What are your goals for this year? Besides focusing on self love, two of my biggest goals include snacking smarter and achieving the body fat % I want. And it’s safe to say that I’m on the path to both— aside from one of the worst workouts that I’ve ever had. But that’s a whole other (ugly) story.

I eat relatively healthy at all my meals, but there’s something about that sweet tooth that kicks in around 9pm.

I typically try to keep a batch of these on hand in the refrigerator most days. But if you know me– I needed variety. To switch things up a bit, I made a batch using the beloved peanut butter♥ The best part: incredibly simple and made with wholesome, healthy ingredients. Naturally gluten free, no refined sugar, and full of chocolate flavor. And that my friends makes me really happy.

Everything is mixed together in a food processor (or blender.)

  • whole almonds
  • dates
  • cocoa powder
  • peanut butter
  • honey

Pulse it all together until the mixture starts coming together, roll them into balls, and BAM! you’ve got yourself a little treat! And there’s room for customization too! Not a fan of peanut butter? Swap it out with almond butter. Or try cashews and cashew butter!

Healthy Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

feature

  • Prep Time: 15m
  • Total Time: 45m

Ingredients

  • 1 cup pitted dates, (about 12 dates)
  • 2/3 cup whole almonds
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Optional: coat with crushed peanuts or cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. Soak the dates in warm water ~10 minutes to plump up. Meanwhile, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat (for easy clean up.) Set aside.
  2. Place the dates, almonds, cocoa powder, peanut butter and honey into the food processor. Blend/pulse together until a moist, crumbly dough forms— it should come together with your hands. This will take a few minutes of blending/pulsing. If the dough is too dry, add in a few more dates.
  3. Once the dough is formed, scoop 1 Tablespoon of dough and roll into a smooth ball. Place onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. If coating: roll the balls into the crushed peanuts or cocoa powder. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow them to set.
  4. Cover tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. You can freeze these as well! Freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

Additional Notes

  1. There's room for customization too! Not a fan of peanut butter? Swap it out with almond butter. Or try cashews and cashew butter!
  2. Dates can be found in the produce section of any grocery store. Be sure to soak into warm water as it will add more moisture to these. If this step is skipped, more dates will be needed.
