So I might be a bit of a dessert snob. Brownies have to be fudgey, cookies have to be gooey, and cakes have to have a heck of a lot of icing. I like what I like. Aaaand I like chocolate.
Don’t get me wrong, I still eat them even if they aren’t up to my standards. So maybe I’m less a dessert snob and more of a dessert… Whatever, women’s rights, do your thang, ain’t no shame!! I’m just particular about what kind of desserts get my stamp of approval, but I don’t discriminate. I don’t think I’ve ever turned down a dessert.
In my past life (aka my teenage years) I was obsessed with TGIFriday’s brownie sundaes. Holy goodness, they are delish. I’m talking like barely cooked, gooey brownie amazingness. With ice cream on top. For me, those were the gold standard brownies that I compared everything to. Then I made these and was like “TGIWho?”
I was in the kitchen and wanted to make something chocolatey and fun and obviously seriously delicious, so I started putting some ingredients in my food processor. This is the easiest and most delicious dessert. I really only ever want to eat this for desserts from now until
the end of time I come up with the next thing I’m obsessing over.
Like, I’m eating one right now and dying a little bit with every chocolatey bite.
Here’s how you make Paleo + Gluten Free Brownie Bites:
Process until everything is combined and begins to ball up, about 30 seconds. Use your spatula to chop up the ball and scrape down the sides. Add the almonds and process again for about 30 seconds until the almonds are chopped but still chunky.
With your hands, form ping pong sized balls and place in a container. Store in the fridge until ready to eat!
- 1 cup almond meal
