Healthy No Bake Brownie Bites

IMG_2711These have been a staple in my diet since day one on my Paleo journey. I have made and brought these to almost every Paleo health talk I have given because they are a great example of how easy it is to make a delicious treat that is a great source of protein and healthy fats.

No Bake Brownie Bites work as a great party dessert. They are easy to transport, making them a great snack option and can even replace a meal on a busy day. I first saw this on Paleomg’s website (find the original recipe here) and modified them to fit my needs. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Ingredients:
15 pitted dates
1 cup crunchy almond butter (smooth works too)
1 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup dairy free chocolate chips (I use Sunspire or Enjoy Life)
3 tbsp protein powder (I use and love Nutiva Hemp Protein– GMO free and Organic)
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tbsp raw local honey

Using a large food processor, blend together your almond butter and dates until dates are fully broken down (it takes about a minute). Add in the remaining ingredients (minus the chocolate chips) and pulse together until mixed.IMG_2708

Once done, transfer into a bowl and stir in the chocolate chips. Form balls (slightly smaller than a ping pong ball) and set into a pyrex dish. It’s that easy!

This recipe makes 18-24 brownie bites. Store in your refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Bonus serving option:
