Salted Almond Brownie Bites

This recipe is a modified version of the one in my Healthy Little Bites eBook. Like with any bliss ball recipe, the ingredient options are endless! So, I swapped out a few ingredients for others, as my pantry is limited due to the Covid-19 #socialdistancing and isolation that we are all experiencing. Doesn’t mean you can’t keep making some great, healthy snacks.

These babies are full of healthy omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants and happiness in every bite to get you through this health crisis.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 C nuts (I used a combo of almonds and cashews)

2 C pitted dates

3/4 C almond butter (or any nut butter)

1/4 C chia seeds

4 Tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla extract

4 Tbsp raw cacao powder

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp coconut oil

Method:

Place nuts in the food processor and chop loosely. Add in dates and chop again. Add in remainder of ingredients and hit the “dough” setting. Mix for a minute or so until all the ingredients are combined and form a ball. You can check the consistency with your hands by pinching a bit of the mixture together. If it stays in a ball, it’s ready.

Chill the mixture for 15-20 minutes before rolling into 20-24 bite-sized balls. Keep cool until ready to eat. These also freeze well.

Enjoy!
