Healthy Brownie Bites

I spend a lot of time looking for/ testing new recipes that will work for us and that I can share with all of you. Many don’t work out and a LOT have to be tweaked a bit before I use/ share them. This one worked out well on the 1st try!! I didn’t even change any of the ingredients. Healthy Brownie Bites via Snack Girl.

Brownie Bites

(20 balls)
15 pitted dates
2/3 cup cocoa powder (plus extra for dusting)
1 cup raw almonds
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons water

Add almonds to food processor and pulse until ground. Add dates, cocoa powder, honey, and water. Mix until it just forms a sticky mass. Wash hands and attempt to make a ball with the dough (it may need more water to get to the perfect consistency). Put a tablespoon of cocoa or confectioner’s sugar on a plate. Roll balls in your hand and then roll in sugar or cocoa (or both). Eat! These can be store in the fridge for a week.

A few notes:
I used Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder in the recipe, but either would work well.
I also rolled some of mine in coconut or chopped walnuts and they were delicious!
I used more like 4T of water and ended up with a smoother consistency.
DON’T be afraid of the fact that there are dates in it! Seriously. Just trust me.

Enjoy!
