No Bake Chocolate Fudge Red Velvet Cake Bites! Gluten Free red velvet cake bites made with natural superfood ingredients but also super delicious! Healthy, vegan friendly, perfect dessert for ANY occasion! Or for satisfying that snacky sweet tooth. Go ahead, enjoy!
It’s already February! Like whoa! And as I sit here typing up my Healthy Bites Flavor of the Month Post (HELLO –> Chocolate Fudge Red Velvet Cake Bites), it’s 82F for the high today. This 2016 weather is already crazy sporadic. Much like our life right now. But I’m gonna go with it.
You see, I’m not doing a giveaway for Healthy Bites this month. GASP! I know, I’m sorry. But I feel like because my life (and the weather) is sporadic, maybe the giveaways need to be sporadic. Meaning, I want to wait till I can GIVE MORE AWAY. Does that make sense? More VALUE and better QUALITY of prizes to giveaway; when the timing is right. So these Gluten Free Chocolate Fudge Red Velvet Cake Bites, they will be saved for another SUPER high quality sporadic giveaway. I’m working on it. And I’m working on redoing my old healthy bites recipe ebook. Which…. will be up for a sporadic giveaway as well. Anyone want to come help me roll a bizallion balls?
Alright alright. Let’s talk fudge and red velvet cake and superfood. Wait, which one of these doesn’t belong? Haha, probably the superfood. I’m sure you’ve never seen a super food red velvet cake or a cake bite. Well, that’s about to change.
You see, I think I’ve only had red velvet cake only once. And actually, it was in the form of a cupcake, way before my gluten free days. That being said, my goal here with this Valentine’s Day theme recipe was to make a chocolate fudgish (is that a word?) type of no bake gluten free cake bite that was healthier than that cupcake but still smooth as velvet. Pun intended.
Like …… When you take bite it’s taste and texture is kinda like cake and fudge combined. Yes, it’s possible!
Oh and it needed to be dye free! But wait, how do you add RED to red velvet cake without adding dyes or chemicals? Well, you rally up your superfoods!
Dark Brown and Pink = RED! So think DARK CHOCOLATE (COCOA) and any form of red fruit/vegetable powder. Beet, raspberry, strawberry, etc.
Today’s recipe I combine Cocoa with GOJI BERRY POWDER. Goji berry (powder) has so many amazing wonderful superfood properties and it’s basically tasteless so it takes on the chocolate and buttery taste quite well. This is great for those looking to sneak more veggies in their diet/recipes without actually having to taste it! Chocolate
Things to know about GOJI Berry – Besides that it’s fun to say.
- Did you know they are actually a fruit and herb? Ha, go figure.
- They are EXTREMELY HIGH on the ORAC Antioxidant scale. An ORAC value calculates a food’s antioxidant power on a relative scale. Adding these to your diet just might help with athletic performance! RUN BABY RUN!
- Studies have shown that goji juice/berries can help increase energy and gastrointestinal health due to their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties . I’ll eat chocolate fudge red velvet cake bites for that!
- A lastly, Goji is LOADED with trace minerals! In fact, they have 15x more IRON and calcium than spinach. (source)
YES! These really do “take the cake” when it comes to no bake SUPERFOOD dessert cake bites. Am I right?
So here’s my thinking. Are you training for a race? Are you setting new workout goals or health goals in 2016? I think these gluten free chocolate red velvet cake bites just might fit into your diet and keep you SUPER POWERED!
Or you can make them for your Valentine and feel good about it! Either way, you’re winning.
Okay, so tell me… first memory of eating red velvet cake? Was it actual cake or cupcake or cookie? And have you tried goji powder?? I think you’d love! Just sayin..
Cheers to LOVE month!
