Vegan Marzipan Bites (Sugar + Gluten Free)

Picutured: vegan and sugar free marzipan bites made using almonds and coconut

I whipped these up in less than twenty minutes and they are delicious and very easy to make. The measurements are as accurate as I can remember as I made it up as I went along, so just see what consistency you like.

If it is too wet (from the coconut oil) just add more ground almonds.


  • 1 packet ground almonds (500g)
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 8-10 chopped dried apricots
  • 1 tsp almond essence
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1-2 tbsp honey/agave/sweetener syrup of choice

Optional (for coating)

  • Melted dark choc (refined sugar free if you want them to be completely sugar free)
  • Desiccated coconut



  • Melt coconut oil – it doesn’t take long so just heat gently until it is liquid
  • Add all of the ingredients together (except chocolate) and mix well
  • Form into small balls
  • Store the almond balls in the fridge/freezer as you prepare topping
  • Melt chocolate (if using) in a bowl placed over boiling water
  • Dip the almond balls into the chocolate and sprinkle with the coconut
  • Place in freezer and allow to harder.
  • Vegan marzipan bites complete- enjoy 🙂

There are so many variations and additions you can do to these so let me know what you come up with.

I hope you like them.
