These beautiful bites of gold are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and flourless! The ingredients are simple and wholesome. You can even make this vegan if you want by subbing the egg for a chia egg, although they are a little bit softer this way.

If you’ve never made a chia egg, all you have to do is mix 1 tbsp chia seeds + 2.5 tbsp water. Stir together and let sit for 5 mins. It should start to thicken and be gel-like.

If you want to ensure the recipe is gluten-free/dairy-free/refined sugar-free, make sure you choose the appropriate chocolate chips! The ones I used in this recipe were the Enjoy Life Foods Dark Chocolate Chips which are dairy-free/gluten-free/vegan but do have some cane sugar. These Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips are refined sugar-free.

Notes

You have to let these cool a bit after coming out of the oven, or else they might crumble since there’s no flour involved. Try to give these 10-20 mins to cool down before eating.

Make sure you let them cool completely before storing.

If vegan, substitute the egg for a chia egg.

  • Wow, these are incredible. I’ve made them half a dozen times already, My kids even made them for me at my request for Mothers Day. They are so satisfying, I don’t even miss the Nestle recipe I used before for I tried this one. They are sweet and satisfying and you still feel good after eating them! They are a one bowl recipe which is always nice. I love that you can use basically any kind of nut butter and chocolate chips or carob chips. They are good hot but even better cool, a pleasurable treat for days. I just came to print out the recipe so I always have it handy.

    • Thank you so much Heather! It really means a lot to me that you took the time to leave a review. I appreciate it! 🙂
