It’s a Tuesday night express post! Fortunately, there’s only so much words can do to enhance the appeal of raw brownie bites, which are mighty enticing as it is.
The idea for these raw, vegan brownie bites came from the raw chocolate cupcakes I posted recently. Indeed, it’s essentially the same recipe (walnuts, cacao nibs, cocoa powder, dates), rolled up into little snack sized globes. Simple stuff, but one of the things I like about raw desserts is that one single technique (nuts, dried fruit, seasonings) can serve as a base for pie crust, crumble topping, snack bar, snack ball–whatever you want, really. When chocolate is involved, so much the better.
I like keeping these little guys in larger mason jars, or smaller ones to transport around as a snack. Mason jars would also make a cute presentation for holiday gift-giving!
This is one of the most satisfying-yet-simple dessert/snacks I can think of. Appropriately, I just featured these guys as part of a feature in Washingtonian Magazine’s Well + Being blog today. It’s for the magazine’s “food diary” series. While I typically don’t show daily eats–it’s just never been my blogging beat–I thought this would be a fun opportunity to share some of my routine with the magazine’s readership. Check it out if you’re interested!
Enjoy the recipe, friends! Tomorrow, a new Green Recovery story. At last 🙂
