Chewy Almond Crunch Bites

The only thing I like more than developing recipes is eating the results. As you may know by now, I’m a proud, chronic snacker. I’m always looking for delicious new ways to keep the snacking alive. I somehow had a ton of raw almonds in my pantry (I kept forgetting that I already had them at home, does that ever happen to you?) and decided to whip up these Almond Crunch Bites. It was exactly the sweet treat I was just vying for with my afternoon coffee…

What I love about these bites is that there’s no added sugar and they’re just sweetened up with some juicy medjool dates. Not to mention they’re also vegan, gluten-free, and grain-free! Make these at the beginning of your week and know you’ll always have a sweet snack waiting for you at home…


  • 1/3 cup raw almonds
  • 1/3 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 TBSP chia seeds
  • 7 medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 2 tbsp sliced raw almonds (for topping)
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil


  1. Add almonds, almond butter, shredded coconut, medjool dates, chia seeds, and non-dairy milk in a blender. Pulse until only small bits remain.
  2. Form the dough into balls and place in the fridge on a wax paper covered plate or dish to firm up while you melt the chocolate.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips with the coconut oil in the microwave, in 15 second increments, stirring between intervals to make sure the mixture is smooth.
  4. Remove bites from the fridge and either drizzle with chocolate or roll each of them into the chocolate until they are all fully coated. Once they are all covered or drizzled, place back on a wax paper covered plate to store in the freezer.
  5. Transfer to the freezer for at least 45 minutes or until the chocolate has set. Let thaw for a few minutes before serving! Store in freezer.
