No-Bake Brownie Protein Bites (Keto Recipe)

Make these healthy no-bake brownie protein bites! They are keto-friendly, flourless, gluten-free, paleo-approved, & no refined sugar.

Today’s no-bake brownie bites recipe is inspired by a nut butter that I’d heard about and had to try from Manna Organics. Oh, my goodness. It’s amazing! Seriously addicting.

When I found myself going back to the jar for the second, third, and fourth time, I decided I needed to come up with a recipe for a healthier snack with this flavor combo.

I believe I’ve achieved it with this No-Bake Brownie Protein Bites recipe. I hope you will agree!

Ingredients

I wanted to capture the rich and satisfying chocolate flavor of Organic Nut Butter Dark Chocolate Pecan (affiliate link) but clean up the ingredients a bit.

I replaced the cane sugar with stevia and added some protein and healthy fat.

These are not quite as sinfully indulgent as the Manna Organics nut butter, but they are healthier and really do the trick when you need a chocolate fix!

Pecans and Raw Cashews add a delightful crunch and nutty richness, bringing texture to your bites and satisfying the snacking experience. I buy both in large bags at Costco.

Cacao powder is the backbone of chocolatey goodness, intensifying the richness and adding nutrients and flavonoids. I use Navitas Organics.

Chocolate protein powder amplifies the tastiness and makes your bites wholesome with essential nutrients. I also buy mine at Costco.

Erythritol offers sweetness without added sugars, allowing you to customize the sweetness level and enjoy guilt-free pleasure. Feel free to substitute with your favorite sweetener. I buy NOW Foods Erythritol.

Almond butter enriches your bites’ flavor and texture with its creamy texture and nutty undertones. I purchase it at Trader Joe’s or Costco.

Coconut flour is a subtle binder, ensuring the bites hold together while adding a tropical essence. I use Bob’s Red Mill.

Finally, Enjoy Life baking chips (free from 14 allergens and dairy-free) add even more to the sweetness I crave. They just add a bit of fun and turn each bite into a mini celebration of chocolate joy!

Variations

Remember, you can easily increase or decrease the sweetness with the amount of natural sweetener you use.

I am using Erythritol in this recipe, but feel free to use the natural sweetener you prefer. Other ideas include stevia, Xylitol, and maple syrup.

I have been working on dialing sweetness (and refined sugar) down in all areas of my food life. It’s amazing how your taste buds adjust; over time, you don’t require the sweetness you once did.

Storage

The best place to keep these protein bites is in the freezer. Make them ahead of time so they are ready at ALL times!

Here are a few pointers. First, put them in the freezer on a flat surface, such as a baking sheet or multiple plates.

Keep them separated until they freeze solid so they do not stick together. When frozen, put them in an airtight container or ziplock freezer bag with parchment or wax paper between the layers, if desired.

Another storage idea I love and have been using for years is these reusable freezer containers.

They are really easy to open and close, grab a snack, and put back in the freezer. Plus, they are pretty. 😁 Here’s a link to check them out. StarPack Home Freezer Storage Container Set (affiliate link)

Most protein balls should remain fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months. To thaw, take them out individually as craved, 😉 then place them on the counter at room temperature or in the refrigerator until soft enough to eat.
