Paleo Chocolate Chunk Brownie Bites

Paleo Chocolate Chunk Brownie Bites

I’ve been wanting to post a treat for a while but with so many doing the Whole 30 it seemed like it would be kind of a jerk move. But now that it’s over…BRING ON THE TREATS! Ok, let’s not go HOG WILD, but this one is worth a share. I made these for my CrossFit buddies and they got rave reviews, so then I tried them again at Super Bowl and they are a keeper.

I got the inspiration from the Best Damn Brownie Recipe over at WOD Fuel, made a few tweaks and then turned it into Brownie Bites because, for me, having an entire tray of brownies sitting around is DANGEROUS. (Pass me a fork!) But having “bites” around force me to have a little more self control.

*Note: I said A LITTLE. :)

Anyway, super simple ingredients and method. Try them the next time you are craving a sweet treat! With only half a cup of honey for about 20 servings, it’s not too crazy.

    On the last day of my whole 30… Yay, I made it! I think I smell bacon and paleo brownies in my future. This brownie recipe looks so decadent.

    Making these now! Yay! We’ll see if I can pass them off on our company tonight.

    What do you use to grease your mini muffin tins? I used coconut oil, but mine ALWAYS stick unless I use paper cups. Keeping my fingers crossed!

      I have one of those Misto sprayers that I can put my own oil in so I just used that. It’s like Pam, but with less chemicals. ha! They didn’t stick at all. But I also have a fairly new non stick mini muffin pan…so maybe that’s it?

    So…yeah. We had a bit of stickage (totally a word). The bottoms of a few of them stuck. I may not have waited long enough to attempt to dislodge them though (what can I say? I’m not so patient when chocolate is involved!). The second batch is in paper liners — we’ll see if they stick to those.

    BUT…these are ah-mazing! So yummy, and definitely taste like a “real” brownie. Wow. Good idea to make them bite sized…I might seriously have to freeze these so I don’t eat them all at once! Thanks for another great recipe…love your blog!

      By the way…I used a little less honey, omitted the vanilla extract and added a TBLS cocoa powder. Yum!

    I love brownie bites! They were always one of my favorite treats to buy at the grocery store…it will be great to try a healthier, homemade alternative.

    Oh dear, I think I will be forced to make these soon! Love that the ingredients are basic and inexpensive…at least inexpensive as opposed to like a cup of almond butter. It kills me when I do the mental math on a recipe and realize it’s going to be $15 for half a dozen cupcakes!

      Oh my gosh, I’ve had the same reaction to some baking recipes. TWO CUPS of almond flour? An ENTIRE CUP of maple syrup. Oh boy! That’s the sort of thing that makes you wonder if you really can afford to eat healthfully.

    I literally said, “Oh my gosh” when I saw this post. I think these babies need to be on the agenda this weekend. I don’t have a mini-muffin pan, so I might make them in either my regular muffin pan or a square baking dish. Will report back with any useful results :-)

    OK…so I made a batch today, and oh.my.heck! So rich and the texture is awesome. I had a little bit of sticking issues, but my mini-muffin pan and I are rarely on speaking terms so it was expected. They definitely came out better when I let them cool completely in the pan, although that didn’t stop me from scooping out the sticky bits and eating them. I even cut back on the honey a bit (1/3 c) and they didn’t feel like they were missing anything.

    I had to go for a long, hard walk to undo at least a few of the ones I devoured. Great recipe!

    Any substitutions for the Ghee? I can’t seem to find it.

      You could make your own with butter or just substitute with some Kerrygold (or other grassfed butter.) I imagine coconut oil may work too, but I haven’t tested it. If you do, let me know how it turns out. :)

    Do you know where I can get decent high-cocoa chocolate that’s soy-free?

    • Holly

      I usually check Whole Foods first and then if I can’t find something there I do amazon. I like the Enjoy Life chocolate chips — they’re soy free — but I don’t think they are a 70% cocoa or anything. DELICIOUS THOUGH. LOL

        Aargh, the closest Whole Foods is two hours away. :(

        I guess I’ll have to keep looking online. Thanks for the help.

Welcome!
