I made gluten/dairy free Coconut Brownie Bites as a dessert recently because I was having an uncontrollable chocolate craving. *well, that’s not true, I can control it.  I just don’t want to*   As you can tell they were a hit with more than just me.

Healthy and delicious, she can certainly have these.  But just one…Andrew took her to the grocery store after and he told me she was totally wired.  Bouncing up and down in her stroller, singing, and talking non-stop.  I’m just glad she was with him and not with me,”I just gave her chocolate.  Here you go, she’s your problem now.”

If you want to make these easy no-bake treats you can go here.  Or if you’re lazy, like me, here’s the recipe quoted directly from her site:

Coconut Brownie Bites –

  • 10 pitted Medjool Dates
  • 3/4 Cup Walnuts
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbs Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut

What Do I Do?

  1. Use a food processor to pulse the walnuts into crumbs
  2. Add all other ingredients and blend until mixture forms a ball
  3. Form mixture into small balls and roll in coconut.
