This recipe calls for several ingredients, but all are things we use in the regular iDiet menu plans so nothing goes to waste!
1 ¼ cups All Bran Original cereal (or see this fiber cereal blog post for alternatives)
2 tsp nut butter of your choice (peanut, cashew, almond, etc)
1/3 cup unsweetened dutch-process cocoa
½ cup plus 1 T 30-calorie unsweetened almond milk
¼ cup plain fat-free Greek-style yogurt
2 tsp chia seeds
Non-calorie sweetener of your choice such as stevia: 8 packages or to taste
Mix together the cereal and almond milk and allow to stand for about 15 minutes until they can be mashed with a fork to mix well.
Add all the remaining ingredients except the chia seeds and mash together.
You should have a stiff but slightly sticky mass (add a little more almond milk if too stuff).
Mix in the chia seeds and divide into 8 pieces. Roll each one into a round in your hand.
At this point your raw brownie bites are ready and deliciously filling – they freeze well wrapped in saran wrap — which is a great tip to prevent over-eating: Keep them in the freezer and only defrost what you need.
