Well guys. I feel like we should in the week with more classic treats. It’s been that kind of week here at our house. A little rocky … A Rocky road (see what I did there?)
In fact, I might’ve gone overboard on the chocolate coconut frosting on my vegan white cake, but hey, when life hands you frosting, you FROST everything. Okay I’m exaggerating, but you can relate right? Speaking of rocky road and coconut….tad dah!! April’s Healthy Bite Flavor is here!
Gluten Free No Bake Coconut Rocky Road Peanut Butter Bites!
If you couldn’t already tell, I’ve been quite obsessed with toasted coconut and marshmallow lately. There’s just something about it that just screams summer nights and campfire memories. Even though we’re not in summer yet, it already feels like summer in Texas. That’s normal though. Come Summer time, it will feel like you’re living on the equator, but i digress.
Main focus here.. Healthy bites … mmm rocky road… mmm peanut butter bites…. mmm coconut (again).
So let me tell you how these Gluten free coconut rocky road peanut butter bites came about. Mmmm k?
First of all, we have not one, not two, but 6 birthdays in my family at the end of April and beginning of May. It’s like one big birthday fest each week. One of those birthday’s just happens to be for the kiwi. Each year I try to make him a New Zealand dessert (to remind him of home), plus a new American dessert he’s never tried. Well guess what? He hadn’t even heard of Rocky Road flavor before, yet alone tried the ice cream. I gasped! How is this? We’ve been married for over 8 years and I never knew! Shameful wife I am.
It was time to change this.
Being that the rest of my family also loves rocky road and all things peanut butter, I decided we needed to make a mass amount rocky road bites for April and May. That way the kiwi could experience this whole marshmallow, chocolate, nutty experience and so that I looked liked the cool aunt when making these for the kiddos birthdays/celebrations.
Good wife. Cool Aunt. Do I get extra life credit now?
I hope so.
Regardless of my status, these gluten free no bake coconut rocky road peanut butter bites are kinda epic. For one, I used REAL marshmallows. Some of my toasted coconut marshmallows are chopped up inside and so are these all natural marshmallows. I also used peanut flour, peanut butter, coconut flour, allergy friendly chocolate chips, honey, walnuts, and of course unsweetened COCONUT. Think of it as reeses PB cups, coconut chocolate chip cookies, and rocky road combined. Not too shabby eh? But gluten free and dairy free and so much better for you!Print
75-80 calories. 3.7 grams Fat. 10 carbs. 7 sugars. 1.2 grams fiber. 1.5 grams protein
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1/3 cup peanut flour (or protein powder if you don’t have pb powder)
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup natural no stir peanut butter
- 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts
- 1/2 cup mini marshmallows (see notes for natural kind)
- 1/3 mini chocolate chips (enjoy life dairy/gluten free brand)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- First tear your marshmallows into smaller pieces or leave whole if you are using mini. If you are using large one, you can put in a food processor but they want chop much.
- Chop nuts in food processor if they aren’t already chopped . Transfer into a large bowl and add in all the remaining ingredients with the honey being the last . Mix well ( I use my hands) and roll into bite size balls. Coat bites (once frozen) with extra coconut. Makes about 20-21 balls. Freeze or keep in refrigerator to maintain freshness.
For natural marshmallows use SAVION brand.
