Seriously, these no bake goodies are perfect for the holidays. That is usually my high demand time for needing an easy gluten free dessert.
The last-minute cookie exchange invitation, your sweet tooth, and more! You can adapt the recipe to make them allergy friendly, or even paleo and vegan friendly.
Holy Schmoly one week left till December and I totally forgot to share this November’s No Bake Healthy Bites recipe. Actually, this easy cake bites recipe is 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.
5-ingredient cake bites
To make the recipe, all you need are 5 gluten free ingredients:
- Almond flour
- Gluten free cake mix
- Nut butter – I use almond butter but any variety will work. For a NUT FREE option, you can use sunflower butter
- Vanilla extract
- Maple syrup
To make them, just mix the gluten free cake batter with the almond flour, roll, coat with melted chocolate, and freeze.
Then, you’ll have no bake cake bites ready to give away or devour.
3 reasons to make this recipe
REASON ONE – no baking required.
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 an easy gluten free dessert that doesn’t require an oven (no bake) and that kids can make (5 ingredients, for less mess)! All hail the no bake gluten free cake bites recipe!
REASON TWO – Kid and allergy friendly.
But, during the holiday season, you may have younger family members and/or non-drinkers around. So, we replace booze with chocolate! You will never hear me say that’s a bad thing.
REASON THREE – Celebrations require cake.
I am celebrating, and what better way to celebrate than with cake? You see, I’ve redesigned, retested, and updated both of my Healthy Bites ebooks.
Simpler recipes, easy to read, adaptable for certain allergies, etc. It’s the perfect ebook for holiday gift-giving or whenever.
Or, 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!
A guilt-free holiday treat. The simple 5 ingredients in the cake bites are actually “healthier” than real cake!
Okay the white chocolate isn’t healthy, but you can buy 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.
NOTE: You can also use my vegan/paleo dark chocolate magic shell to coat the cake bites. 😉
Okay now that I’ve gotten all my objectives out of the way, let’s get the cake balls rollin’. Literally!
