Vegan Lebkuchen Cookie Bites

Raw,Vegan, Refined Sugar-Free


Lebkuchen filling:

  • 1 heaped cup of nuts (I used almonds and walnuts but hazelnuts go well here too).
  • 1 cup of Medjool dates, soaked, rinsed, drained, pitted and chopped
  • ½ cup of rolled oats
  • Zest of 1 organic orange
  • Zest of 1 organic lemon
  • Juice of 1 fresh organic orange
  • ½ tsp of organic Ceylon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp of organic ground clove, ground
  • ¾ tsp of organic ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp of organic ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp of organic ground cardamom
  • 1-2 TBSP of raw cacao powder (depending on how chocolatey you like your bites – we like it chocolatey, so I used 2 TBSP here)
  • pinch of rock salt
  • about 3 TBSP of additional nuts, chopped in small pieces.

Chocolate coating:

  • ½ a block of organic dark of chocolate (at least 70% – which is what I used here)


  1. Soak your dates for at least 10 minutes in warm water.
  2. Process your heaped cup of nuts into nut meal.
  3. Process your oats into oat flour.
  4. Add your orange and lemon peel, spices, salt, orange juice and cacao powder and process into a sticky dough.
  5. Add the rest of your nuts and combine well.
  6. Form little bite-sized balls, put on fridge-proof baking tray and set aside.
  7. In the meantime, in a small saucepan melt your dark chocolate over a water bath until completely melted. Be sure to stir frequently and careful for the hot water not to pour over into your melting chocolate.
  8. Dip your Lebkuchen bites into the melted chocolate to cover and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes or until your chocolate layer has hardened.
  9. Enjoy how incredibly delicious your healthy life can taste!
