Cacao, Peanut and Bee Pollen Brownie Bites Featuring Indigo Herbs

Hello all, how are we, did you have a nice Easter? I did although I drank too much cider on Good Friday which was not great, I did enjoy having four days off work, a long weekend is always nice. 

Now I ate way too much chocolate over Easter but that seems like ages ago so I am more then ready to eat more but I'm keeping it healthy at the mo with some yummy homemade brownie bites made with lots of healthy ingredients some of which came from the fabulous Indigo Herbs. I love Indigo Herbs, all their products are so good and you can get so many great ingredients in one place, if you love healthy whole foods, superfoods and herbs then you need to check them out. 

I used some great ingredients in my brownie bites which makes them perfect for a pre/post workout snack, breakfast on the go, daytime pick me up or a pudding. I can eat cacao anytime of the day and I'm pretty sure there are plenty of you that can too! 

Cacao, Peanut and Bee Pollen Brownie Bites

(makes 12-15)

1/2 cup Indigo Herbs cacao
200g medjool dates
1/2 Tbsp Indigo Herbs lucuma powder
1/2 Tbsp Indigo Herbs maca powder
4 Tbsp raw peanut butter
1 Tbsp bees pollen 
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 1/2 cups of unsweetened desiccated coconut

To make:

Put the coconut, dates, cacao, lucuma, maca and peanut butter in a high speed blender until you get the above consistency. Pour out the mixture into a bowl then add the bee pollen and chia seeds and mix them in, these can be omitted if you want to keep the brownie mix plain. Form balls to your preferred size with your hands.


Keep your brownie bites in the fridge and get them out 10 minutes before eating so they soften when you are wanting to get your snack attack on.

I've never made my own raw/energy bites before and it is so easy I will definitely be making more in different flavours so watch this space. 

Right lovely readers I need to get ready for the week ahead so I shall say farewell and hopefully see ya again this week.
