Salted caramel bites

I’m a little bummed that I got so behind on the blog these past 2 weeks. I have so much lined up, but haven’t had the time to sit and write up the posts. I should have been a month ahead of schedule, but life happened. I’ve also been dealing with some health issues. Nothing serious, but still pretty bothersome at times. I’ve had to change my diet drastically. At the moment I have to stay away from gluten and dairy. Fun times. It’s all good though. I’m making it work!

So while I work on getting all of those fun posts scheduled I figured I’d share a new recipe of mine. A few weeks ago I was scouring the supermarket for things I CAN eat and my husband stumbled upon these delicious Salted Caramel Bites. They were so good! And perfect for snacking on the go. Especially now that I can’t eat anything if I’m out and happen to get hungry. The problem? Well, I only purchased the one bag so that I could try them out and I ran out within a few days. The nearest store to purchase these delicious bites is over an hour away! And when I finally made it to the supermarket again they were sold out! So I tried to make my own.

It’s usually pretty easy to find copycat recipes online, but I couldn’t find a single recipe for these bites anywhere! So I went into my kitchen where I had everything on hand and dumped it all into my food processor and ended up with something VERY similar! I think lightly toasting the coconut brings these bites to life. I know it doesn’t look like much, but these sorts of bites/balls usually don’t yet still taste great! This recipe is a keeper for sure! You can follow this link to my recipe. Enjoy!

  5. Ugh! This looks so damn good, Lisa! Question, what’s the substitute for almond flour and coconut sugar?

    • Thank you! For the almond flour some suggest finely grinding sunflower seeds. But I feel like that won’t make for a good ‘caramel’ anything lol. Maybe finely grinding some oats? But I haven’t tested that out so I’m not sure how well it would work, but I imagine it would be tasty. As for the coconut sugar you can use brown sugar.

  6. Yummy recipe Lisa ! I will also try it.
    Even I start feeling sad when I am not able to stick to my schedule, take care and happy writing dear ! :)
    Have a beautiful day !

    Sorry to hear about your health! Changing your diet is no fun, but after a little adjusting it’s not so bad anymore.
