If you love chocolates and are always wary of nutrient contents in store bought chocolate products, these brownie bites/balls are here for you. I personally love the taste of real chocolate that is not made with plenty of added sugars and is not cloying. These brownie bites are mildly sweetened with medjool dates (low GI) and pure maple syrup (low GI), have this earthy chocolate(y) flavor (thanks to tahini, almond butter and raw cacao powder), and a gooey/airy texture from dates and maple syrup that is so irresistible. They are a perfect low carb snack for satisfying that chocolate craving without the energy crash. You are only ten minutes away from enjoying this goodness!
P.S. These can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks and in the freezer for several months (if you can resist). Hope you enjoy and like them as much as I do. xx
