No Bake Fudgy Snack Bites

In honor of Valentine’s Day and the fact that I literally want to indulge in all.the.chocolate. I thought I’d better share a yummy chocolatey snack that I have been enjoying the past couple of weeks…No Bake Fudgy Snack Bites.

I absolutely love having little bites around in the fridge or freezer for snacks or sweet treats, and a couple of weeks ago I got a little carried away while experimenting with snack bite recipes.

Typically, when I make bites I use almond butter or cashew butter but unfortunately those nuts are high FODMAP which means they may irritate my tummy.  I needed to find an alternative to almonds and cashews, so I thought I would blend up some walnuts (which are low FODMAP approved!).

The walnut butter was absolutely delicious, super easy to make, and tasted AMAZING when mixed into these little chocolatey bites.  Win, win, win!

I used raw cacao powder to give the bites their chocolatey flavor.  Raw cacao powder is made by cold pressing unroasted cocoa beans. Unsweetened cocoa powder is made by roasting the raw cacao at high temperatures which unfortunately removes a lot of the nutritional value from the cacao.

Luckily, it’s pretty easy to find cacao powder at sites like iherb.com or at stores like Marshalls (<–crazy, but they actually have a pretty wide selection of health foods!)

Ok, now for this tasty recipe!

Comments

  1. These look divine and I love the ingredients list – far better than that of my favorite Valentine’s Day treat…Reese’s PB hearts!! 🙂

  2. These look great! I’m obsessed with coconut right now so I think they’ll be right up my street 😉 Are walnuts easier to blend than other nuts? My blender took into a fit when I tried to make hazelnut butter last week, eep!
