Cinnamon Spice Plantain Protein bites are made with warm winter spices like cinnamon, cloves, and ground anise. These grain free no bake protein bites are paleo and vegan friendly, too!
What makes a recipe successful? I actually think about that a lot when cooking and/or recipe creating. And you know what? To me, it’s about 3 things.
- Does this recipe benefit someone NUTRITIONALLY?
- Does this recipe make someone WANT to cook/ bake or just feel INSPIRED in the kitchen?
- Does this recipe make you want more (meaning taste)!?
Which is why I created healthy no bake bites in the first place. To be able to fuel myself, my family, and others with nutritionally dense gluten free snacks. And to inspire others to make them for their kids, their loved ones, themselves. They are usually pretty easy to make, simple directions, always gluten free, and oh so tasty!
This month’s flavor has that same purpose and function, but in an extra special way. It’s nourishing for these winter months.
I created this healthy bites flavor using my favorite winter spices. It’s basically cinnamon and spice but we will call them Winter Spice plantain bites. Sound good?
Cinnamon, Clove, Ground Anise – > all healing spices with anti-inflammatory properties. a Which means you can keep that immune system working like a charm!
I also made them grain free (with plantain flour) and added in molasses (for that sweet flavor and a boost in iron).
Time to make some cinnamon spice plantain protein bites!

And now comes the “successful” recipe part. I want you all to be able to make these yourself or try them yourself, so I am giving away a batch of Healthy Bites, a $100 gift card to whole foods (thanks to #pathToFit Garmin/Whole Foods) so that you can go buy the ingredients yourself, plus other healthy items and groceries. I’m also going to throw in my Healthy Bites ebook, just for kicks. Sound good?
Thanks for always supporting!
