Brownie Bites
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8x8 (Thin)
  • 1 cup raw Almonds (I soak mine and dry them in dehydrator so they are very crisp)
  • 1-1/2 cups pitted Medjool Dates (approximately 10-11 dates)
  • 3-1/2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder (try to use the good stuff)
  • 4 Tbsp Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract (I never measure, so pour in what makes you happy)
  • Water, maybe
  • (optional: protein powder)
  • (optional: mini choco chips)
  1. Add all ingredients except water and choco chips to the blender (I use a Blendtec) or food processor in the order listed (the keeps the dates from getting stuck in the blades).
  2. Pulse a few times until your almonds have been chopped up pretty small (there can still be a few good sized pieces). You may need to scrape the sides 1 or 2 times.
  3. If your mixture is dry, add in a small drizzle of water (I’m guessing no more than ¼ – ½ tsp).
  4. Once everything is combined, scoop the mixture into a bowl and mix/knead just to make sure it’s nice and combined.
  5. Enlist the help of small humans (aka: children) to roll the mixture into Tbsp-size balls.
  6. Eat them all, or maybe share one or two with your small human helpers. It’s your call.
