They say puppies are a “bundle of joy”. Or is that babies? Or is that peanut butter stuffed dates? I can’t remember. But actually I think that phrase should be reserved for gingerbread bliss balls, and gingerbread bliss balls only. Holiday cookie flavor rolled up inside a perfect bundle of snack bite joy–that’s what these are!
Besides all the spices and sweet stuff, these little guys are filled with extra joy because they are from a new company called Figberry. Figberry is a monthly subscription box that sends you everything you need to make a different delicious flavor of healthy energy bites every month. It was founded by my friend Nisha (a.k.a. the colorful creative queen behind @rainbowplantlife on Instagram) and Kori, and I was so excited to get the chance to try it out. Especially since the flavor happened to be gingerbread, and I think we all know how I feel about that!
But before I tell you any more, allow me to show you…
I love that there is none of the pesky measuring that is usually involved with making your own homemade snacks, but they are still just as healthy as homemade! And you still get to eat that leftover dough when you inevitably end up with a chunk left that is too small to be a ball but too big to waste. That seems to happen to me every time…coincidence? Probably not. I also love that the ingredients are just as wholesome and high quality as I use in my own recipes. It’s like all the perks of homemade snacks but a lot less work, and I am totally on board with that. Plus the surprise of a new flavor every month is exciting too!
If someone wanted to pre measure, individually wrap, and affix with cute little labels all my ingredients on a regular basis, then all I would say to that is please and thank you! That’s the sort of scenario I dream about, so thanks Figberry for making that dream come true even if it was just this time.
These little bundles of gingerbread joy are totally vegan, refined sugar free, and couldn’t be any more scrumptious! If you are intrigued by the idea of delivered-to-your-door spherical snacking, you can check out the Figberry website for all the details and subscribe -> HERE
And did I mention they are really really yummy on top of Pumpkin Pie Nice Cream…but what isn’t!?

You are the sweetest, -Natalie! Thank you so much for your sweet words and I’m so happy you like the gingerbread bliss balls! It’s probably my favorite flavor too 🙂 And yeah, I’m always snacking on extra bits when I’m recipe testing. How can I not? 🙂
I loved these little guys and just the whole process and concept–so much fun! I can’t wait to see Figberry grow and spread the healthy sweet snacking goodness. I was definitely glad it happened to be gingerbread the month too/ If ever you need someone to “test” other flavors for you, you know where to find me haha 😉
Your photos are gorgeous! Thanks so much for testing our our figberry bites. Glad you enjoyed them!!
Thank you Kori so very much for letting me try them out, I absently love the concept and wish you two tons of success! And a happy holiday 🙂

oooh, how perfect! 🙂 And I think I’ll make a “bundle of joy” exception for fennec fox kits 😀 but otherwise, I’ll take little figgy bites for my choice of bundle of joy any day ?
These sound yummy, and I’m kind of excited to see another blogger do this as I’ve been dreaming of doing something like this one day (when I have that magical thing called “time” ?). How very awesome for Nisha!
Just had to google “fennec fox kits” and you are SO totally right–that is definitely a bundle of joy! ??? It’s so neat to see entrepreneurial ventures like this start up 🙂

Ok, these look so yummy! And totally reminds me of the cake in a crate concept of sending out everything pre-measured! I love the idea of sending out a different flavor every month, that would be so exciting! And the fact these are gingerbread, one of my favorite flavors ever, is a dream! Ginger belongs in so many things. I just made some sweet ginger lemonade today in fact! The only thing missing is these adorable gingerbread bliss balls to go with them!
Yes so similar!! I’ve had lots of measuring-free treats lately and I am loving it 😀 Oooh ginger lemonade sounds fabulous, I love that combo and I just love lemonade in general. These + a lemon coconut butter drizzle…mmm that would be heaven!
