Flour, sugar and dairy free chocolate fudge bites

My next door neighbour Jo has, for some reason I will never understand, given up flour, sugar and butter for lent. Insanity!

I didn’t really like the idea of going 40 days without taking her any baked goods, so when I saw these German chocolate fudge bites on Chocolate Covered Katie I knew instantly they would have to be made for Jo.

As well as being free of pretty much everything bad for you, they’re also incredible quick and easy to make, and use just four ingredients (possibly four of my favourite ingredients) AND are only 50 calories each!

Sounds too good to be true, but they really do work!

Flour, sugar and dairy free chocolate fudge bites (recipe adapted from Chocolate Covered Katie)

Makes 15 small bites

  • 120g pitted dates
  • 50g pecan nuts
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder, plus extra to coat
  • 2tbsp desiccated coconut

Put all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until everything is well-chopped and well-mixed. Transfer the mixture into a bowl and knead until it comes together. Roll out 15 small truffle-sized balls, and chill in the fridge for half an hour. Roll each bite in more cocoa powder before serving.

  1. I have never seen this approach to decadent chocolatey truffles – that are still so healthful! Love the concept (and must have missed Katie’s post)… I am featuring this post in today’s Friday Food Fetish roundup (with a link-back and attribution), but please let me know if you have any objections. It’s a pleasure following your creations…

  3. I just put my second batch in the fridge to chill. Thank you for posting this. I just found out it have severe food allergies and these are perfect for me and taste great. They totally satisfy that chocolate urge.

    • I’m so glad you like them and they work for your allergies! Getting that chocolate fix is pretty essential!

      I need to post a few more ‘free-from’ recipes really, let me know if you have any requests…
