Happiness is found in No-Bake Chocolate Fudge Bites!
I always hesitate to put “Gluten Free” or “Dairy Free” in the title of a recipe. Why? Because some people see it and think, “I don’t need to eat gluten free (or dairy free) so I don’t need to look at this recipe.”
No wait! Come baaaaaaack! Do you eat apples? Strawberries? Chicken? Carrots? Then sometimes you eat gluten and dairy free. Right? Because that’s what those foods are, without even having to try.
There are soooo many foods that are naturally gluten and/or dairy free because God made a big variety of food to provide nourishment and balance. I wanted to put “GF” and “DF” in the title of this recipe so that the “GF” and “DF” people would know they could join this party. Everyone wins. Especially because this recipe involves chocolate. Amen and amen.
So gather around all you gluten free and dairy free and I can eat anything people. There are fudge bites to be had! These are cousins to No-Bake Snickerdoodle Bites (which are also GF and DF). Both of these snacks are awesome to have in the fridge for a quick pick-me-up.
Note: I noticed two things about this recipe when I tried them on my family:
- They were too sweet for me but my boys wished they were sweeter. Add or subtract that 1/4 cup honey amount as you wish.
- These tasted a thousand times better after they had been in the fridge an entire day. I don’t know why. Eat them right away if you wish, but chilling these in the fridge for over 24 hours makes these much fudgy-er and tastier.
No-Bake Chocolate Fudge Bites
- 1 cup almond butter or peanut butter
- ¼ cup honey (more if you prefer)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
- ⅓ cup coconut flour
- Mix the ingredients together in a bowl until well combined.
- Roll the mixture into teaspoon-sized (or whatever sized) balls.
- Refrigerate before serving.
Have you tried the No-Bake Snickerdoodle Bites yet? These No-Bake Bites are my favorite way to add coconut flour to our diet (which is rich in fiber, protein, and other great nutrients). It doesn’t hurt that they only take a few minutes and little effort to make. :)
We must have been thinking along the same line without even knowing it! I concocted similar to these 2 days ago but instead of coconut flour I used chia seeds ground to a coarse flour in my blender.
And did you know you can sneak all kinds of good stuff in like slippery elm powder for that child having ”an issue”? No, that child didn`t know it either!

This sounds so yummy! Thanks Laura! I have some coarse ground brown rice flour in the fridge I might try with this. I ground the rice flour so I could make homemade gluten free cornbread for my mom. It tasted pretty good. The flour came out coarse because I did not want to adjust the stones on my old grinder. It’s set perfectly for wheat, just the way I like it. Sorry mom…
These are delicious! Or so my family told me. I’m waiting to have mine with iced coffee in a little while. Thanks for a quick, easy, and healthy treat. Just a note, if you reduce the honey the balls will be a little drier. I just used my hands to mix them completely and it worked out well.
These look so yummy Laura!
These are so good!
Just curious if you know how many calories these are? I love making these, and my family can never get enough of them! Great recipe!
Sorry, I have no idea! Probably a lot, but a lot of GOOD and nourishing calories. :)
