Holy Schmoly one week left till December and I totally forgot to share this November’s No Bake Healthy Bites recipe. Actually, this one has been so good I almost didn’t want to share. I became… what’s the word? Infatuated with them. What’s not to love? Just 5 ingredients and no baking. SCORE! 5 ingredient no bake cake bites. Gluten free cake bites.
So what happened was that I first created the gluten free cake ball…err bite first, then decided it needed a topping, then decided it needed 2 toppings. I couldn’t stop ya’ll. I was on a ROLL (haha, pun intended). Then I had friends and family taste test. Then I hid the rest from my husband so I could have them. You think I am kidding, but I am not.
But here me out. I do have a purpose for the infatuation. In fact, when creating these gluten free cake bites, I had three main objectives in mind. Besides eating and drooling.
Yep, you’re going to get a sneak peak into my mind.
Everyone and their mother is making cookies and pies. I mean, tis the season. So of course it’s a must! But I wanted to make a gluten free holiday recipe that doesn’t require an oven (no bake) and that kids can make (5 ingredients for less mess) !
I’ve already made boozy gluten free cake bites, and boozy banana bread bites. Maybe I should lay off the booze this month and replace it with say, chocolate coating? Yes, chocolate covered gluten free cake bites. And the option to make paleoish with dark chocolate. I am to please.
I am celebrating! We are celebrating healthy bites! And what better way to celebrate than with cake? You see, I’ve redesigned, retested, and updated both Healthy Bites ebooks. Simpler recipes, easy to read, adaptable for certain allergies, etc. It’s the perfect ebook for the Holidays or whenever. I’m giving away one for free, if you subscribe to this blog thing here. LOL! And the other is just a wee fee for 13 bite recipes. Ahem… or you just search my No Bake archives for a massive amount of gluten free, paleo, and vegan friendly bite recipes.
To have your cake and eat it too! Without the guilt. These simple 5 ingredients that make the cake are actually “healthier” than real cake. GASP! I know. You’re stunned. So there’s almond butter, a gluten free cake mix (or paleo cake mix), almond flour, maple syrup (or honey), vanilla , and then you’re choice of dark chocolate or white chocolate. Okay the white chocolate isn’t healthy, but you can buy the Ghirardelli’s white chocolate. IT’s made with REAL ingredients. No additives. No they didn’t pay me to say that. Although I wish they did. Haha. For dairy free options, you can use vegan white chocolate. yep, it does exist! I usually go for the Enjoy Life Foods Dark chocolate. But all work for gluten free cake, right? RIGHT!
Side note –> You can also use my vegan/paleo dark chocolate magic shell to coat these bad boys. 😉
Okay now that I’ve gotten all my objectives out of the way, let’s get the ball rollin. Literally!
5 ingredient No Bake Gluten Free Cake Bites.
Nutrition Depends on the type of cake mix you use.
This is an estimate per bite with chocolate coating.
I know you all are super busy with last minute Holiday Entertaining and Thanksgiving prep, so just file this recipe under “IT’S A KEEPER!!” Then once you’re sick of turkey and pie, look no further. A cake recipe to make for cookie exchanges, DIY holiday gift (goes great with trail mix DIY gift), parties, or you get your kids to make them and give you a break in the kitchen. Just sayin….
Okay friends, safe travels, eat up, enjoy family, take a nap, then report back Friday for Turkey leftovers. Mmm k?
