When you combine the benefits of chocolate, almond butter for protein, and dates for sweetness, these chocolate brownie bites are a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth!
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup finely chopped pitted dates
1/4 cup unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder, divided
1/2 cup almond butter
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
pinch ground nutmeg
pinch ground cinnamon
Place your oats in the bowl of a food processor and process them until they are finely ground.
Add the dates, 2 tablespoons cacao (or cocoa) powder, almond butter, vanilla, nutmeg, and cinnamon, and process until the mixture until it is finely ground and sticking together; with a tootsie roll/dough-like consistency.
This step may take a few minutes. (If it isn’t quite coming together for you, add a few splashes of milk of your choice to get the consistency.)
