No Bake Brownie Bites Recipe: This healthy no bake snack is super fudgy yet totally healthy! It has no added sugars, is kid-friendly and made with only 4 SIMPLE INGREDIENTS!
One thing being stuck at home taught me was to be creative with what I had in the kitchen. Since I had gotten in the habit of stopping by he store every few days I surprised myself with sticking to my one time a week grocery order. I found myself looking through what I had and trying to make sure I used that first... honestly something I should be doing all along. I ended up with some extra Medrool dates from my No Bake Carrot Bites and started thinking of something else to make with them.
After finding a couple of containers of cocoa, I settled on No Bake Brownie Bites Recipe. Turns out you can make a DECADENT tasting treat in a healthy package with just FOUR INGREDIENTS including those dates and cocoa.
Curious??? I thought so!

What's in these No Bake Brownie Energy Balls?
We've established they taste GREAT... so what's in them?
- Medjool Dates: The perfect naturally sweet date that makes these bites rich and moist without sugar.
- Walnut: A powerhouse superfood rich in healthy fats and protein.
- Cocoa Powder: Gives the bite a rich fudge flavor.
- Vanilla: Balances out the chocolate and adds some complexity of flavor.
You also need a couple of tablespoons of water and salt... but I'm not counting that in my 4 ingredients. 🙂
I suggest getting the special Medjool dates for this recipe because they are softer, taste better, and are easier to work with. You could substitute different types of nuts in this recipe but I love walnuts because of how soft they are and how many vitamins they have.
I know it might sound like an interesting combination but somehow it comes together to make FUDGE BROWNIE MAGIC!
