Paleo Chocolate Brownie Bites

Please share:

I heard about Larabars for the longest time. “Oh my gosh, they’re so good, you have to try them”, “They’re so healthy”, blah blah blah. So I tried one about a year ago. I had no clue what they hype was about. They were dry and not very good. I realized they were basically a processed version of something I made a couple years prior and decided I would never buy another boring Larabar ever again.

I have since made lots of different varieties of date/almond bars, and coconut has always hailed as my favorite. Until now. Holy freaking cow. These are so delicious. It’s like eating a gob of deliciously gooey brownie batter! Seriously!

Chocolate Brownie Bites

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 cup raw Almonds
  • 1-1/2 cups pitted Medjool Dates, approximately 10-11 dates
  • 3-1/2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder, try to use the good stuff
  • 4 Tbsp Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract, I never measure, so pour in what makes you happy
  • Water


  1. Combine all ingredients (except water), in the order listed, in the bowl of a food processor.
  2. Process until mixture resembles coarse gravel.
  3. While the processor is running, add a thin stream of water, about 1/2 tsp, maybe less depending on the moistness of your dates.
  4. Stop the processor and check the mixture inside. If it sticks together when you smush it, then you've got the right consistency. If it's still crumbly, add more water. You don't want to add too much water because the bites will be too sticky.
  5. When you've got the right consistency, roll mixture into tablespoon-size balls. Yield varies depending on how much you eat while you're rolling them 🙂
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a week or so, if they last that long.

Is there something else instead of dates that could be used, that would still make them healthy?

Dates are basically the glue that holds these together. You could try figs, but the taste would be vastly different. Are you unable to eat dates, or are you looking for a lower carb option?

Wow these are an instant fave! The kids are so excited to help make them and think it is something really special in their lunches. It curbs the sweet tooth beautifully. Thanks for posting. I have a feeling we will be making them often. As a side note we used silicone molds as well as made our own "kisses". It was nice that the dough could maintain many shapes.

I just made these and they are fabulous! I included bout a half cup of cacao nibs for extra crunch which was yummy. Then I saw the apple bites recipe and and everything on hand to make those too. SCORE FOR ME! Thanks for the great recipes.
