These delicious fudgy, chocolately balls will hit the spot for those pesky sweet tooth cravings! They are super easy to make and are a great snack for the whole family.
My boyfriend and I are guilty of searching the cupboards after dinner for just about anything sweet. So in order to keep us from doing this every night, I usually make some sort of sweet healthy treat for us to snack on when the cravings hit and I think these might be my new favourite!!
If you’ve ever made a batch of homemade brownies you KNOW the batter is the best par. These bites really do give you brownie batter vibes, just without the possible Salmonella poisoning from eating raw eggs!
Let’s break down the list of ingredients here so you know exactly what ones to go for!
I always go for Medjool dates or Deglet Noor Dates for my recipes. I find them to give you the caramel flavour and texture. Dates not only taste delicious they are actually nutritious as well! They are loaded with soluble fibre, contain minerals like magnesium and potassium and are an awesome way to get a quick burst of energy without the crash!
When choosing a nut butter you ALWAYS want to make sure the only ingredient in it is whichever nut you choose. Look for ones that say natural or organic, then flip it over and check out that ingredient list. Nut butters are a tasty way to get in lots of healthy fats to help satiate you between meals, as well as balance your blood sugar levels.
This wouldn’t be a brownie batter without walnuts right? Walnuts are an amazing source of omega-3 fatty acids making them great for brain health and inflammation. They also contain antioxidants for cellular protection!
People often confuse cacao powder with cocoa powder. Cacao powder is actually the unprocessed version of cocoa powder. It still contains all the wonderful vitamins and minerals that you would’t get from a processed regular cocoa powder. My favourite brand of cacao powder is Navitas organic cacao powder. https://navitasorganics.com/collections/cacao/products/cacao-powder
When it comes to salt you want to stay away from iodized table salts and look for natural unprocessed, unrefined salts such as Celtic sea salt or Himalayan pink salt. These types of salt still contain all the essential vitamins and minerals that help the body to properly process the sodium, making it more beneficial/less harmful for our bodies!
This is a supplemental item I have added to my regimen, it is made to be used supplementally with a healthy balanced diet. In no way is collagen powder a mandatory thing for everyone! It can be useful to support healthy skin, hair, nails and joints. It can be used in your morning smoothies, coffee, baked goods or even in plain water.
