Who doesn’t love chocolatey brownies? Fresh out of the oven, there are very few things more delicious. I like to make mine bite size for little hands and they always look so cute topped with Coconut Whipped Cream and fresh berries from the farmers market. I’ll pop these in my kids lunchboxes for a surprise treat but they’re a perfect recipe for a birthday party or any get together.


I made a batch of these for Gemma to take to her friends at soccer practice and they (of course) were devoured very quickly. Since they’re made with whole wheat and applaesauce (instead of tons of extra sugar) they’re a great choice. I’m always trying to sub different ingredients for a slightly healthier version while still maintaining tip top deliciousness. Try out Spinach Cake MuffinsBrown Rice Crispy Treats or Flourless Pumpkin Chocolate Muffins if you’re looking for more recipes like that.


Like I mentioned before, these double chocolate brownie bites are a bit healthier and lighter then traditional brownies without sacrificing a bit of the indulgence of an intensely rich dessert. Yes, there’s some apple sauce in them to cut down on the amount of fat and whole wheat flour for a bit of additional nutrition, but there’s also a deep chocolate flavor and mini chocolate chips to add to the glee of getting to eat one of these treasures in the middle of the day. 


Next time you go for the boxed brownies from the store, try these instead! They’re just as easy to make, are super decadent and have a deep chocolatey flavor that’s to die for. Let me know what you think by tagging me on social media!

Catherine is a mama of three. A Kentucky girl living in California. Here’s what I know: all kids can be great eaters and mealtime must be easy. I create simple, healthy recipes the whole family will love.


  1. Made these for the hubby’s birthday – for half the batch I added flaked coconut and chopped nuts to make them German chocolate. Turned out fantastic! Easy recipe to make.

  2. I found them very dense and sticky. Not sure what I may have done wrong? The we’re so-so the night I made them and were very dry by the next day. I stored them overnight in a plastic container with a lid.

  3. Kid and mom approved! Made these today…Yum! We will need to make lots for the freezer for school!

  4. I made these and I wondered shouldn’t there be baking soda or baking powder? Also for me they took closer to 25 minutes in the mini muffin tin to actually bake through. Hmmm…

  5. Such cute little brownie bites! I’m sure the kids love finding the treats in their lunchbox!

  6. These came out “rubbery” in the middle for me 🙁 I don’t see what I did wrong… I did not substitute anything, followed the recipe as it is. I’m going to try again tomorrow…

  7. Made these tonight and they came out great! I only wish I had made a double batch! There’s always next time.

  8. You should be able to sub spelt flour for whole wheat flour at a 1:1 ratio. Let me know how they turn out!

  9. These look delish!

    How about using spelt flour instead of whole wheat flour? Would I still use 1/2 cup?
