Raw Brownie Bites (healthy, delicious, and vegan!)

It's hard to believe that these are brownie bites and healthy.

It's true.
It's probably harder to believe that these actually taste good. Actually, they're delicious. I have a major sweet tooth, and these satisfy that crave. I'm also the kind of person who thinks that junk food shouldn't be healthy. This is my first exception!
Try it, you'll like it…I love them!

Healthy Delicious Brownie Bites
Yeilds: about 24 small bites
Recipe slightly adapted from
  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Squirt of agave nectar, honey, or maple syrup (optional)
  1. Add walnuts and salt to a blender or food processor. Mix until the walnuts are finely ground.
  2. Add the dates, vanilla, and cocoa powder to the blender. Add the a bit of agave nectar, honey, or maple syrup if you want a bit of extra sweetness) Mix well until everything is combined. With the blender still running, add a few drops of water at a time to make the mixture stick together.
  3. Using a spatula, transfer the mixture into a bowl. Using your hands, form small round balls, rolling in your palm. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Enjoy and bon appetit!
