This is what happens when you wake up to chocolate cravings but aren’t ready to commit to a full blown chocolate bar, dessert or refined sugar for breakfast. Coconut brownie bites…not too shabby if you ask me!
These raw, vegan, gluten free and guilt-free treats are made with 3-4 simple ingredients that come together in minutes. Super simple and so delicious. I dare you to eat just one!
The recipe here approximate so feel free to have a little fun. I have made these with only 12 dates, used 2 tbsp of cacao powder and only a few tablespoons of coconut for rolling. The end result was super fudgy and crazy decadent!
Feel free to experiment, give them a bit of a nutritional boost with hemp seeds, ground flax seeds, add your favorite nuts or nut butter or whatever calls to you!
Raw Coconut Brownie Bites
- 20 pitted medjool dates , about 2 cups
- 2-3 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/4 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut , plus more for rolling
- 1/4 cup almond flour
In food processor, pulse together all ingredients for a minute so until a crumbly dough forms
Fill a shallow bowl with some extra desiccated coconut. Pinch off some of the dough and roll into 1-inch balls, then roll in coconut to coat
If you have a nut allergy or prefer no nuts, simply sub out almond flour for more desiccated coconut or coconut flour
