Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for No Bake Brownie Bites. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

Both gluten-free old fashioned oats and regular oats work great for this recipe. I have not tested it with quick oats.

Cacao powder for that deep, rich chocolate flavor.

Ground flax for an added boost of fiber and protein. You can omit if you don’t have it on hand.

Maple syrup for a bit of all natural sweetness. You can also use honey, agave or date syrup.

Almond butter or cashew butter work the best for this recipe. However if you want to make them nut free, then opt for sunflower seed butter or oat butter. 

You can’t have brownies without chocolate chips!

I made these when I was pregnant & they were such a great snack!!! They held up really well in the freezer& all I needed to do was thaw for about 5 mins. Definitely worth a try

Hi, thank you for the delicious recipes. I am allergic to oats. Can I substitute oat flour for any other flour like almond perhaps. Thank you. Have an amazing day!

Hi Dennis! Yes, almond flour will work too but you will need to add more than what you’d add for oat flour. So, just keep adding in a bit more at a time until you reach the right consistency.
