cookie or molasses cookie!
I love these low calorie protein balls because they're so easy to make and they taste just like a gingerbread cookie or a molasses cookie! This recipe can be broken down into four simple steps:
Pro tip: if the dough is too sticky for you, lightly spray your hands with cooking spray before rolling into balls. This will prevent the dough from sticking to you and help the dough roll into smooth balls!
Not necessarily, but keeping your no bake energy bites in the fridge does two things: one, it extends their shelf life; and two, it helps them keep their shape.
They can stay fresh for one week if stored in a plastic container, such as a tupperware or a ziploc bag. If you use an airtight glass container like this tupperware, they can stay fresh for up to two weeks!
I don't recommend substituting another type of flour in place of the Cheerios. I originally tested with oat flour and didn't like the texture at all, and I haven't tried any other option. Luckily, Cheerios are widely available and very affordable, so it shouldn't be too hard to get some!
Simply use your favorite vegan protein powder and vegan chocolate chips. You can also omit the chocolate chips completely if you want!

I hope you love these gingerbread protein balls as much as I do! I've been snacking on them for the last few weeks and I won't be tired of them anytime soon!
