Looking for an easy afternoon snack idea?! These brownie bliss balls are a PERFECT afternoon treat. They are fudgy, sweet (but not too sweet!), and PACKED with protein, healthy fats, and fiber.
Another bonus - this recipe only takes 5 minutes to make! We recommend making a big batch (double or triple!), and keeping some in the freezer for later :)
TIP: you can actually make these nut-free by using sunflower or pumpkin seeds as your "nut of choice", and sunflower or pumpkin seed butter instead of almond butter. This way your kids can safely take them to school!
1 cup pitted Medjool dates
1/4 cup nut of choice (ex. cashews, almonds, etc.)
3 tbsp almond butter
2-3 tbsp cocoa powder
Dash of salt
In a food processor, blend all the ingredients together until a crumbly paste forms.
To form a ball, use 2 tbsp of 'dough' and roll it between your hands.
TIP: sprinkle balls with extra cocoa powder if too sticky
