Chocolate Brownie Bites

This was a super fun discovery! I’ve been seeing the “protein bite” trend going around on Facebook and Pinterest, and although I don’t really buy into the whole protein powder thing (I’d say the vast majority of protein powders have ingredients like sugar and/or some other unnatural sweetener along with a number of other trans-fat-related ingredients), I do enjoy a fast, simple, and tasty recipe that can be packed away as a snack on a long trip or simply enjoyed at home for dessert. Plus, miniature style things are totally a big deal right now and… well, I get it. You get all the punch of a fun treat like a brownie without feeling guilty about eating an entire brownie.

So, I decided to give it a shot the other day and see what would happen.

These chocolate brownie bites are very similar to these chocolate date balls that I made in Chennai, India. Except this time, these “raw brownies” are sugar-free! Made with nuts, chocolate, coconut, and stevia, I’ve created a nearly perfect energy bites recipe for a long trek. With a little bit of tweaking, I plan to update this recipe to make these energy balls a bit less crumbly so that they can be easily taken in a “snack bag” during trips. Of course, in its current state each individual ball can be wrapped in plastic wrap (or something similar) after being frozen and then packed into a Ziploc baggie. The next trip we go on, I’m totally gonna make a stash of these healthy “brownies!”

Chocolate Brownie Bites

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup Almonds
  • 1/2 Cup Walnuts
  • 1/4- 1/2 Cup Pecans
  • 2 1/2 TBSP Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tsp Stevia Powder (to taste)
  • 1/4 Tsp Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Non-Dairy Milk

Instructions

  1. Put all ingredients in a food processor and mix to incorporate thoroughly. The mixture should be sticky like cookie dough and the ingredients processed as finely as possible.
  2. Roll the mix into balls about 1-inch in size and place onto a plate. Top with flaxseeds, fruit, or granola.
  3. Place the plate with the finished bites in the freezer to set for about 30 minutes. Afterward, they may be eaten OR moved to the fridge for later.
