Note: The Happy Gluten-Free Vegan has recently done away with all Google ads. Instead we have created beneficial partnerships with upstanding companies that we believe bring value to our readers. Visiting our partners helps keep the Happy Gluten-Free Vegan free for everybody. 🙂

It seems that the biggest challenge in eating both vegan and gluten-free is finding recipes that are both, and that is where we often have to get creative. One of our favorite gluten-free cookbooks is Cooking with Coconut Flour by Bruce Fife, N.D. Unfortunately, while all of the ingredients are sans gluten, most of his recipes contain eggs and honey.

We’ve taken one of our favorite recipes from the book, chocolate almond coconut clusters, and tweaked the recipe just a bit to make it vegan, and we think you’ll be delighted with the results.

The Happy Gluten-Free Vegan is thrilled to partner with No Cow,
the BEST vegan, gluten-free protein bars!

Mix together the peanut butter, rice syrup, coconut oil and salt, and then stir in the coconut flour and mix further, until fully blended. Using your hands, fold in the flaked coconut, almonds and chocolate chips. Roll the dough into balls of about 1 1/2 inches, and place then on a cookie sheet that has been lightly greased. Flatten the balls down until they reach a diameter of approximately 2 inches. Place the cookies in the oven and bake for approximately 12 minutes, or until they are a nice golden brown color. Cool before removing them from the cookie sheet so that they have time to set.

Grab a glass of cold almond milk, and enjoy!
