Brownie Cacao Bites {Gluten free, Vegan, Paleo}


IMG_6633Who doesn’t love chocolate.


  • 3/4 C almond flour (if you don’t have almond flour, add ~1 cup almonds to your food processor and blend first)
  • 1 C Medjool dates
  • 1 heaping Tbsp. coconut oil (no need to melt)
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp. nut butter (I use Almond butter)
  • 4 tbsp. Cacao powder
  • Dash of salt



  1. Add almonds, dates, and coconut oil to food processor. (Tip: Make sure your dates are soft or you will have a tough time! If they aren’t, soak them in some warm water for 5 – 10 minutes first).
  2. Once combined, add the nut butter and cacao powder, and salt, to taste.
  3. Blend again. You should reach a sticky but doughy consistency.
  4. Wet your hands and roll into balls. Place in an airtight container and let set in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
  5. Keep in fridge or freezer in sealed container. Pop ’em for a kick of energy or to satisfy that chocolate sweet tooth!
