Chocolate Mint Cookie Fudge Bites (Keto & Gluten Free)

Okay, no matter the season chocolate mint is always on repeat here! I made the easiest chocolate mint fudges using some of my favorite ingredients... healthier, gluten free and low carb! Just the perfect lil' snack bites to pop into your mouth and let me melt inside!


No bake gut friendly and delicious cookie fudge! One of the best parts of this recipe is the no bake part, and the fact that you only need your blender or food processor. You know that I'm all about keeping recipes healthy and easy to make while enjoying the flavor of them as well! This recipe is no different.



About these Chocolate Mint Cookie Fudge Bites:

Okay, these are made with minimal ingredients including: gluten free cookies and cream cheese... sounds good just with that right? But with that I also wanted to include a twist, a fun a de delicious twist by using Simple Mills Sweet Thins in Chocolate Mint that will keep our recipe healthier and gluten free!


To add that extra crunch factor of this recipe I also included some of the low carb chocolate chips, in mint chip of course, the brand I used is ChocZero, but feel free to use the ones you like! These amplifies the chocolate mint flavor and that crunch we all love.


Key Ingredients:

Adding some protein powder for extra thickness and a satisfying filling. I have been also obsessed with the Nuzest Smooth Vanilla Plant Based Protein, their ingredients are always the best and the taste is always delicious too, this smooth vanilla is basically a healthy, dreamy and indulgent vanilla milkshake (keto, vegan and gluten free!).


Make the healthier switch!

Organic cream cheese! I believe that choosing better ingredients makes the difference, and it does! For example by switching to organic cream cheese you get more nutrients since the cow tends to have a better nutrition and you get some probiotics from the cream cheese, double win!

The gut friendly part of these Chocolate Mint Cookie Fudge Bites:

Keeping it gluten free by using the named cookies, and using some organic cream cheese that will add some probiotics to our recipe, optional you can also add some collagen. Personally I love sneaking collagen into my recipes whenever I can, it's just a little extra that boost some nutrients!


The collagen peptides I used are from Marigold because of their quality... grass fed!



Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Chocolate Mint Cookie Fudge Bites:

So we've got our protein, our crunch factor all in this simply and wholesome recipe! As a foodie and nutritionist I believe that the quality of the ingredients can make the difference in our health and also make healthy food more sustainable.


In here we are using products that stick to whole some and nothing artificial... plus no inflammatory ingredients.


Better snack or dessert for ya'! And we are not including sugars, syrups, wheat and instead, healthier cookies made with whole some and non-artificial ingredients. These are just LEGIT AND DELICIOUS.



The full instructions will be below along with the nutritional information per serving. This is just a super easy and flavorful recipe for you to enjoy and your body will love; source of protein, nutrients and flavor!



Overall this recipe is:

  • Low Carb

  • Gluten Free

  • Meal Prep Friendly

  • Delicious!



The end result

Soft and flavorful! With a nice creamy texture that melts into your mouth.. the crushed cookies are just the perfect flavor that add a good crunch along the chocolate chips. A hint of a cheesecake flavor thanks to the organic cream cheese too!


Melts in your mouth! Hard to resist a creamy and cheesy recipe that only requires five steps to make!



You might want to save this recipe because a second batch might be needed here! I shared some of these bites with my friends but they were just too good as my afternoon snack after crossfit or dessert that I had to bake some more.

Pro tip: You can also drizzle some melted chocolate to make them even prettier and tastier!
