No-bake Cocoa Squares (Gluten-Free)

No-bake Cocoa Squares (Gluten-Free)

Once again, an excellent recipe for a no-bake healthy alternative to a sweet dessert. For all lovers of cocoa desserts in various ways, I introduce you to health-praised, gluten-free no-bake cocoa squares.

This simple recipe hides in delicious, healthy, and easy to prepare no-bake cocoa squares made of high-quality ingredients rich in vitamins, such as dates, nuts, cocoa, bananas and honey. These healthy squares contain no flour or gluten, so they are also a great treat for celiacs.

Cocoa squares consist of two important and consecutive layers. The first layer is firmer and forms the basis of this no-bake cake. The top layer is a little more creamy and smooth, with a pleasant touch of banana flavor that refreshes the dessert. Check out what a wonderful banana-cacao connection is in this delicious, no-bake dessert. For vegan version, just use maple syrup instead of honey.

No-bake cocoa squares are rich in fiber, many micronutrients and healthy fats. This dessert is really filling, so it also serves as a healthy form of breakfast or filling snack between the meals.
