Double Chocolate Brownie Dough Balls

Hello September!!

I love Fall and all of it's beauty! Such amazing colors, & warm feelings! I can't get enough of fresh apples & school supplies. :)

September is the perfect time for planning and making fun school snacks and treats. These little bites are adorable, delicious, & perfect for school or work lunches.

This recipe for Double Chocolate Brownie Dough Balls is  

  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 12 Medjool dates (1 cup packed & pitted)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

  • 1. In a food processor, add the cashews and process until a fine crumb. Be sure not to over process and release the oils too much.
  • 2. Now add in the pitted dates and process until chunky. Add in the rest of the ingredients (except walnuts) and process until a dough forms. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Pulse in walnuts so they remain chunky. Add a bit more liquid sweetener if dough is too dry.
  • 3. Form into balls and store in fridge or freezer.

  • These little bites have the perfect amount of sweetness and pop.
    I stored mine in the freezer and they always kept their chew!
