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:

You can use any good quality cocoa, dutch, dark, etc.

The ingredients are partially processed here. You want the nuts finely ground, so pulse some more if it looks like this.

Grind the above ingredients in a food processor. Continue processing until a dough-like texture is formed. Scoop out the mixture and roll into bite sized balls. Store in frig until ready to eat!  Yum.
