Anyway, we will be posting a recipe of the challenge soon, but in the meantime, grab a bite (or 2) and let’s enjoy life’s simple pleasures. AKA, mini desserts.
These Cinnamon Coconut Refined Sugar Free Cake Bites are quick to make for parties, family gatherings, and gifting to neighbors! Oh, and they’re vegan friendly. Handy dandy, I know.
Think of them as a healthy version of fair food. Part churro, part fritter, part blue ribbon white cake. You’re drooling now, right? For the record, I’m now OKAY with healthier fair food (just gluten free, of course).
Convenience in Gluten Free Cake Mix
The “cake” base of refined sugar free cake bites is made with my vegan coconut cake recipe , minus the citrus and shredded coconut. And of course, there are a few yummy add-ins, since gluten free recipes and no bake bites are my specialty!
We’ve added in melted peanut butter to hold the crumbled cake all together. I might have swirled in some white chocolate as well. A pretty tasty way to bind ingredients, not to toot my own horn!
Then after we form the batter into balls/bites, we roll each bite in crushed gluten free cinnamon graham crackers and drizzle a little white chocolate on top. Gah, these are soooo good!!
Literally OUT OF THIS WORLD! Or if you fancy, add them to a trifle dish with a few dollops of coconut whipped cream.
How to make refined sugar free cake bites
Making the cake bites is SO simple; it takes 3 EASY STEPS.
- FIRST make the gluten free vanilla cake (with vegan option) making sure to NOT to over bake it. The key is to slightly UNDER BAKE the cake so it isn’t dried out, making it easier for rolling.
- Once the cake is cool, add the peanut butter and roll the mixture into balls/bites, roll in graham cracker crumbs and freeze for 20 minutes.
- AFTER they set, drizzle with melted white chocolate.
That’s it! And if you’re curious, I suggest using Ghirardelli or Green and Black Organic White Chocolate! You just can’t beat either. Plus both contain natural ingredients.
BONUS! Lots of healthy fats from the coconut oil and peanut butter, and protein to keep you full! Just had to sneak that in! Okay, find someone to spoil and go make them refined sugar free cake bites, mmm K?
What’s your favorite fair food? Don’t answer that. It might cause extreme cravings.
