3-Ingredient Easy No Bake Brownie Bites

No bake brownie fudge balls, no bake brownie energy bites or no bake brownie bites- Whatever you call them.

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of energy or protein bites, and bonus points if they taste like brownies. 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 (and freezing them, because let’s face it- the thawed texture is amazing), they were more like gooey, soft raw brownies. 

3-Ingredient Easy No Bake Brownie Bites

I have recipes for paleo energy bites, vegan energy bites and even gluten-free energy bites.

However, I was severely lacking in a paleo, vegan, gluten-free AND keto friendly energy bite recipe. 

Until now.

The beauty of no bake snacks is that they are a quick and easy snack idea to whip up at any moment. You don’t need an oven, refrigeration or even many ingredients. I mean, these brownie bites only need THREE!

What I also love about these homemade no bake balls is that they provide the perfect energy boost pre workout, post workout or as a sweet tooth fix. 

What ingredients are needed for homemade brownie no bake bites?

No bake brownie bites only need three ingredients-

  • Chocolate hazelnut spread
  • A sticky sweetener of choice
  • Coconut flour

3-Ingredient Easy No Bake Brownie Bites

What kind of chocolate hazelnut spread?

Homemade-To keep this recipe keto-friendly and completely sugar-free, follow this step-by-step recipe for homemade chocolate hazelnut spread or homemade chocolate hazelnut butter. It is a little more time consuming, but you are in control of how sweet the end product is.

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. 

What are the best 100% refined sugar-free sweeteners?

  • 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.

Substitutions for coconut flour?

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. 
  • A combination of oat flour and almond flour

Let’s quickly talk allergies! 

I’ve had a fair few readers wanting nut-free options, so to make these nut-free brownie batter energy bites, follow these smart swaps-

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a microwave-safe bowl or stovetop, melt your chocolate hazelnut spread with your sticky sweetener until combined.
  • Add your coconut flour and mix very well, until a soft, thick batter remains. If the batter is too crumbly, add some liquid until the desired consistency is achieved.
  • Using your hands, roll into small bite-sized balls. Place balls on a lined plate or baking tray and refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until slightly firm. 

Notes

* 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.
** For coconut flour-free alternatives, see post for details
3 Ingredient Paleo Vegan No Bake Brownie Bites (Keto, Sugar Free) can keep at room temperature, in a sealed container. They are best kept refrigerated or frozen for the best texture.

  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
