Raw Vegan Brownie Bites

Author - Gena Hamshaw
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes
Yields: 24 servings


  • 1 cups raw cashews or walnuts
  • 4 tablespoons raw cacao or cocoa powder, plus extra for rolling (if desired)
  • Generous pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups pitted, tightly packed Medjool dates


  • Place the cashews, cacao powder, and sea salt in a food processor fitted with the S blade. Process for about 30 seconds, or till everything is pretty well ground up.
  • Add the dates and process for another 1-2 minutes, or until the mixture is evenly combined and sticking together. It should stick together easily when you squeeze a little in your hand.
  • Shape the "dough" into balls that are about 3/4 - 1 inch thick by rolling it in your palms. If you'd like, transfer extra cacao or cocoa powder to a plate and roll the balls in it to coat.
  • Store the energy bites in the fridge for 30 minutes, or until ready to eat. Enjoy!


Makes 24-30 balls. Recipe can easily be halved. Will keep, stored in the fridge, for two weeks.
