Ingredients for Raw Vegan Brownie Bites
- Raw Cashews make a fudgy neutral base Use macadamia nuts or more walnuts as a substitute
- Walnuts add the nutty brownie flavor and volume.
- Lightly toasted coconut adds a caramel undertone to these fudgy balls.
- Soft dates are the sweetener. a pinch of salt balances the sweetness. Don’t like dates, then use a mix of 2 tbsp maple syrup and 2 tbsp or so coconut sugar/brown sugar, you might need to add some flour(oat, regular or almond) if the mixture is too sticky.
- Good quality cocoa makes these brownies incredibly delectable. I use dutch processed for a more chocolatey flavor.
- Coat these balls with hemp seeds, cocoa powder, coconut or chia seeds
- Variations: Add 1/4 tsp instant coffee. Add a few drops of vanilla extra or vanilla bean paste for additional flavor. Add a tbsp of hemp seeds with the nuts for additional protein.
How to make Raw Vegan Brownie Bites
First, you want to powder the nuts so that they are a fine meal and done add too much texture to the bites. Add the nuts and coconut to a processor and process until the nuts become an even fine meal.
Add the cocoa powder and process again to combine well. Add the dates and salt and process again until the dates have broken down and mix well. It will take a minute. The dates will break down then the mixture will become doughy.
If the dates are dryer, process them so they break into small pieces then remove from the processor, then add the nuts.
Use a scoop to take portions of the dough and roll into a ball. Press the ball in toppings of choice. Store refrigerated for weeks or freeze for even longer.

Can I substitute the dates?
Yes, use a mix of 2 tbsp maple syrup and 2 tbsp or so coconut sugar/brown sugar, you might need to add some flour(oat, regular or almond) if the mixture is too sticky to roll.
