Guest Post: Grain Free Avocado Sweet Potato Bites

Can you say drool worthy? I know I sure can. These GFASPBites are simply stunning. Grain free has been getting a lot of attraction lately, and it’s recipes like these that I love seeing. While going grain free usually means focusing on eating more vegetables and other clean foods, sometimes a treat is exactly what you need. Our guest bloggers, Jessica Beacom, RDN, and Stacie Hassing, RDN (TheRealFoodRDs.com), are sharing just that with you today.

Ingredients:
½ cup sweet potato purée (1 small sweet potato) or pumpkin purée
1 small avocado
2 eggs
⅓ cup honey
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
3 tablespoons coconut flour
⅓ cup cocoa powder
1½ teaspoons baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup mini chocolate chips, divided
¼ cup walnuts, chopped (optional)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For The Chocolate Glaze
4 ounces bittersweet dark chocolate (at least 60 percent cacao)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

 

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a mini-muffin tin with paper liners or grease with oil.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients except for chocolate chips and walnuts. Blend just until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips and optional walnuts. Fill each mini-muffin liner with batter.
  3. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool for about 5 minutes. Transfer muffins to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  4. While cake bites are cooking, in a glass bowl, melt chocolate and honey in 30-second increments in the microwave; whisk. Whisk in oil until smooth and shiny. Place wire cooling rack with cake bites over a foil-lined baking sheet or parchment. Drizzle glaze over top or dip cake bites into the glaze. Repeat until all cake bites have a glaze topping. If desired, top with walnuts.
