We love our fat bombs and energy bites to snack on. Our favorites include peanut butter balls, fat bombs, and these delicious no bake brownie bites. 

Whether you call them chocolate brownie bliss balls, no bake brownie balls, or brownie bites- They are all the same! Soft, fudgy, and chocolatey bites that are perfect between meals or when the sweet tooth strikes!

When I first made this easy recipe, I was going to call them brownie batter bites, because let’s face it- The dough was like eating straight-up brownie batter.

However, after refrigerating them, they were more like gooey, soft raw brownie bliss balls.

How to make no bake brownie bites

Start by mixing together all your ingredients, until fully combined. If you find that the batter is too thick, add a little extra syrup. If it is too thin, add more coconut flour. Either using a cookie scoop or your hands, form small balls of dough and place them on a plated lined with parchment paper. Refrigerate or freeze the no bake brownie bites until firm.

Brownie Bliss Balls Ingredients (and substitution tips!) 

  • Homemade Nutella– I used homemade Nutella, which is a keto, sugar free and low carb version of traditional Nutella. It’s also dairy free, so perfect for vegans. 
  • Coconut Flour– Helps form the bliss balls together.
  • Sugar Free Maple Syrup– Adds extra sweetness, and holds the brownie balls together

Healthy Nutella Substitutions

Refined sugar-free chocolate hazelnut spread- When in a pinch, I don’t mind using a store-bought vegan chocolate hazelnut spread. If you use this, it isn’t low carb or ketogenic diet friendly. This one, however, is paleo and low carb friendly

Generic store-bought chocolate hazelnut spread- Any generic chocolate hazelnut spread will work, however, you’ll likely need more coconut flour added for it to firm up. Be wary of the ingredient list of the one you end up using. 

Coconut flour substitutions

Coconut flour is a tricky ingredient and has a taste and texture unlike another other grain-free or traditional flour. Unlike other flours, it needs extra liquid and/or a smaller amount of flour to be able to form into no bake bites or no bake balls.

You CAN make this recipe without coconut flour, but take notes of the adjustments necessary to make them taste good and hold shape-

  • Oat Flour Gluten free rolled oats ground to a fine powder. You will need to use 2-2 1/2 times the amount of coconut flour. You would benefit from adding an extra tablespoon of your favorite sticky sweetener too, to add to the sweetness.
  • Almond Flour Almond flour or almond meal can be used, the latter having a grittier and nuttier flavor. Similar to oat flour, you’ll need twice the amount, and also some extra liquid sweetener of choice. 

Sugar free syrup substitutions

  • Pure maple syrup Mild tasting and mixes well. Pure maple syrup isn’t overly sweet either, so it is my favorite option.
  • Agave nectar Similar to maple syrup, agave nectar can come in a light or dark color. It is a little more expensive though.
  • Brown Rice Syrup- In terms of texture, this would be your best option- It is super sticky and holds up well. The taste is also very neutral, which is great!

For non-strict vegans, honey can also be used. However, the taste is very overpowering and you’ll generally need to add an extra tablespoon or two, as it isn’t as sticky as the other options.

  • Line a large plate with parchment paper and set aside.

  • Using your hands, roll into small bite-sized balls. Place balls on the lined plate and refrigerate or freeze until firm.


* Maple syrup, agave, and brown rice syrup are all 100% refined sugar free options. For a keto friendly alternative, I've used monk fruit sweetened maple syrup.

    1. Hey! I saw this recipe and I thought it looked amazing but never got around to it. Then I was at the store one day picking up ingredients for a coconut cream pie. I bought unsweetened, dried, bagged coconut flakes. Will that work or do I need coconut flour? Thanks!

    2. “Monk fruit sweetened maple syrup”? Can you elaborate, please? 1/2 c maple syrup plus how much monk fruit? Was that b/c the maple syrup wasn’t sweet enough, but you wanted to keep the sugar content down for keto?

      Thank you.

    3. Don’t most hazelnut spreads have sugar and vegetable oil? How is this keto? Doesn’t make any sense even though they look delish.

    4. O yum Arman,you’ve done it again, such an easy tasty keto recipe. Your recipes never fail.
      Happy New Year, looking forward to the year ahead with your tasty easy recipes
