Recipe: Lindsay Cotter's Gluten-Free Healthy Bites "Rocky Road Berry Coconut"

January 30, 2014

I’d say my best support for my husband, professional triathlete James Cotter, comes through food and fueling. In an effort to help him fuel properly for pre- and post-workout, I started making him healthy bites. What are healthy Bites? Glad you asked. Healthy Bites are my take on functional gluten free bite sized “ball” snacks. Each bite is made with natural, gluten-free and mostly organic ingredients.  

Today I wanted to share with you one of my STRANGE but GOOD Healthy Bites recipes. Okay it might not be strange to some of you, but it is a rather ODD mix of ingredients.

Rocky Road Berry Coconut Bites  


  • 1 heaping cup of Vegan Marshmallows (I use the ones at Whole Foods chicago Vegan Foods Brand)
  • 2 tbsp. 100% cocoa
  • 2 heaping tbsp peanut flour (can also use coconut flour, ground up peanuts, etc.)
  • 1 serving Berry Protein (Vega Smoothie blend is good here)
  • 2 tbsp. Food for Life Vegan Chocolate chip Minis (Can also use carob chips or 100% dark chocolate chips)
  • 1-2 tbsp. unsweetened coconut (shredded)
  • 3-4 tbsp. of preferred nut butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2-4 tbsp crushed nuts (optional)
  • Optional : cocoa or coconut extract


Grind up your marshmallows in a blender or food processor first. If you have large chocolate chips, go ahead and blend them up with the marshmallows as well. If you are using minis, there is no need, just mix in. Makes sure you grind up the rest of your dry ingredients as well. Transfer into a large bowl and add in nut butter, flours, protein, coconut, and agave. Mix well, and then roll into balls/bites. Makes around 10-12 bites. I then like to roll each of them in some extra coconut and/or cocoa. Freeze right away then store in fridge or freezer to maintain freshness. Store for up to 6 weeks. YUM!!

Well folks, that’s all I got for now. I hope you get to make these. If so, please let me know how they turn out.

You can see more recipes in my BOOK of BITES eBook, which is on the side bar of my site. Or if just feel like spending money, cause let’s face it, we all like to at times, feel free to order some yourself from me. I ship!
