Thank you Dr. Axe!! Love your brownie bites recipe!! !!!FANTASTIC!!!
Love your recipes, but being Type II diabetic, I would love it if you could post the nutrition information (carbs, fiber, protein, etc.) with your recipes, otherwise I am somewhat reluctant to try them. Thank you.
I would substitute for the dates, being on Keto; but over all, I think they would be yummy!
What would you use to substitute for the dates?
Dried figs or prunes work well.
Thanks Dr. Axe! I will definately be making these.
Do you have the nutritional breakdown of these? Curious to know protein count.
For those concerned about dates. although very sweet, they are also high in natural fibre, which helps balance the date sugar, helping
to modify any immediate insulin spikes. Most other sugars have been separated from their natural fibre.
, so become more prone to insulin spikes. Also, carob can be subbed for the chocolate, reducing caffein intake but retaining most of the health benefits of chocolate.
I’ve been soaking and dehydrating nuts before consuming the past couple of years. Will these work the same in this recipe?
I read that walnuts aren’t good for you if you have thyroid nodules. Is that true?
Any idea the amount of Carbs, calories and fat?
Absolutely perfect for my chocolate cravings & they’re sooooo YUMMY!! Thanks for sharing..

Need easy healthy recipes to feed very active working single 33 year old son who owns his city home and keeps me his 73 year old mom who has chronic health challenges. The good thing is I have had decades of healthy cooking attempts when possible. Especially like things to celebrate end of work week Fridays. Right now I am attempting Raw Brownie Bites recipe.
I noticed on your healthy food shopping list that you do not include sunflower seeds. Is there a reason for this?
Must I roll them into balls or press into a pan as suggested and then cut??
Be creative – make little snowman’s.
I am doing the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle. The only part of it im somewhat concerned about is the use of erythritol and xylitol even though they are ‘natural’ sugars. What is your opinion please? I have begun using monk fruit extract in place of some of their sweeteners. The goal of the program is to keep your blood sugar leveled and avoid spikes.
Hi Dr Axe. Loving your website all the way in New Zealand! Question: Are the nuts soaked before using them in this recipe? Or do they need to be unsoaked for these types of recipes? Thank you!
I think it would be safe to assume that if, in the directions, it doesn’t say “soak the nuts”, you don’t need to soak them! :)
maybe try sprouted nuts (they are dry at some health food stores ie: Wholefoods)
This recipe has come in handy for the holidays as I bought a good sized bag of dates and kept wandering what to do with them. We used to cut them, fill them with peanut butter and a walnut but then roll them in confectionery sugar. Not happening! So thanks for another awesome food idea. Happy Holidays too!
These look so yummy! Thank you for using dates as the sweetener too! Can’t wait to make these! I think I will add some hemp seeds to them as well for added protein.
The recipe says to press into a pan or mood yet the picture clearly shows they are rolled. Also, 1 full cup of cocoa? Seems a lot…..
Just found you on the Healthy Gut Summit, and I’m so glad!! My son is allergic to all nuts except almonds. what could we use in place of the walnuts? Thanks!!!!
You could try using almonds!
I just made these! They are so good . Can’t wait for my grandchildren to try them. Thank you so much!!!
Excited to try this! My husband is allergic to walnuts and I’m allergic to almonds. I’m assuming I can try this with something like cashews and pecans? Or would you not recommend it. Thanks!
Those would be great substitutes
I love your recipes but get very confused with cup measurements , could we have it in ozs or grames please ?
There are 8 oz. in a cup. When in doubt use a food scale
There are a lot of questions here that you can easily find answers – and often even learn more great stuff, like what a great thing medjool dates are – to if you just do a simple google search. Recipes on line give us a great start! But we can fill in a few blanks, and maybe even learn something new, by doing a little research! :)
I clicked on your link above, provided for nutrition facts, typed in raw brownie bites in the ‘food name’ box and it came up ‘no results’? Is this the correct link or perhaps this recipe is not included?
You would have to create your own recipe. This way you can add in the specific brands of each ingredient you use and get exact nutrition data
I usually add a little bit of coconut butter! delicious
But due to high carbs, i’m trying not to put them too often on the table. My hubby lost 110 pounds in the last year, I’m trying to offer him healthy, low carb snacks. Any suggestions?
Here are some good healthy snacks lists:
Dr Axe,, Thanks for all you do!
Hi Dr. Axe, just wondering can I use Stevia in the Raw packets. I’m letting Splenda go. I am type 2 diabetic so can I use raw honey and maple syrup?
Stevia is typically a better option for diabetics. I would consult with your physician regarding the best option for you personally
I love all of your recipes but would prefer not to use dates. Any suggestions for a substitute with lower sugar carb content?
coconut sugar or stevia
How would you replace the liquid using stevia or erythritol? I also would love to make these low carb, high fat.
Can you tell me how many calories in these?

How many calories are in a bite?
You can get nutrition data for it here: http://nutritiondata.self.com/mynd/myrecipes/welcome?returnto=/mynd/myrecipes
The database doesn’t list cacao powder! So how are we to know the correct caloric number?
I am concerned at the amount of carbohydrate and natural sugar in the dates. Could you please tell me about how many dates make a cup? Or roughly how many grams of dates in one cup? Thanks!
1 cup = about 175 grams
Delicious!! I made these the other day, and they are my new sweet treat!! Thank you for bringing Chocolate back into my life :)
