Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup green banana flour {i.e. Let's Do Organic Green Banana Flour}
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup or to taste*
  • 2-3 tablespoons almond milk or other non-dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Melt chocolate chips in the a small microwave safe bowl, on high power, in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir, and microwave for an additional 30 seconds, or until chocolate chips are fully melted. Set aside and allow to cool slightly.
  • Combine banana flour, chopped pecans, cocoa, maple syrup, almond milk, vanilla extract, and salt in the bowl of a food processor. Process for 1 minutes then add melted chocolate chips to mixture, and process for an additional 2-3 minutes, stopping to scrape side of bowl as needed, until mixture is very fine fine and crumbly.
  • Using clean hands, form mixture into 8 ~ 1 inch balls, and place them on a serving dish, or in a storage container. If not consuming all of the Brownie Bites right away, you can store them in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 week,

Notes

*Feel free to add additional maple syrup if you find these brownie bites are not sweet enough for your tastes, as I tend to make my treats "less sweet" than some people are accustomed to.
