Raw Brownie Bites that are are made with only 5 ingredients, are vegan and gluten-free and are a perfect quick healthy breakfast or snack!
I guest blogged these over on Culinary Couture and helping Meriem with posts while she is celebrating Ramadan. What did I bring to the table? Raw brownie bites. I’ve decided to share them over here with you!
I’m on a whole health kick right now and have been experimenting with vegan recipes and I’ve been loving dates. If you’ve never tried them, dates are naturally sweet, and remind me of like a chewier, sweeter raisin loaded with tons of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. That’s why they had to be the prime ingredient in these raw brownies bites, next to chocolate of course.
The texture is there, the chewiness, and most important of all, THE CHOCOLATE of these raw brownie bites matches right up to brownies. I am trying so hard not to devour these babies but it’s really hard! They are also made in a much shorter time than regular brownies which are also a plus :). As a synopsis these bites are:
I would recommend rolling them in saran wrap because boy are they sticky at first! Once they go into the fridge and set, they’re perfect. You could even roll them in chocolate chips, or coconut (yum). Best part? If it’s summer where you are, you won’t need to turn on the oven for this. Win Win!
Raw Brownie Bites
- 1/2 cup walnuts

- 1 cup dates (Medjool or regular), chopped
- 1/3 cup + 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

- Grind the walnuts and almonds in a food processor, until a dough starts to form. Add the dates, cocoa powder, and salt and process until incorporated and the mixture begins to turn into a dough.
- Roll the mixture into round balls using the help of saran wrap, until all the mixture is finished. Place in the fridge for at least an hour, then enjoy!
