Paleo Secretly Sweetened Walnut Brownie Balls



P is for Paleo. I am sure you have heard this word constantly these days. The Paleo diet is one of the healthiest ways you can eat because it has a nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay lean, strong and most importantly energetic! 

Paleo Secretly Sweetened


I don’t only like the Paleo diet because it’s healthy. I also like it because you can create absolutely delicious foods! Here is one of my favorite Paleo recipes. Paleo Secretly Sweetened Walnut Brownie Balls. I found this recipe on eMeals. If you want to learn more about eMeals you can see my review by clicking here.  On to the recipe.



1½ cups walnut halves or pieces


1 cup pitted dates


⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa


1½ teaspoons vanilla extract


⅛ teaspoon salt





Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Bake walnuts on a baking sheet 6 to 10 minutes or until toasted; cool.


Place walnuts in a food processor; cover and process just until ground.


Add dates, cocoa, vanilla and salt; pulse until well blended and smooth.


Shape mixture into 1-inch balls using hands.


Cover and chill brownie balls for several hours before serving.


Makes 22. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator up to a week.


Note: Dates and vanilla are what sweeten these little mouthfuls.




Do you do the Paleo Diet, why or why not?
