Chocolate Brownie Bites

Chocolate Brownie Bites

These delectable brownie bites are easy to make and full of (and covered!) with chocolate — who can resist that?

(We can’t).

Our genius recipe developers made a few creative recipe tweaks to make this recipe unique:

  • a flaxseed “egg” helps bind all the ingredients together and has a neutral flavor so your tastebuds can focus all their attention on the chocolate!
  • black beans (you won’t taste them either, we swear!) help create the yummy brownie-dough texture.

And if you can’t get enough of no-bake desserts, check out these energy ball recipes!
