These collagen gingerbread bites are basically gingerbread truffles in bar form.  They have a soft, chewy gingerbread flavored filling and a dark chocolate coating.  These bars are high in protein, low in sugar, Paleo friendly and dairy free.




  • 1 oz cacao butter
  • 1/2 cup almond butter (unsweetened, unsalted)
  • 2 Tbsp Manuka honey
  • 1 Tbsp molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup collagen peptides
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp salt



  1. Make the filling:  Place cacao butter in a small sauce pan and melt on the stove top, over low heat. 
  2. Once fully melted, remove the pan from the stove top and add in the almond butter, honey, molasses and vanilla.  Stir until smooth.
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients: collagen, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir with a spatula until well combined.
  5. Line an 8" x 4" loaf pan with foil and pour the filling into the pan.  Use the spatula to spread the filling to the edges and smooth out the top.
  6. Place the filling in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to set.
  7. Make the Coating: Melt the dark chocolate on the stove top, over low heat.
  8. Remove the filling from the freezer and cut into pieces (I cut into 18 square pieces).  Dip the fillings into the dark chocolate, coating them completely.  Set them on a sheet of parchment paper for the chocolate to set.
  9. After all of the truffles have been dipped, drizzle the remaining chocolate over the top and add a pinch of flaked sea salt.  (I poured the leftover chocolate into a small plastic bag, cut a hole in the end and piped it over each chocolate bite.)
  10. Store in fridge or freezer.
