Simple Vegan No-Bake Brownie Bites
I also love these because they’re convenient for girls on the go and busy mommas like myself. They’re also great for the kids’ school lunches.
I usually have a chocolate craving mid-afternoon while at work. My usual go-to would be a kit kat or twix; now I just grab a couple of these and the craving is gone.
Also, unlike your typical brownie recipe which includes eggs, this one can be made 100% vegan by using vegan chocolate chips. You can also play around with different toppings like chopped nuts or add shredded coconut as alternatives.
Ingredients for No-Bake Brownie Bites
To begin, you will need the following ingredients.
1/3 cup cacao powder – you can use cocoa powder but I chose to use cacao powder for added nutritional value.
10 majool dates – dates are high in fiber which keep you full longer. They are great for this recipe and add sweetness. Important- Make sure you remove any pits from the dates.
1 cup of walnuts – rich in antioxidants and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), a plant-based omega 3 fatty acid.
1 tsp vanilla extract – don’t forget to add this ingredient. It adds a delicious flavor to your brownie bites.
1/4 tsp salt – a pinch of salt adds amazing balance to this chocolaty treat.
1/3 cup chocolate chips – make this recipe vegan by incorporating vegan chocolate chips or add white chocolate for alternative taste.
This recipe yields about 6-10 brownie bites. I like mine a bit larger so I’m able to make 6.
How to Make Vegan No-Bake Brownie Bites
Step 1: Blend walnuts and cacao powder in a food processor or blender.
Step 2: Add dates, vanilla, and salt to food processor and mix. If the mix is crumbling, you may add about 1/2 tsp of water and mix to get a sticky batter consistency.
Step 3: Once the mix is a creamy texture, transfer to mixing bowl.
Step 4: Add chocolate chips. And fold into mixture.
Step 5: Lastly, roll about 1 TSP of the mixture into bite-size balls and place on parchment paper. I like to stick them in the fridge for about an hour and enjoy.
