Valentine’s Day is almost here and I have just the treat for you to share with your S/O, bestie or just for YOU! These triple chocolate brownie bites are so full of goodness (literally three types of chocolate!), and seriously the fudgiest little bites of bliss! I shared some with my bestie, and she loved them so much she wanted the recipe asap!
Think raw cacao powder, melted dark chocolate and dark chocolate chips all married together in this fudgy chocolate bite. And did you know how incredibly beneficial high quality dark chocolate is for you? It is brimming with the mineral magnesium, which most of us don’t get enough of, which is unfortunate because it’s one of the most important nutrients for overall health. Among many attributes magnesium calms nerves, lessens anxiety, regulates sleep, relieves muscle pain, contributes to bone health, boosts moods (duh!) and so much more. So if a little is good, then more must be better, which is what I’m going with on this recipe 🙂 And side note, I truly have trust issues with anyone who doesn’t like chocolate. I just have to get that out there.
These chocolatey gems are also gluten free because they are made with almond flour! Costco was out of my normal brand I buy, so I tried Barney Butter because it mirrored the texture of Blue Diamond perfectly. I really enjoyed baking with it. Finally, these are also low on the glycemic index because it is sweetened with just a little bit of maple syrup. It’s also rich in healthy fats thanks to coconut oil and a sprinkling of raw walnuts!

Also, this mug though (insert heart eyes emoji here)! It is an oversized stoneware mug and is the only mug I have that holds my insanely large amount of bulletproof coffee in the morning, is so cozy to drink my evening tea out of, and serves as a cute display for these little chocolatey bites and other treats! I can already see my favorite vanilla ice cream being served our of this too! I’m also loving its modern, square handle. Best part? It is only $4.95!
