Vanilla Cinnamon Snack Bites (Vegan, Gluten-free)

Vanilla Cinnamon Snack Bites (Vegan, Gluten-free)

Vanilla Cinnamon Snack Bites


  • ½ cup crunchy unsweetened almond butter
  • 4 tsp vanilla
  • 8 drops stevia can adjust for desired sweetness
  • 4 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 TBSP ground flax seeds
  • 4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds


  • Mix all wet ingredients in a large bowl (almond butter, vanilla, stevia, maple syrup) until thoroughly blended. The mixture should become sticky.
  • In a separate small bowl, mix the dry ingredients ( ground flax seeds, cinnamon, chia seeds).
  • Add the dry bowl ingredients to the wet bowl and mix and mash with a fork. When that becomes too difficult, pick it up with your hands and start creating a ball of dough that feels a bit oily on the outside.
  • Almond butter brands may vary, so if the texture seems to wet, you can add a little more flax seed.
  • Take a ½ TBSP measuring spoon, and scoop out a chunk of the dough. Use your finger to push the dough into the spoon so that its packed and clear any excess off the top.
  • Use one finger to gently push on one side so that it slides out of the spoon and you are left with a bite size piece that is round one one side and flat on the other.

Let’s be clear. Snacks should be:

  • Quick
  • Easy
  • Delicious
  • Satisfying
  • Brain Fuel
  • Low in sugar

That’s why I loooove these little vegan snack bites. They are full of Omega-3 fatty acids which are super important for brain health. They are also full of protein and healthy fat so they’ll keep you satisfied much longer than a carbohydrate-rich snack and will help keep your blood sugar more balanced. On top of that, they are low in added sugar (1 gram per piece, from maple syrup), vegan, gluten-free, super yummy and only take 15 minutes to make. Score!

Whether you are looking for a healthy bite to satisfy that post-meal sweet craving, or just need something quick to hold you over until your next meal, these bites will do the trick! And if you’re a vegetarian, it’s an easy way to get your daily dose of Omega-3’s, sans-fish.
