No Bake Blueberry Muffin Bites

I am all about no bake during our hot August days. These mini muffin style treats taste a lot like blueberry muffins, but no baking is necessary. They are a great little summertime treat. Especially good for those who appreciate healthy fats. Easy Peasy too. The almond and blueberry flavors go together really well.

No Bake Blueberry Muffin Bites


1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup coconut oil, in liquid state
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
2 tbsp Stevia blend or sweetener of choice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, combine almond butter and coconut oil until smooth. Stir in blueberries, coconut, sweetener and vanilla. Spoon into mini muffin papers and freeze. Makes 15.

Each has 119 calories      2 g net carbs (1 g fiber)      12 g fat

So it doesn't get any easier than that, right? I used a neutral flavored coconut oil, Jarrow Organic. That let the vanilla, almond and blueberry favors not be overpowered by the coconut. You could use any oil though. If you love the coconut flavor, go ahead and use an oil that retains the coconut flavor. I also used a stevia blend for my sweetener. The recipe is an equivalent to sugar ratio. Use any sweetener you like, and feel free to adjust to taste. Yes, you can just dip your finger in or lick the spoon.

These are so good. But do keep them cold. If it is hot where you are, they will get all gooey melty pretty fast. Since they are just a few bites, no problems just gobbing them up straight from the freezer or fridge.  I usually keep my coconut oil treats in the freezer for an extra cool treat. But these, I think, are best in the fridge. That way the berries are not frozen solid and more of that fresh blueberry flavor pops in your mouth.


I love that they don't stick to the cupcake papers. I love how fast these are to make. I love the healthy ingredients. What is not to love? Got my snacks for the week!

I just made these and immediately gobbled down the first one that was solid. Holy deliciousness. I added a little bit of cinnamon as well, and I'm thrilled. Thanks for this recipe, it's going to be my go-to fat bomb!

This looks good. I'd like to try with raspberries, since they are my favorite!

It was spam so I had to remove it.

Laura VanVleet said...

Made these yesterday! They are the bomb! Next batch will have cashews instead of berries!

Charlene Folan said...

Can you remove the blueberries if you want for induction?

Lisa Marshall said...

Sure, berries add a nice touch, but they will be fine without them. Happy induction.

I feel like these have too many carbs. Am I wrong??

Jordan Woodruff said...

with the berries and coconut

Lisa Marshall said...

2 net carbs is too much? These are meant to be limited, as your source for getting in good fats. This is certainly not too high for us.

Michelle said...

Could you substitute MCT oil for the coconut oil?

Lisa Marshall said...

Michelle--no, the coconut oil makes these solid. MCT oil will not set up.

Michelle said...

Ok., thanks for the reply.

Is almond butter a must? Or would some normal grass fed butter be okay?? I have everything for these except that and want to instantly make them! Haha.
