Mini Paleo Brownie Bites

by danielle on December 8, 2012

Today is National Brownie Day and to celebrate I’ve got a Paleo brownie recipe to share. These are in perfect mini portions so you won’t overdo it with a big slice. They are just big enough to satisfy your sweet tooth! Plus the recipe only makes 12 mini bites so you don’t have extras lying around for days. What better way to celebrate National Brownie Day than with these!

Paleo brownie bites
Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup almond butter
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (I used enjoy life brand)
  • 2 eggs
  • tsp vanilla

Directions: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine your almond flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.
  3. Add in your eggs, honey, vanilla, and almond butter blending well.
  4. Lastly stir in your chocolate chips.
  5. Pour the batter into greased mini muffin tins.
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes.

Hahaha exactly! These are perfect for that!

oooooh . . . they’re like those 2-bite brownies I see at the store. Except, with MUCH better ingredients! :)

Didn’t even think of that but that’s exactly what they’re like!

This looks so easy! I can’t wait to give this a try. I usually don’t keep desserts in the house but this wouldn’t cause me any guilt for indulging. :)

danielle December 8, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Perfect! I love that it doesn’t make a ton either cause then you don’t have them around for days!

Yum….this looks like a great recipe! I may try these with some added peppermint for the holidays. Thanks for the reminder of National Brownie Day!

These would be great with peppermint! I have a chocolate peppermint cupcake recipe coming soon too!

Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin December 8, 2012 at 2:03 pm

Definitely homemade! I don’t put anything extra in mine – I like just a good ol’ classic brownie!

I love them plain too!

Amanda @ .running with spoons. December 8, 2012 at 4:56 pm

These look soooooo chocolatey and delicious! Definitely saving this recipe. I love a good homemade brownie, but I usually keep things pretty simple and just put chocolate chips in it.

I’m not sure I have ever made brownies from scratch! Ah! In fairness to me, I don’t bake brownies that often :)

Reply

danielle December 8, 2012 at 9:29 pm

I don’t that I’ve had them from scratch either aside from these paleo ones!

I’m not supposed to eat chocolate since I suffer from migraines, but I don’t think I care right now. Those look awesome!

Thanks so much Lisa!! Don’t get a migraine though ;)

You think coconut flour or whole wheat flour would work in place of the almond flour girl?

Reply

danielle December 9, 2012 at 3:51 pm

Absolutely! I’d do whole wheat. The coconut flour might change the taste a bit!

Christina December 12, 2012 at 2:49 pm

Amazing as usual

danielle December 12, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Thank you =)

Do you need to warm the almond butter since it is supposed to be stored in the refrigerator after opening? How do you do this? Thanks. New to Paleo cooking, so have many questions.

danielle December 30, 2012 at 8:44 pm

No worries! Ask as many questions as you need. You don’t necessarily need to warm the almond butter but if it is too hard to mix you can microwave it for 10 seconds or so at a time until it is soft enough to mix!

sherry January 5, 2013 at 2:06 am

Thank you, thank you,thank you!! Also, how do you use coconut concentrate? I have a recipe that called for it, and chunks of it remained in my batter, however, I left it in its solid state. Should I have warmed it, or what would the conversion be to coconut milk? Not a big fan of the coconut taste coconut flour gives to end product. Like almond flour much better.

Reply

danielle January 5, 2013 at 4:22 pm

Hmm I’ve never used coconut concentrate before. I usually stick with canned coconut milk in my recipes. I also warm my coconut oil though before baking so I imagine it would be the same!

sherry January 5, 2013 at 4:12 am

These were wonderful!!! Loved them. Now I have a delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe and brownie recipe. Thanks for giving this chocolate lover a dessert I don’t have to feel guilty over!

danielle January 5, 2013 at 4:22 pm

So happy you enjoyed them Sherry!

Do you have the nutritional analysis per serving? Or did I miss it somewhere? :D
Thanks

Reply

danielle January 22, 2013 at 12:57 pm

Nope I usually don’t post nutrition info! I’m not a big fan of calorie counting in general. These are definitely a once in a while treat, not an everyday thing so make them, enjoy them, and don’t worry about calories/fat/etc… :)

Yum! Can you make these with chia egg instead of eggs?

Reply

You could! They might come out a bit different though.
