Raw Chocolate Walnut Brownie Bites

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Total time: 20 minutes

Yield: 20 golf-ball sized treats

Ingredients

  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 1.25 cups Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1 Hass avocado
  • 2 tablespoons unfiltered honey
  • 1/4 cup unrefined coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup toppings of choice

Cooking Directions

  1. In a food processor or blender, combine the walnuts and dates and pulse until they are finely chopped and thoroughly combined.
  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients except the toppings and pulse until everything is blended together into a smooth dough. It will be moist and sticky but very thick and will hold together well.
  3. On a flat surface, spread out your desired toppings. Prepare a plate with parchment paper or cupcake liners for the finished balls.
  4. Using a tablespoon, spoon out about a golf-ball sized amount of dough into your hand and roll it into a ball shape.
  5. Roll the ball in the toppings, and set it on the prepared plate or in a cupcake liner. Repeat until all the dough is used up. The batch should make about 20 bites.
  6. Place the finished brownie bites in the fridge until they’re ready to be enjoyed. This gives the coconut oil a chance to firm up and make the bites the consistency of a fudgey truffle. These will last three to five days in the fridge and three to four weeks in the freezer … if you don’t eat them all before then!
