No Cook Brownie Bites

I am always trying to find 'cleaned up' versions of my sweet favorites. I recently came across these on the Happy Healthy Mama site and decided to give them a try. Amazingly, they are made without any flour, oil, butter or refined sugar.

Although I had to pull out my food processor, they are only 4 ingredients and required no baking! Another plus....they were delicious. A fast, clean version of brownies for me is a great alternatives on days when I'm pressed for time or just want something simple to curb my chocolate cravings.

See below for the recipe with my modifications.

Makes 14 bites - Feel free to make them thicker or thinner based on your preference!

1/2 cup raw walnuts

3/4 cup dates - pitted

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tablespoons chunky peanut butter

  1. Pulse the walnuts in a food processor until they form a powder. Set aside.
  2. Put the dates in the processor and blend until they form a paste.
  3. Add the powdered walnuts back to the processor with the dates and add in the cocoa powder and peanut butter.
  4. Process until the mixture all comes together. You'll know it's done when you can press it between your fingers and it stays together.
  5. Remove the blade from the processor and form a ball with the dough.
  6. Press out dough flat onto a piece of parchment or wax paper.
  7. Form a rectangle approximately  inches by 2-3 inches.
  8. Cut into squares using a knife or pizza cutter.
  9. Store at room temperature, but they may not last long!
