Hazelnut Mocha Brownie Bites (Keto & Paleo)

This post contains affiliate links.


Bringing two of my favorite foods in this recipe; coffee, hazelnut and chocolate. Can't get any better than this and I'm super excited to share this amazing recipe with you today! If you are into prepping healthy sweets, chocolate and coffee, then this recipe is for you.


These are my version of Ferrero Rocher Brownies... since we are using the key ingredients that make those truffles what they are. But instead I'm using healthier ingredients, the recipe is as good and indulgent as it could be!



For the the brownies I decided to use Lakanto's Suntella, a sunflower seed chocolate spread that taste amazing and resembles pretty much the classic hazelnut chocolate spread, it's important that this spread is keto friendly and AMAZING! I love having it on stock, specially because we save more money using code PURELYHL con any of their orders.



I also used raw hazelnuts and a bit of hazelnut butter to increase the touch of flavor of hazelnuts. And to keep things gluten free I used one my my favorite kitchen and baking staples, coconut flour.



Coconut flour is also a great paleo and low carb substitute. I really like using it because is also one of the cheapest flours, it goes a long way and it's a great way to increase that fiber intake while making low net carb recipes.



Here are the ingredients for these healthy Hazelnut Mocha Brownie Bites:



So many familiar ingredients and brands here. You can tell that I'm a creature of habit... kind of. Or just the proof that you can use simple baking staples and create different recipes, that's the fun of cooking and baking!



Well, and speaking of more fun... the coating is also a great key factor for this recipe! And for that I melted some of low carb and keto friendly chocolate from Jojo's to add some flavors and nuts (used Raspberry Dream and you can get a discount using code PURELYHL on your check out!).



Also super easy to make! Grab your cookie scooper and your mixing bowl!

  1. Preheat the your oven at 350.

  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a deep bowl.

  3. Incorporate liquid ingredients, including the single chocolate melted bar and mix again.

  4. Using a cookie scooper place 24 balls in a baking tray.

  5. Bake for 20-24 minutes.

  6. Once the bites are baked and cooled. Melt the remaining chocolate bars and carefully deep each one into the chocolate. Top with granulated monk fruit.



These are just a crowd pleaser and they make a great center piece for your friend gatherings! Or maybe to give away in a cute mason jar as well! Who wouldn't appreciate something bake with love... and that includes chocolate and hazelnut?



You can also freeze these inside a plastic bag and have them ready to attack that sweet tooth!


Now you know the basics about this simple recipe, and how easy it is to make! Also great to share with your loved ones since this recipe is:

  • Gluten Free

  • Low Carb

  • Keto Friendly

They are great to enjoy along with a cup of coffee or your favorite latte, while watching a movie or just sharing with a friend. Who can say no to a good cookie?



So for all the pecan and cookie fans, are you ready to get started? Don't forget to share, pin, save or bookmark this recipe! Remember to spread the joy and this recipe, anyways, have a great day everyone!



With love,

María
