Almond Flour Brownie Bites Recipe
By Peanut Palate
🔪Prep Time: 15 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 35 mins
1 tbsp chia seeds sub: flax meal or chia meal
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp vegan butter, softened sub: neutral tasting oil such as refined coconut oil
½ cup white sugar sub: xylitol, coconut sugar
¼ cup oat milk sub: plant-based milk such as cashew milk, almond milk, soy milk, etc.
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup almond flour
¼ cup cocoa powder sub: cacao powder
⅛ tsp pink salt
1 tsp baking powder
¼ cup vegan semisweet chocolate chips optional / sub: dark chocolate
1Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2Mix the chia seeds and water in a small bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes to thicken.
3Once the chia seed mixture is ready after 10 minutes, use another bowl to cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
4Add in the chia seed mixture and mix again. Then add in the milk and vanilla and continue mixing.
5In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.
6Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined (don't over-mix).
7Stir in the chocolate chips.
8Oil six spots in a regular sized cupcake tray.
9Evenly divide the mixture into the 6 sections.
10Bake for 35 minutes. Check to make sure a toothpick inserted comes out clean before removing from the oven.
11Allow the brownie bites to cool down, then enjoy (I recommend vegan whipped cream or ice cream on it!)
12Store at room temperature in an airtight container.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
