Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites

I'm positive that I will never get tired of brownie recipes.

When I search the word "brownie" on the search bar on this blog, there are five pages of results.  Five pages!!  That should be proof enough that I love me some brownies.

Some of my favorite recipes include my Waterfall Brownie Bites, Healthy Brookies, and Fudgy Pumpkin Crownies.  I can now gladly add this recipe to that list.

Despite the absurd amount of brownie recipes, each one is different in some way or another.  Some use oil, some use avocado, and some are fat free.  Some use rolled oats and some use flour.  Some are sweetened with honey, some maple syrup, and some banana.  The point is, each brownie recipe is special, and this one is no different.

I don't want you thinking that I'm just throwing a recipe you've already seen at you!

So what's different about these brownies?

I decided to experiment with using melted chocolate as well as cocoa powder to add chocolate flavor.  It worked great, and the chocolate chips definitely helped lend a rich chocolate flavor.  I also used oat flour, so these brownie bites are gluten free.

Aaaand these brownies are super duper delicious.  I know you're gonna love them!

You can see a couple avocado chunks in this one.  Don't worry, you can't taste them!

Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites

  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 1/4 cup special dark cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 2 tbsp mashed avocado
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease a mini muffin tin or a donut hole pan.  Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.  Add applesauce, honey, melted chocolate, avocado, milk, and vanilla and mix until a thick batter forms.  Scoop about 1 tbsp of batter at a time into prepared pan.  You will probably need to use two pans, or make two batches.  I used one mini muffin pan and a donut hole pan as well.  Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, until brownies are firm and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Recipe makes 18-20 brownie bites.  Store leftovers in the fridge.
