4 Chocolate Link Loves
Updated: Nov 19, 2020
It’s February, it’s cold, I can see the snow piling up outside the window, and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I’ve been thinking about 2 things…baking and chocolate. I thought I’d share a few of the “chocolatey” treat recipes we enjoy. Each of these is gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free; all have an egg-free option. Stay warm and happy baking, my friends!
Healthy No-Bake Cookies
Okay, so obviously, this one isn’t a "baked" good, but it’s definitely chocolatey. It’s a current obsession inspired by a friend who made similar cookies at a Christmas party. These cookies are delicious, easy to toss together and they’re free of gluten, dairy, egg, and refined sugar!
Paleo Gluten-Free Blender Banana Muffins
The first time I made these muffins, I was a little unsure about the “secret” ingredient. The pictures looked so enticing that I made them anyway. They turned out great and no one had any idea that they were made with….Cauliflower!!!!! These muffins are gluten- and dairy-free and although the recipe doesn't specify, I have successfully made them using aquafaba to make them egg-free. If you don't feeling like whipping up a batch of these, just go stare at pictures of them; they're just beautiful!
Overnight Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding
Yes, another recipe that doesn’t require baking, but again, it’s chocolatey. This pudding is YUM and because it’s made with chia seeds, very nutrient dense. Chia seeds are high in fiber, Omega-3 fats, magnesium, calcium and contain about 4 grams of protein per ounce! The pudding isn't terribly sweet, so you might add an extra tablespoon of maple syrup or add some fruit to eat it with if you like your treats sweeter. It’s also free of gluten, dairy, egg, and refined sugar.
Flourless Chocolate Chip Chickpea Blondies
If you ask me to come to your house for dinner, the chances that I bring these as a dessert contribution are pretty good. They don’t last long around here and with the sea salt added to the top--Oh. My. Goodness! Give them a try; you won’t regret it. They are free of gluten, dairy, egg, and refined sugar.
