Chewy Brownie Balls

That’s it!!  I find them very rich so I prefer a wee bite or two at a time so I created small Brownie Balls from the dough, makes about 30 balls.  You can also pack firmly into square pan, which would create about 16 brownies if you like a punch of cocoa in one serving.

I like to store in the freezer as this makes them more chewy, but you can also store in the fridge.  They will keep in the freezer for a few weeks …if they last that long :-O, or keep in the fridge for about a week. Store in sealed container.

Enjoy!!

Added a couple of days after the original post: Oh Oh… and then today I took a few (yes three) of the wee chewy brownie balls out of the freezer and added a wee dollop of raw almond butter on top…. oh my!!  Oh my, oh my!!  Yes, you got it!!  A keeper 🙂

Oh and if you love these – you’ll love my other chewy dessert variations:

    HI Judit – thanks so much for your kind words about my site 😉 I love that!! Food processor – I use a Cuisinart – I’ve had mine for 20+ years and next to my juicer and blender it’s the next most used appliance in my kitchen… I can’t live without it! It’s perfect for these chewy balls… (also my cashew chewy balls!). If you are interested you can see the Cuisinart I like in my e-Store – here’s the link: http://almostrawvegan.com/estore/ Let me know if that helps! Cat xox

  3. That looks like a healthy looking brownie ball! Are there alternatives to dates?

    1. Hi Rika – hmmmm alternative to dates? That’s a touch one as it’s the date-nut combination that makes these chewy and owey goey 😉 You could use dried apricots…. are you looking for a substitute because you don’t like dates or is it less sweet you are looking for?

    1. Thanks Sophie… they are one of the favorites xox

    If I don’t have medjool dates, what can be used as a substitution (and how much?)

    1. Hi there – if you don’t have medjool dates you can use any type of date, although medjool dates just tend to be bigger and juicier but any date will work and I would use the same quantity. You could also use dried apricots, that might work although the overall flavour will be different…. does that help?
