Healthy cosmic brownie bites are no-bake, vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free! It’s a healthier copycat version of the Little Debbie cosmic brownies dessert. The easy recipe is made with medjool dates, almonds, walnuts, cocoa, and rainbow candy-coated chocolate chips. This 10 minute snack is great for kids and adults! #cosmicbrownies #browniebites #brownies #energybites #energyballs #proteinballs #proteinbites #healthydessert #healthysnack #nobake #nobakebrownies 


Units Scale
  • 1 and 1/2 cups medjool dates, packed
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 12 tbsp maple syrup (only as needed)
  • 1/3 cup candy coated chocolate chips


  1. Add medjool dates, almonds, walnuts, shredded coconut, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt to a food processor.
  2. Blend the ingredients until a sticky dough forms. If your dough is crumbly rather than sticky, add 1-2 tbsp maple syrup and blend again. The additional maple syrup will help the ingredients stick together. It will also create a sweeter flavor, so feel free to add it if desired.
  3. Transfer the brownie dough to a bowl. Add candy coated chocolate chips. Mix together. 
  4. Using clean hands, scoop and roll the dough into bite-sized balls. Enjoy!


  • Store cosmic brownie bites inside a sealed container. Keep at room temperature for 3 days or in the refrigerator for 1 week. Alternatively, store in the refrigerator for 1 week. If you would like to store them longterm, keep in the freezer for 3 months.
