Choconut Bites

A few weeks ago, I saw chocolate coconut butter on HEAB, and CD’s amazing idea of using ice cube trays got me really excited.

I’ve been looking for a new snack to bring to work that would be really tasty, preferably chocolatey, and fairly low in sugar, and this definitely fit the bill.

But as I was getting out my coconut and chocolate, it occurred to me that the nutritional profile of these desserts could be further improved by adding nuts. So I added some sliced almonds and walnut flour to the mix (click here for a nutritional profile of almonds and here for walnuts).

I also used a mixture of dark and milk chocolate. The milk chocolate has a bite out of it for obvious reasons.

Blend or process all ingredients until liquid enough to spoon into your ice cube tray (or, in my case, silicone mini-muffin pan) and put into the fridge for 20 minutes or so. As usual, fix your mistakes by eating them. These turned out So. Good!!!

Enjoy your choconut bites!

I used about 20% chocolate in this batch, but I think it would be very possible to use even less chocolate and still get extremely delicious (and healthy!) results.

Enjoy!

Ohhhhhh what if you did one layer of chocolate+coconut and then another layer of chocolate+nuts? Same nutrition, different take .

So glad you enjoyed - your version looks delicious, and I’m cracking up at the chocolate square missing a bite. That’s so something I would do. ;)

They do have a fudge-like texture, actually - it’s one of my favorite features!

Oh, yum! I managed to miss the original idea on HEAB, but I’m glad I saw it here. Plus, the addition of nuts sounds fab!

MMM! I made mine the way HEAB did, just pouring the chocolate coconut butter into the ice cube tray and dunking two almonds in each one before freezing! So easy and the perfect little dessert:)
