SO easy. SO healthy. SO good. I could eat this entire batch. In fact, I’m pretty sure I inhaled at least 4 or 5 of these the day I made them.

These are made with walnuts, dates, cacao, vanilla and salt + whatever you like to roll them in! I used chia seeds and coconut. The extra coating is optional, but really makes a delicious texture with a bit of crunch. PLUS chia seeds add a major boost of nutrition!

Just blend, scoop, roll in some goodies, if you like, and BAM. Super healthy deliciousness ready to be devoured. (ps. rolling with your hands is totally unnecessary when you have a cookie scoop! Saves so much time. I LOVE my cookie scoop! I use one almost every day.)60-Second Brownie Bites | PrettyPies.com

These have a rich, deep, dark flavor. If you’re a dark chocolate lover, these are for you! If you want a less intense flavor, add a little less cacao OR use cocoa instead (which has a milder flavor). 60-Second Brownie Bites | PrettyPies.com

Did you know raw cacao powder is full of health benefits? Yep! Full of magnesium, antioxidants (20x more than blueberries!!), and tons of B vitamins! YAY! Chocolate with benefits. 😉 I call that a WIN.

  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts
  • 4-5 Tbs raw cacao powder
  • Pinch of pink salt
  • Splash of vanilla
  • Splash of water if needed to help blend
  • 3 Tbs chia seeds coconut, or cacao for rolling (optional)
Instructions
  1. Add dates in food processor to break them up, then add walnuts and pulse again. (It doesn't take long!)
  2. Add cacao, vanilla, and salt and pulse until a loose dough forms. Add a splash of water if it seems too dry.
  3. Use a cookie scoop to make balls.
  4. Roll in chia seeds, desiccated coconut, or cacao if you like.
  5. ENJOY!
Recipe Notes

Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Should last at least a week.

You only need to pulse the ingredients for a few seconds-til they just come together. If you over-process, it will become like chocolate walnut butter! Good, but a much softer, gooey-er texture. If that happens, you can add in some more walnuts, if you want to try to firm it back up.

Other nuts would probably work in place of walnuts, but you may have to blend them before you add the dates. You could try cashews or macadamia nuts.
