These easy No-Bake Fudgy Quinoa-Chia Bites are a fudgy bite of chocolate heaven.  They are naturally sweetened and loaded with healthful ingredients like quinoa, chia seeds, cacao powder and any nut or seed butter.  They are soy-free, gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and peanut-free with a nut-free option.


Units Scale


  1. Line a small baking sheet or any flat surface with wax or parchment paper.
  2. Add all ingredients to a medium sized mixing bowl. Stir well to combine.
  3. Use a 1.5 tablespoon retractable scoop to create tiny bite-sized spoonfuls and place onto the lined baking sheet (9-10 total). Place baking sheet on a flat surface in the freezer and allow to set for 3 hours until bites are fully hardened. I usually leave overnight and enjoy the next day.
  4. Enjoy straight out of the freezer. The fudgy bites will start to soften at room temperature after about 7-10 minutes. I typically take them out one at a time and enjoy immediately.


*I like the flavor better with unsweetened cocoa powder.

**Be sure your nut or seed butter is runny and not hardened.  If it is a new jar stir well to fully incorporate the oils.  My favorite is raw almond butter from Trader Joe's.

Pro Tip: sprinkle flaky sea salt on top for that salty, sweet chocolate combo that never disappoints!
