Found this recipe at deliciouslivingmag.com. I haven't tried it, but I've seen recipes like it and wanted to put it here for safe keeping. The brownie bites are super healthy and I think they should be super delicious too. These are essentially raw brownie bites. Here's what it says on the website about them "Decadent and rich, these are made with good-fat almonds and antioxidant-laden cacao and sweetened with fiber-rich Medjool dates. They provide whole-food nutrition, so enjoy as a snack or treat. These can be kept at room temperature for a couple of days or will keep for at least a week refrigerated. Ingredient tips: Bob’s Red Mill makes almond meal (flour), but if you can’t find it, just use whole raw almonds and process them into a powder using your food processor. Prep tip: Keep batter from sticking to your hands by lightly coating them with coconut oil, olive oil, or even water."

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup raw almond meal
  • 12 cup cacao, powder
  • 18 teaspoon sea salt
  • 12 cup pitted medjool dates, packed

  • 14 cup raw walnuts, crushed

These ARE super rich! I was going to post them bcz they're similar to choc. PB balls without the PB. I used carob instead of cocoa and rolled them into balls. It made about 20 balls and it was really good! Thanks for posting. Update: I tried these with 1/2 C honey instead of the dates/honey and they turned out just as good, and easier to make.
