Wouldya look at these cuties? Simply bursting with chocolate heaven and minty freshness. Such a divine combination, truly.

The texture of these no bake bites is simply INSANE. And they stay good for over a week in the fridge! What a dream.

I used to make my bites with nuts and dates in the food processor. That’s all fine and dandy, but there’s something sensational about being able to whip these up in a mixing bowl.

This recipe stemmed from my matcha cookie bites. The cool thing about these gems is that you can swap the nut butters and extracts to make whatever flavor profile your little heart desires!

Ditch the cashew butter for peanut and the peppermint extract for vanilla and BOOM, buckeye balls. Magic!

Ingredient tips and substitutions

Almond flour: Ideal for sweet flavor and moist texture. You want super fine blanched, not almond meal (which has the skins). Don’t swap out the flours as you won’t get the same results.

Oat flour: Another favorite gluten free flour of mine, I love the cookie-like flavor it adds. You can also make your own by grinding old-fashioned oats in the Nutribullet or food processor.

Cacao: Chocolatey goodness and loaded with disease-fighting antioxidants! You can use regular unsweetened cocoa powder, too.

Cashew butter: This lends the most cookie-like, neutral flavor, but you can also use almond butter with similar results.

Chocolate plant protein: For a protein boost and some sweetness! Aim for one made with rice and pea protein like this or this. I have not tried these with whey so I’m not sure about the results.

Maple syrupThese bites are lightly sweetened with my favorite natural liquid sweetener. You could also use honey or agave.

Peppermint extract: For minty flavor! Or just use vanilla extract for regular chocolate bites.

Why yes, you can indeed! If you’d rather smush this mixture into a loaf pan and slice into bars versus rolling into balls, that would also work really well.

Storage tips

I like these best straight from the refrigerator. They’ll last up to a couple weeks! You can also freeze them to prolong shelf life even further.
