Walnut Brownie Bites

Recipe: Walnut Brownie Bites

These brownie bites are a great dessert when you want something satisfying and chocolaty but not overly indulgent. Their sweetness comes from medjool dates.

The bites are easy to make and taste chewy, like cookie dough. As a bonus, they contain one of my top 10 beauty foods: walnuts. These omega-3 rich nuts keep skin and hair healthy. Walnuts also contain the antiaging antioxidant vitamin E.



1⁄2 cup rolled oats

1⁄2 cup walnuts

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1⁄8 teaspoon salt

1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract

2⁄3 cup medjool dates, pitted and chopped


In a high-speed blender or food processor, blend oats, walnuts, cocoa powder, and salt until there are no large chunks. Add the dates and toss them in the oat mixture to coat them so they don’t stick to each other. Add the vanilla extract and blend until a smooth dough forms. Roll small portions of the dough into balls. Place the balls in the fridge for at least one hour to chill.
