No Bake Chocolate Brownie Bites
Protein rich bites for sweet satisfying energy
Makes 12 | Prep 10 minutes
• 190 g/6.7oz pecans
• 140 g/4.9oz, 8 large soft pitted dates
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• ¼ tsp salt
• 3 Tbsp cacao powder
Add pecans to the food processor and pulse until fine. Scoop out 1 Tbsp of ground pecans and set aside on a plate for rolling later. Add the dates, vanilla, salt, cacao and blend well. The mixture should have a fine, crumb like texture and be sticky enough to roll into individual bites. Take out a spoonful at a time and use your hands to roll into 12 balls. Lightly coat with the pecan crumbs set aside earlier. Place in the freezer to set for 1 hour or more. Stored in the freezer in an airtight container.
Tip - Medjool dates are soft and blend well. To soften other dates, remove seeds, place in a bowl and cover with warm water for 30
minutes or more. Drain and add to recipes.
