No-Bake Cacao Round – Weekend Treats

Last Updated: 10th November 2022 · Written by Donna Mastriani

If you’re in the mood for some chocolatey goodness, we’ve got the recipe for you this week. This gluten, wheat and dairy-free recipe needs no oven and is ready in just 4 steps. For those of you with a nut allergy or almond intolerance, it does contain almond butter so you’d be better off trying out a replacement.  

Here’s what you’ll need for this weekend pick-me-up;

Ingredients 

  • 30g coconut flour 
  • 30g almond butter 
  • 30g cacao powder (or cocoa powder) 
  • 60ml applesauce 
  • 60ml water 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 tsp liquid stevia extract
  • 30g cacao nibs 

Description 

  1. Combine the coconut flour, almond butter and cacao (or cocoa) powder into a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. Next, add in applesauce, water, vanilla extract, and stevia. Mix it all thoroughly.
  3. Scoop out the dough and roll them into equal-sized balls.
  4. Coat with cacao nibs and enjoy!

We recommend storing them in the fridge and consuming within 3 days (in case you needed an excuse). If almond butter is off the table for you, another nut or seed-based butter, such as; peanut butter, sunflower seed butter or cashew butter should work well while keeping the recipe vegan too. Tahini (sesame butter) is also a decent choice.
