A little bite of chocolate is always a good thing.

A little bite of chocolate and almond butter is a very good thing!

Chocolate-Almond Butter Freezer Bites (Sugar-Free!)

These little treats are not only adorable, they’re also healthy! It’s true!

Made with coconut oil and stevia, they are loaded with antioxidants, healthy fats, alkalizing properties, and pure deliciousness.

You could use liquid stevia, but I like the slight crunch of the granulated kind in these candies.

Since coconut oil melts at body temperature, it’s important to keep these nibbles in the freezer or fridge until you’re ready to chomp.

They’ll also start to melt onto your fingertips, but that just means you get to lick off the melted tastiness. Oh, well 🙂

I made these in an empty ice cube tray, but you could use candy trays, or even mini muffin tins. Whatever makes it easier to get them into your mouth quicker will probably be the best choice.

Do you prefer small bites of treats like this, or would you rather have one larger piece (of pie, say)?

How dark do you like your chocolate?

  1. These look GREAT! I love how nut butters get very dense when they freeze. I like my chocolate about 55% cocoa and can go as high as 70%. Any more cocoa than that and I think the chocolate tastes powdery.

  2. Hi Andrea! These look so yummy and I love that they are vegan and sugar-free. These are the perfect snack to enjoy when you need that afternoon sweet pick me up. I always go for a bite of dark chocolate so I don’t feel so guilty 😉

    Great recipe girl!

  3. mmmm chocolate! I love little bites of treats. It’s a great way to keep portion control so you don’t overindulge. I always find when you eat something sweet the first few bites are most satisfying anyways…so a petit treat is always perfect!

    And I like my chocolate DARK! At least 70%, but I have been known to eat the 85% bars sometimes too. But only a tiny bit as it’s so rich. I honestly cant’t wait to make these!!!! using an ice cube tray is genius
