Because sometimes, transporting an entire cake is a pain in the ass. These are my solution. Cake bites! Ever had them?? If you have not, you sure are missing out. Luckily, I have provided a healthy version of the scrumptious cake bites, easily one of my favorite desserts! I was super excited as I was making these and hoping they would turn out delicious. And that they did. Enjoy!
¼ cup coconut flour
½ cup almond meal flour
2 Tbsp. chocolate chips
2 Tbsp. baking stevia or xylitol
½ tsp. baking powder
3 Tbsp. plain greek yogurt
1 Tbsp. liquid coconut oil
1 large egg
¼ cup cooked sweet potato
¼ cup melted chocolate chips, optional
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Add greek yogurt, coconut oil, sweet potato, & egg to a blender or food processor. Blend until mixture is smooth. Add the remainder of the cake bite ingredients to a mixing bowl and pour in the wet mixture. Mix together until well combined.
2. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray. Make 18 even balls from the mixed cake batter and place them on the baking pan. Bake in the oven for 13-16 minutes. Let cool slightly then top each cake bite with melted chocolate topping if desired.
*Note : I used a mini ice cream scooper to make the cake balls to ensure they were all the same size.
