These easy brownie energy bites are like your favorite gooey chocolate dessert but in a healthier bite-size snack! Brownies that you can take on the go and as a snack?? Yes please!
Lets take a look at some of the ingredients:
- Oat flour – You can also make your own by blending rolled oatmeal it in a food processor or blender.
- Almond Butter – Any nut butter will work, but I love the flavor the almond butter brings to these balls.
- Maple Syrup – If you don’t have maple syrup you can replace it with any liquid sweetener, honey, agave, etc.
- Dates – make sure to remove the pit!
- Cocoa Powder
- chocolate chips (optional)
What is the best way to store them?
Personally I like to keep them in an air tight container in the freezer where they will last for several months, but trust me when I say that they definitely won’t last for three months. Before you eat, just take one out and let it sit at room temperature for five minutes before enjoying.
You can also keep them in the fridge as well where they will last for up to two weeks.

These easy brownie energy bites are like your favorite gooey chocolate dessert but in a healthier bite-size snack!
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1/2 cup pitted medjool dates, softened (see note)
- 3/4 cup almond butter
- 3 tbsp maple syrup
- 1/3 cup cacao
- pinch of salt (if your almond butter is unsalted)
- 2 tbsp water
- Chocolate chips to taste (optional. I used about 1/3 cup)
- Combined oat flour, dates, almond butter, maple syrup, cocoa powder, water, and salt in a food processor and blend until a smooth dough forms.
- Sprinkle in chocolate chips (if using) and pulse to combine. (The chocolate chips will start to become warm due to the heat of the dates and melt into the “dough” and it’s really delicious!)
- Roll into balls, place on a tray lines with parchment paper, and stick in the freezer until set. Store in the fridge or freezer
- To soften your date, let them sit in hot water for 5 – 10 minutes.
