Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

If you told me 10 years ago that someday I’d love to babysit, I most likely would’ve rolled my eyes and thought you were crazy.

But spend enough time with kids and you really do begin to notice their childhood sense of innocence and wonder about the world wearing off on you.

I spent Thursday night taking care of a friend’s incredibly precocious and adorable girls, rediscovering Barbie dolls, princesses, couch cushion forts, and the Disney channel… And trying to explain dial-up internet and a VCR to someone with her own tumblr page who’s had a cell phone since birth.

Another amazing thing about children is that they just never seem to run out of energy.

Even after the Barbies went to Prom and the princess married the dragon (don’t ask :-?), my babysitting charges weren’t the slightest bit tired. So we headed to the kitchen, because what child—or adult, for that matter—doesn’t love throwing random ingredients into a food processor and seeing what turns out?

Today’s recipe is for our favorite of Thursday night’s kitchen experiments: chocolate peanut butter brownie bites.

We ate our snacks under the couch cushion fort.

    Omg these are so delicious. I made them to the exact recipe but I made another batch with coconut butter in place of peanut butter so I could send them as kindergarten lunchbox snacks and they were just as good only allergy and a little healthier!

  2. Jamie says

    I had a major chocolate craving and a new package of dates. I googled the two and your website and voila! These delectable little bites did not dissapoint. So yummy. Exactly what I needed.

    OMG. A little trouble with big pay off. These are addictive and good for you. Make like a quadruple batch you’ll be glad you did. Love love love these.

    I just made these they are very rich and full of chocolate flavor. I used PB2 4 tbls with 4 tbls of water and made the peanut butter. I left out the chips, mine came out to 36 calories per ball, I made 8 balls total. These will certainly satisfy the chocolate craving.

    I am planning on making these soon but I don’t use the quick oats. Could I use old fashioned oats? Should I do anything to them 1st to make it ready for this recipe? Thanks! I will review once made 😉
