INGREDIENTS FOR CHOCOLATE BROWNIE ENERGY BITES
Makes 12-14 balls or 6-8 Thumbprint Cookies
6-7 dates, pitted
¼ cup almonds (or any nut)
¼ cup peanut butter
¼ cup tahini
¼ cup coconut flour
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
1-2 tablespoon maple syrup (or honey)
3-5 tablespoon water (depending on desired consistency)
Pinch of sea salt (or top with maldon/finishing salt)
Optional Add ins: 1 tablespoon chia seeds, Flax seeds, 1 scoop collagen protein powder, any nut butter to replace Tahini or PB, coconut flakes, protein powder
*These are so versatile and fool-proof. Add any flavoring you like. I didn’t want these to have a strong PB flavor so I did 50% PB, 50% Tahini. You can sub any nut butter for a different flavor profile!
HOW TO MAKE NO BAKE CHOCOLATE BROWNIE BITES IN 3 DIFFERENT WAYS
Blend dates in a food processor with nuts then add the remaining ingredients until combined. The only variable will be the amount of water. Add a little at a time until you reach the desired consistency. It should be slightly sticky but roll together in the food processor like a paste.
Option 1: For the Dessert Lovers!
If you are craving a healthier cookie- roll into a tablespoon size ball, place on a cookie sheet, and using your thumb or back of a spoon- press down in the center to create a crevice in the middle of the dough. Fill with your favorite sweet filing (Jam, Caramel sauce, Ganache) and top with Sea Salt.
Option: 2: For the Dessert Enthusiast!
Roll into balls of desired size and drizzle with melted chocolate, coconut flakes, salted caramel sauce. This is much less added sugar than the thumbprint cookies but (in my opinion) the perfect amount for this to still be a healthy, protein packed snack with a slight indulgence.
Option 3: For the Health Nut Roll into balls of desired size and that’s it!
These freeze really well and make for the perfect quick snack or dessert through- out the week. If you make this recipe- will you show us by tagging @Eatmorecakebycandice or using #EatMoreCakeFindMoreJoy on Instagram? We would love to see what you are baking in the kitchen!
