Chocolate Brownie Raw Bites

Chocolate Brownie Raw Bites

This delicious balls of yum will get your smacking your lips and reaching for more! 

Ingredients

1 cup pitted dates

2 cups walnuts

6 tablespoons cocoa or cacao

3 tablespoons chia seeds

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons almond butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon melted coconut oil

Desiccated coconut for rolling (optional)

Method

1: Combine all ingredients in a high speed food processor.  If food processor is not very powerful, give the nuts a head start by blending them for a bit on their own before adding other ingredients.

2: If the mixture isn’t coming together, gradually add a small amount of water.  The walnuts will begin to release oils as you mix though so be patient.

3: Once you have a sticky batter consistency, stop mixing.

4: Sprinkle some desiccated coconut onto a small plate.

5: Scoop out dollops with a spoon and roll into balls with your hands. They may be oily at first. If they’re really sticky, wet your hands slightly.

6: Roll the balls into the coconut to coat the outside and place onto a tray or plate coated with grease-proof paper.

Store in the fridge or freezer.
