Maple Chocolate Chip Toffee Bites are gluten-free, paleo friendly, vegan, no-bake snacks that are just plain delicious! This is a kid-friendly, bite-sized, healthier dessert recipe, perfect for holidays, snacking, and even breakfast. Just sayin….
I’m gonna make this short and sweet today. Actually I’m just going to get to the point. Those things pictured above, those maple chocolate chip toffee bites? They have come and gone twice in our house already. Can you say no-bake bites addict? Yes, that’s us – and my family, because I got them hooked!
Maple chocolate chip toffee bites. No baking required. You guessed it, this are my healthy bites flavor of the month for September. It’s kinda similar to the salted caramel bites, but also very different.
But I have a small confession. I planned this no-bake bites recipe months ago, but I’ve been holding out on you. You see, I made the Paleo Maple toffee it at the beginning of the month just so that I could make these toffee bites later. I know, I’m sneaky. But hear me out.
For one, I really want to make homemade toffee; toffee that is easy to make, and like I said, Paleo friendly. And two, I had this major craving my BEST EVER maple chocolate chip cookies. My dilemma? Trying to save some extra maple toffee so I could actually make these maple chocolate chip toffee bites later.
Anyway, I ended up with just a cup of maple toffee left over. Just enough for making maple chocolate chip toffee bites.
Although I really wish I had made more to begin with. Yes, first world problems, the struggle is real.
This is why am posting a healthy bites recipe at the end of the month. Hey better late than never right? But I don’t think you’ll mind, because I’m really giving you another reason to make that maple toffee.
Have I said the word toffee and maple enough yet? BEST THINGS EVER!
Killing two birds with one stone here. You can make these maple chocolate chip toffee bites, or if you’re like me, you can make a big batch of the toffee, share some with your family, then keep the rest for these bites. Or just keep it all for you.
Yes, I did try to make these bites Paleo friendly with the Paleo maple toffee. But if you’re in a time crunch, you can certainly buy your own toffee bits at the store, and throw it into these bites. Sorry, those are not paleo.
That’s okay, we will then label the maple chocolate chip toffee bites Paleo-ish with a “hint” of white sugar, and a “touch” of some ingredients the caveman really didn’t eat. But shhh…. we won’t tell them. Sound good?
