Ingredients for Tahini Brownie Bites
I ended up naming these energy bites Tahini Brownie Bites, because of how much they remind me of dessert.
They're chewy, chocolatey, and have the perfect sweet and salty balance that makes eating just one pretty hard.
To make these tahini brownie bites, you'll need the following 6 ingredients:
- Quick oats
- Ground flaxseed
- Cocoa powder
- Mix-ins (cacao nibs, mini chocolate chips, etc.)
- Liquid sweetener
For the liquid sweetener, I recommend you use a thicker sweetener such as agave, brown rice syrup or even honey, if you consume honey.
What is Tahini?
In case you aren't familiar with tahini, it's basically the sesame seed version of peanut butter.
Sesame seed get ground down into a smooth paste to create tahini!
You should be able to fine tahini at your local grocery store, however the best type of tahini is usually found at an international or middle eastern market.
You want to use smooth, runny tahini if possible!

How to Store Energy Bites
I love making large batches of energy bites because they keep for ages in the fridge AND can easily be frozen.
Fridge: To store these brownie bites in the fridge, simply place them in airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. (To be honest, I've even kept mine for 3-4 weeks and they are still fine! They just harden the longer the sit.
To thaw frozen energy bites, remove them from the freezer the night before you need them and allow them to thaw in the fridge.
