Raw Vegan Brownie Bites
4 tablespoons raw cacao or cocoa powder, plus extra for rolling (if desired)
Generous pinch pink 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.
