Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut Bites

Coconut bites from the Minimalist Baker

These bites are one of my favorite desserts yet! Consider these my lazy-girl’s take on classic Almond Joys. The base is a naturally-sweetened, no-bake coconut cookie dunked in dark chocolate and topped with a roasted almond and more chocolate. Serve these delectable bites as a simple dessert, or enjoy throughout the week as a relatively guilt-free snack!

Typical tailgate parties conjure up visions of grilling meat, dairy-laden dips and egg-based sweet treats that leave very few options for the true vegan. Vegans are accustomed to making do with the odd carrot stick or packing their own snacks at parties, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Luckily, you don’t have to throw out every tailgating guide to create a vegan tailgater’s dream. more→
