How to make chocolate brownie bliss balls?

Bliss balls, energy balls, or energy bites, whatever their name are easy to make and ready in 10 minutes. The only important part to make delicious energy balls that are soft and consistent is to use a food processor. In fact, the energy ball batter is thick and sticky and the recipe is very messy if made in a blender.

How to make vegan no bake brownie bites

That is why you need to use a food processor, they have a larger bowl and removable blade, that makes it easy to create soft, fudgy chocolate brownie balls. Then, the ingredients needed are simple pantry ingredients and no oil! This is an oil-free vegan recipe for sweet lovers! Let’s see the ingredients you need to make fudgy, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate balls without an oven!

  • Walnuts – you can also use pecan nuts if preferred but you need a high-omega-3 nut to create fudgy brownie bites so don’t swap for almonds or they will end up dry.
  • Pecan– the combination of both nuts creates the most delicious texture. However, if you are running out of pecans, the recipe will work well with walnuts only or seeds like sunflower seeds.
  • Coconut flakes – they add the most delicious sweet coconut flavor to these chocolate bites.
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Medjool dates – or dealer dates, I provide the recipe with weights for precision so you can swap one variety of dates for another.
  • Maple syrup – while Medjool dates are sweet, you need an extra boost of liquid sweetener in this recipe to achieve the perfect brownie sweetness. Other vegan refined sugar-free sweetener options are agave syrup, rice syrup, or coconut nectar.
  • Unsweetened almond milk or any plant-based milk you love like oat milk, rice milk, etc.
  • Salt – optional but it enhances the chocolate flavor of these no-bake brownie bliss balls
  • Vanilla

How to store no-bake energy bites?

That is the great part about energy bites, they store for a very long time in the fridge. Usually, you can store these for up to 3 weeks in an airtight container in the fridge, but you will probably eat them all before that time! Another option is to freeze the balls and defrost 1 hour before you expect to eat them.
