Making ourselves and our children nutritious treats can seem overwhelming, but it doesn't have to be. This recipe calls for only FOUR ingredients. We all love a yummy piece of chocolate to comfort us from time to time. This is our all time favorite family treat to make and the best part is that we can indulge anytime we want without the guilt or sugar! I love to make a few batches of these and stick in the fridge. They are wonderful for the kids lunches or after school snack. I have even stuck these in the cooler for a beach trip with some carrot sticks and watermelon and called it lunch!!
You would never know these brownie balls are packed with nutrients, antioxidants, and protein by how divine they taste. Sugar free, gluten free, dairy free!! Need I say more?
