I know many of you follow my adventures on Snapchat and Instagram Stories and often wonder how it is that I wake up at 4:30 am a few times a week to get to my 5 am workouts. Besides having a strong cup of coffee to take with me on the way to the gym, I often steal a bite (or two) of these delicious brownie bites from the fridge.

You can see how fast they come together in this quick video and now that you know that they can be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to a week; you’ll soon be making them too!

Easy enough! That settles it. You probably have the ingredients in the pantry needed. Check, I’ll wait…

Not convinced? Let me share that more often than not, I bring a few of these in the car on the way to Karate since I’ve recently started Karate with my boys (actually, all five of us do it now!).

All five of us are going to classes and making karate a way for our family to stay active together. Since most of our classes start between 4:30 pm and 6 pm, the kids, dad, and I often need a little pick-me-up before karate to hold us over until dinner. This is where these easy and delicious snack bites come in!

    Can you make these without the raisins or substitute something else?

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      you can sub another dried fruit for consistency, prunes or dates would work well.

  8. JoAnn says:

    These are so delicious! I’ve shared with everyone I care about! I did sub dates for raisins and processed until it forms a ball, but they’re so good that I may never try it with raisins!

    1. Laura Fuentes says:

      the original recipe is with dates but because most people have raisins that’s why I made it with raisins. Raisins and dates are definitely a 1:1 substitute. I’m so glad you liked them JoAnn!
