Today I’m sharing these Gluten Free Almond Coconut Cacao Balls. They’re super quick and easy to make with no baking required. Simply because I wanted a quick, tasty and healthy treat. Also we have a stack of almond meal that needed to be used.
Actually we still have a lot of almond meal in the kitchen so feel free to send me any tasty recipes you might have with almond meal as a key ingredient.
Happy Wednesday to you all, The Naughty Dietitian xoxo
If you’re a serious peanut butter fan, you will love these no bake Gluten Free Nut Butter Balls!
I was experimenting with a new recipe following my success with the Orange Cacao Balls I made a few weeks back. Whilst I can’t claim they are as healthy as the orange cacao balls, they certainly taste just as good.
Filled with peanut & almond butter, walnuts, dates, cocoa/cacao powder, a splash of chia seeds and small amount of biscuits (for the crunch factor) they bring together that rich nut taste.
A worthy afternoon treat and slightly healthier than eating peanut butter straight from the jar…
Over the last few weeks I’ve noticed a theme with my recipes containing citrus or summer fruit, including these Gluten Free Orange Cacao Bliss Balls. Think it’s the warm weather inspiring me but either way, these orange cacao balls have been a great new addition to morning/afternoon tea.
The fresh orange juice and zest is a refreshing twist to the standard coconut and cacao flavour and they really hit the spot when craving something sweet! Added bonus these orange cacao bliss balls are packed full of healthy ingredients.
Guess I can’t hide the dietitian in me all the time and occasionally like to share a healthier recipe with you all. Don’t hold it against me.
In my family these Gluten Free Chocolate Coconut Balls are known as “Nothings” but you might know these bite size treats as Rum Balls or Golf Balls? They only require 4 ingredients and don’t require any baking which always makes for a great recipe!
They are often made when my family get together to celebrate a Birthday or Christmas. The problem is they always seem to disappear from the table. So these days we make a separate batch for my brother so everyone else gets to enjoy them too!
With thanks to my wonderful Nan and sister for the original recipe I modified to be Gluten Free.
