No-Bake Nutty Bites

February 13, 2012

These little gluten-free, dairy-free bites are just the right size for when you want a small treat, without worrying about completely sabotaging your nutrition endeavors. I save these type of goodies for weekend-only treats.
The chocolate* used is also dairy-free, soy-free, gluten-free and adds a nice touch, but is completely optional.
2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
½ tsp sea salt
¼ cup raw honey
½ cup toasted sunflower seed oil

1 tblsp vanilla
1 cup gluten, soy & dairy free chocolate chips (optional)
In a large bowl, combine almond flour and salt
In a smaller bowl, combine sunflower seed oil, honey and vanilla
Stir wet ingredients into dry
Shape into log size
Wrap tightly in plastic wrap
Chill dough in freezer for 30 minutes
Slice log into 1/4-inch thick slices (I cut those slices in half for smaller portion-sized treat, but it’s up to you)
Bake at 350° on a parchment lined baking sheet for 5-7 minutes or until brown around the edges
Cool for ½ hour
If you decide to dip into chocolate:
In a small saucepan, melt chocolate over very low heat, stirring continuously
Remove saucepan from heat and one by one, dip into chocolate
Set to cool on a parchment lined baking sheet –refrigerate to harden chocolate
I find that they tend not to crumble easily if I keep these treats in the fridge
*(You can find Good Life brand of chocolate chips @ your local Nutrition store or Harmons)
