Dining In - Chocolate-Chip Brownie Bites

Chocolate-Chip Brownie Bites - Chloe's Kitchen

These delicious, chocolately treats remind me of the popular Dunkin' Donuts Chocolate Munchkins! They are a different consistency and much denser (and vegan!), but the flavor is certainly similar. At first when I read this recipe I wasn't totally bought into the idea of taking a perfectly good pan of brownies and smooshing the partially cooked batter into small balls. 

I get it now :) They are more like gourmet truffles than a plain ole pan of brownies, and unfortunately easier to eat this way, too! I will definitely make these again - the first batch disappeared too quickly. You can find this recipe and others in Chloe's Kitchen (buy your copy here). 

1 cup vegan chocolate chips
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plain almond milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup mini vegan chocolate chips (optional, I did not use these)
Powdered sugar for finishing touch!

Grease an 8x8 inch pan. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 

Heat chocolate chips in the microwave until fully melted (use medium power, so you don't burn the chocolate). 

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients (flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt). In a separate, small bowl mix milk, oil, vinegar, and vanilla. Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix together, don't overstir. Add in the melted chocolate and stir. If opting for the added mini chips, stir into batter. 

Pour batter into pan. Bake for 20-30 minutes, the middle should be soft, somewhat moist. Remove from oven and let cool until you can touch the brownies.

Using a tablespoon, scoop out the brownie batter and roll into balls. Skip the more cooked parts, like the edges because this will make the balls fall apart. Roll balls in the powdered sugar. Done.

I stored these in the fridge when I was done.
