These Chocolate-Covered Raspberry No-Bake Cookie Bites are all that and more!
And I've been so excited to bring you this recipe!
My friend Lindsey, who writes and edits here at Traditional Cooking School — and who keeps a lovely blog herself at Today in Dietzville — came out with her new eCookbook Nourishing No-Bake Treats. It's gorgeous and includes 12 healthy, allergy-friendly, easy, no-bake treat recipes (#bitesofgoodness).
I looked through the book, figuring out which cookie I'd like to make first.
Of course, it was too hard to choose and I ended up making 3 kinds — Chocolate-Covered Raspberry, Salted Caramel & Dark Chocolate, and Orange & Dark Chocolate! (All of which took me less than a half hour with only a few dishes to clean up, by the way…)
Lindsey gave me permission to share one of my favorites with you… and I chose the Chocolate-Covered Raspberry Cookie Bites. They taste just like raspberries and cream!
I tell ya' though… ask me tomorrow and I'll say one of the others is my favorite! They're all. that. good.
Below you'll find the recipe for the Chocolate-Covered Raspberry cookie bites. So beautiful, right? And incredibly easy (no-bake). And delicious. And nourishing. Allergy-friendly. Just what you want in a cookie!
No-Bake Chocolate-Covered Raspberry Cookie Bites
Shared with permission from Lindsey Dietz's Nourishing No-Bake Treats. Modified just a bit from the Chocolate-Covered Cherry original recipe.
- 1-1/2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut, plus additional for sprinkling on top
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2/3 cup fresh or frozen raspberries, divided (or other fresh or frozen berry)
- 1/4 cup raw honey
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup Trim Healthy Mama stevia-sweetened sugar-free chocolate chips
Makes 12 to 15 cookie bites.
Combine coconut, coconut oil, 1/3 cup raspberries, honey, vanilla, and salt in a high-powered blender or food processor. Process on low-medium speed until the dough begins to fold in on itself.
Roughly chop remaining 1/3 cup raspberries and fold into the dough. (Wardee's notes: Or add the whole berries and pulse a few times until they're chopped and incorporated into the dough, but not blended smooth.)
Using a 1-tablespoon dough scoop, drop balls of raw dough onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Freeze for 10 to 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt chocolate over a double boiler, whisking occasionally until smooth.
Remove bites from the freezer. Spoon melted chocolate over the frozen bites. Sprinkle with additional shredded coconut, if desired. Return to the freezer for 10 more minutes. Serve.
Store in the fridge or freezer in a covered container or zip-top bag.
Note: Replace raspberries with strawberries or cherries for other chocolate-covered berry variations!
