Brownie Bites - LCHF (Low Carb High Fudgy)

Today my new dessert recipe debuts on Honeyville's site. It's for Brownie Bites! I've been wanting to make Brownie Bites ever since I received a Brownie Bite Pan from one of my sons for Christmas. No worries if you don't own a special brownie bite pan because these can easily be baked in a mini muffin pan as well. But, I must admit the cube shaped brownie bites are pretty cool.

These brownie bites are made with my favorite Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour, which in my personal opinion, is the best almond flour to use for grain-free baked goods (which many of you know from your own personal baking experiences). I used deep dark Varlhona cocoa powder, but most any cocoa powder would also work as well. I also used Kerrygold butter and Swerve confectioners sweetener to make these amazing little bites the best. You could use granular sweetener, too, but I prefer the confectioners style because it is less gritty (sometimes erythritol can be that way). If you don't have confectioners, simply grind the granular version and powder it.

These brownie bites would be great frosted or glazed. I made mini "brownie shortcakes" by topping them with whipped cream and fresh berries...YUMMY!  I've been enjoying them all week long and I got three thumbs up from my hubby and sons (who are not grain free like I am). They also thought they were great and said you could not tell they were grain free (YAY!). Check out a few pics below. You can get to the recipe for them by clicking here: Brownie Bites. Enjoy!

What can I use in place of ground chia? Thank you can't wait to make these!

Hi Mindy,

You could try swapping it for ground golden flax instead if you have that. :-)

A question: Have you changed the website? I seem to get kidnapped to Pinterest when I search, but I just want to search this site. Could you send a link to your cheesecake recipe

Hi Linnie,

Thanks...LOL. I've never been called that before! Yes, here is the link to my cheesecake recipe post: http://www.gourmetgirlcooks.com/2013/12/no-bake-cheesecake-w-pecan-cinnamon.html

I wonder how you are ending up on Pinterest? Do you click on the "Pinterest Board" on the right side of my blog maybe? Let me know if I can help with that. Hope you enjoy it. :-)
