I can’t get enough of these vegan coconut mochi bites. I love mochi desserts because of their chewy texture, crunchy exterior, and how easy they are to make.

These little mochi bites are perfect to bring to parties or picnics. They travel well and you can make these the day before. Just wait for them to completely cool and then store them in an airtight container.  Also kids absolutely love them. I brought these for my friend’s son’s birthday party and they were completely gone in no time. vegan coconut mochi cut in half on a cooling rack

Tips for Vegan Coconut Mochi:

  • Use Mochiko or another sweet rice flour. Stay away from regular rice flour as it’s completely different and you won’t get the right result.
  • I used light coconut milk for these but you can use fattier coconut milk for if you want something more rich.
  • Allow these to completely cool before eating. The texture will set up and get firmer as it cools, which is what gives these coconut mochi bites their chewy texture.

These vegan coconut mochi bites are egg and dairy free and are a lighter version of my Chewy Butter Mochi recipe. They both taste delicious! These have a more delicate exterior with a thinner, crispier crust whereas the Chewy Butter Mochi recipe has a thicker, crunchier crust. Try both if you’re a fan of mochi and decide which one you like better!

As you can see in the photo below, the interior is so stretchy and chewy. It’s a really interesting, unique texture if you’ve never had this before. The best way I can describe this is kind of similar to stretchy melted cheese but more chewy but I think it’s best to just try these for yourself!

This mochi muffin is so easy and super delicious, and it’s great that they are vegan too so I can make some for my vegan friends. We love the contrast between the crust and the chewy center.

If I wanted to make these chocolate flavor, how would I incorporate it? Cocoa powder or melted chocolate? Thanks!

Hi Samantha! That’s a great idea to make these chocolate flavored! For that, you can add cocoa powder to the mix as it’ll incorporate nicely in the batter. Hope you enjoy them! 😊

Hey I made this and it was good. I added 1-2 tablespoons of matcha powder to the batter as a twist, and nothing disastrous happened, but I found it hard to taste the matcha. If I do it again I might add more. Thanks for posting!

I’ve seen mochi bites in shops before, but I’ve never tried one. These look delicious and so addictive I think I’m going to have to give them a go. I love that you used light coconut milk too!
