Gluten Free No Bake Brownie Energy Bites (V, GF): a one bowl recipe for fudgy, rich, 7-ingredient no bake bites that taste just like decadent brownies. Vegan, Protein-Packed, Gluten Free, Dairy-Free.
You HAVE to try these warmed up! Okay, before I said anything else, I HAD to get that out of the way. (Sorry for shouting this early in the day—but it HAD to be done… again.)
Q: So why warm them up? A: fudgy, melty—make that chocolate melty, warm, just… everything your chocolate-loving heart could want or need.
Think: fresh-baked brownies, y’all.
But without the work.
And you just have to try them in general–warmed or not. These brownie energy bites are so easy to make, delicious as all get out, and just… all the things. Make that all the CHOCOLATE things. 😉
Update: there’s a paleo version, just like folks have been asking for! 🙂 Check it out here: no bake paleo brownie bites. Enjoy!
You guys, I have been obsessed with these gluten free no bake brownie energy bites since I first made them. And when I made them again. Then when Erik made them. And then again when I made them. Alright, that’s way too many times in such a short period. But you’ll know exactly what I mean once you give these bites a go.
First of all, I’ve been meaning to make brownie bites to share with you for ages! <– Why yes, I did need to exercise a Herculean amount of self-restraint to not scream that. Hehe. Okay, so I love, love, love brownies. Have you tried my Best Vegan Brownies? How about my Gluten Free Vegan Brownies? Or… my Ultimate Fudgy Paleo Vegan Brownies?
If you answered no to at least one of those, I insist you try them all! Okay, fine… they all have about the same texture, but are adjusted just right for specific dietary needs. But you know what I’m talking about: fudgy, rich, insanely indulgent, soul-satisfying chocolate YUM.
I could make, talk about, dream over, draw paintings for, and build statues for brownies til the end of time.
How about you?
But my one pet peeve when it comes to brownies?
Like, sometimes you just have to have a brownie in the next 10 minutes, or you’ll faint. Right?? High-five if you totally agree with this.
Don’t keep me hanging! 😉
So the solution to this? Gluten Free No Bake Brownie Energy Bites . Yep, NO BAKE! If you’ve been around BB for awhile, you know that no bake is one of my fortes, my loves, one of my numerous food-related middle names, and so on and so forth. If you love no bake, you’ll have to try this chocolate cherry bite, this pecan pie bite, these chocolate chip cookie dough bites, and these oatmeal raisin bites.
But I digress. I know, what’s new, right?
These bites come together in less than 5 minutes, minus roll-time, of course. But you can obviously eat a bite or even just take a taste of dough before all the bites are done. They’re so rich, deliciously dense—just like a brownie should be, bursting with all the chocolate, and incredibly GOOD (and they actually count at energy bites!!).
And that’s before you heat these brownie bites up.
Once you warm them up, let’s just say I cannot be held responsible for portion control. Just… enjoy. 🙂
Meanwhile, you know I’m working on a paleo version to share with you guys. If you had a choice, tell me: would they be made with or without added sugar? And would you want them to be made with almond meal or coconut flour? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this!
In the meantime, let me regale you with why these Gluten Free No Bake Brownie Energy Bites will rock all of your dessert socks off! Wait, is that a thing? Because I totally need them like. Right. Now. They’d definitely have dancing cupcakes, swirly ice cream cones and of course, brownies on them. Right? 😉
Oh gosh, I’ve gotten off track again. Let’s credit these happy-inducing brownie bites for putting me in this flight-of-fancies kind of mood. So as I was saying…
