Raspberry Brownie Date Bites

i just love making sweet and simple bite-sized treats, and these Raspberry Brownie Date Bites are absolutely perfect!

chocolate and fruit seems like such a simple combination, but i feel like they mix in the most powerful and delicious way! the depth of flavor here is INCREDIBLE.

the medjool dates help sweeten up this recipe, along with the brownie portion, of course.

the raspberry jam is actually really tart because it’s unsweetened, but that most definitely helps balance out the sweetness.

for the raspberry jam, you absolutely can add maple syrup to sweeten up the otherwise tart flavor. arrowroot powder helps thicken up the jam while giving it a beautiful glossy finish.

i use frozen raspberries to make the homemade jam, but you can use fresh as well! i just happen to always have frozen on hand and they’re typically cheaper.

if you don’t like raspberries, you could make any fruit jam of your liking. i think cherries, blueberries or strawberries would be fantastic, too! 🙂

the brownie layer adds the perfect amount of chewiness and chocolate to each bite. i use maple syrup to sweeten the brownies. they are no bake by the way!

pro tip, use a silicone ice mold to shape the brownie bites into perfect cubes. if not, you can just roll the brownie dough into balls and place them on top of flattened dates.

there’s also runny nut butter for creaminess and nuttiness in the brownie layer. i do recommend almond butter because it doesn’t overpower the other flavors.

although the brownie layer will have to be placed in the freezer, once you add the chocolate layer on top, you’ll want to store them in a fridge so they stay hardened but not impossible to bite into due to the dates.

the dates are flattened out to help make more of a sturdy surface for all of the layers to lay onto perfectly.

utilizing fruit in the summer for my recipes is one of my favorite things to do! it just feels so refreshing and easy! 🙂
