No-Bake Chocolate-Coated Red Velvet Cake Pops [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
You'd never guess that these little bites of decadence are grain-free! In this recipe, Medjool dates are blended with almond and coconut flour to create rich little bites of red velvet cake. The chocolate coating is entirely optional, but it takes everything to the next level.

No-Bake Chocolate-Coated Red Velvet Cake Pops [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Serves

10

Ingredients

  • 1 small roasted beet (or cut a large one in half)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 4 soft pitted Medjool dates
  • 1 tablespoon full-fat coconut milk, or other non-dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons vegan homemade mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 85% dark chocolate bar, roughly chopped
  • 10 cake pop sticks

Preparation

  1. Prep a baking sheet or large cutting board with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, combine all ingredients from beet to vanilla and pulse until smooth. It should resemble red velvet cookie dough.
  3. If adding chocolate chips, remove the blade from the processor, and fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula. Scoop out cookie dough using a scoop or tablespoon, and roll into your hand to form a ball and set on parchment paper. Place cake bites in the refrigerator.
  4. Heat a saucepan with a few inches of water over high heat and add chocolate to a heatproof bowl.
  5. Place the bowl of chocolate over the saucepan and melt chocolate, stirring occasionally.
  6. Remove cake bites from the refrigerator and insert one cake pop stick into each one. Carefully dip each cake pop into the melted chocolate mixture and place back on the parchment paper.
  7. Place in the refrigerator for the chocolate to set for about 15-20 minutes. Remove and serve in a jar, if desired.

Notes

If your dates are not soft, simply soak them in hot water for about 5 minutes.

They have beets in them because they serve as a healthier alternative to food coloring. They give the cake pops their redness.

I would assume that if anything, you would only taste the smallest amounts of it.
