Raw Vegan Brownie Bites Recipe

Here’s a recipe I thought I would never, ever share on my blog. Even though I love taking popular recipes and making them healthy (seriously – I prefer these healthy double chocolate brownies to ordinary brownies!) I’ve never really got on with healthy snacks made from nuts and dates. That is until I made these raw vegan brownie bites. They are the closest healthy snack you’ll ever get to a dense, rich, fudge-like chocolate brownie, I swear!

Raw Vegan Brownie Bites Recipe | This easy vegan brownie recipe tastes so good you'll never guess it's a healthy brownie recipe! Totally paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free, these healthy brownies are raw and taste EXACTLY like a real chocolate fudge brownie!

Inspired by this recipe from Jessica in the Kitchen, I scooped up some nuts, chopped dates and cocoa powder into my NutriBullet. I was totally prepared to be disappointed by yet another healthy snack recipe that swore it was going to be amazing.

It’s not like I don’t love healthy, nutritious treats. I really do! I’ve just been let down by so many recipes that I wasn’t expecting much. Maybe that’s why I was so shocked when these delicious bite-sized pieces of heaven turned out to be one of the most delicious snacks I’ve ever had the pleasure of nibbling on!

They’re seriously chocolatey (without the use of any actual chocolate – how great is that?!), oh-so fudge-like, incredibly rich and genuinely satisfying. Everything I want from a healthy treat! And because they’re so luscious, you can get away with only eating one or two of them and feeling 100% happy, treated and satisfied without overdoing it. I don’t know about you, but after eating one ordinary brownie, I just want another and another and another…

One thing I do need to warn you about with these raw vegan brownie bites is the noise they make when you’re making them! Throw hard nuts into a NutriBullet and you’ve got to expect some noise, but seriously? I had no idea just how much noise they would make!

I was surprised the neighbours weren’t banging on the door telling me to cut it out. So best make these in the middle of the day, when the neighbours are out and none of your family members are asleep, okay? Or you could always make them in retaliation to noisy neighbours playing bad music or doing DIY.

  1. Place all the ingredients into a high-powered food processor or blender (like a NutriBullet) and process everything has been totally broken down and you've got a thick dough. You'll probably have to scrape the insides of your processor/blender down a couple of times with a rubber spatula to make sure everything is combined.

  2. When you've got a thick dough, scoop out 1 tablespoon-sized pieces and roll each one into a ball. If the mixture is too dry and crumbly to form balls, wet your hands with water and try rolling the balls again.
