Recipe type: dessert, snack
Serves: 10+


• 1½ cups almonds

• ½ cup hazelnuts

• ½ cup cocoa powder

• 1½ cup dates, pitted

• 1 Vega Maca Chocolate bar (optional), chopped

• 1 tablespoon organic maca powder

• 1 tablespoon organic coconut oil

• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

• 1 teaspoon sea salt


• Place nuts in food processor/high speed blender on pulse, and blend on high until the nuts are finely ground.

• Add the cacao and salt.

• Pulse to combine.

• Add the dates one at a time through the feed tube of the food processor while it is running.

• The end result will look like crumbs, but it should easily stick together when you press the mixture together (if not, add more dates).

• In a large bowl combine the ground nuts/dates with the remaining ingredients.

• Place this mixing bowl into the fridge for about 20 minutes to cool/harden.

• After chilled, roll the mixture into bite sized (about 1 tablespoon) balls and roll in the palm of your hand. Do this until the mixture is all rolled.

• Place rolled brownie bites onto a flat sheet or plate to cool before stacking into an airtight container for storage.

• Place in freezer or fridge until ready to serve.

• Store in an airtight container.

• These stay great in the freezer for long safe-keeping!

• Enjoy!


TEXTURE // I choose to leave the nuts a bit more chunky versus finely ground because I like the texture- feel free to grind the nuts more if you like a smoother texture.
CHOCOLATE CHIPS // vega maca chocolate is optional, it gives it a nice bite and extra chocolate flavor. The maca powder is what really gives it the malt flavor!
