Raw Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites

I’m always looking for snacks that are low sugar and have some protein, but taste good!  I made these today, and they are good!  So, throw this all in your food processor with the metal blade, and violà!  You have a snack that will give you some holding power.

Why does it have holding power?  It has three crucial ingredients:  fiber from dates, fat and protein from nuts.  Some things are this simple!

Raw Dark Chocolate “Brownie Bites”

Ingredients for ~ 12 balls:
