    What is a serving size for these?

    Do you think I can sub almonds for the walnuts and have the same result?

    Just made these into little brownie bites and they are to die for! After realizing I didn’t have the exact ingredients, I put my twist on the recipe. For instance, instead of walnuts I used 1/4 cup cocount almonds and 1/4 cup roasted salted almonds. I loved the slight salty tone with the sweet cocoa powder. I also added shredded coconut in the food processor to add additional coconut flavor. I noticed mine came out a bit dry at first because I added 1 scoop of protein powder, so I added a squeeze of honey and 2 tablespoons of water to help it form into a dough like consistency. After I rolled the brownie dough into 1 tablespoon balls, I rolled them in shredded coconut for additional texture. The recipe is definitely one to hold onto!
