Freezer Brownie Bites

I don’t particularly like to use my oven during the summer months.  Sometimes it’s a necessity, or perhaps I’m really craving a particular food/treat that needs baking, but for the most part I try to limit my oven use when the weather is hot.  And that’s when recipes like these Freezer Brownie Bites come in handy – a recipe where you can have your brownies, without the heat of the oven (or the stove-top).

These Freezer Brownie Bites are made using 9 simple ingredients.  They are free of grains, gluten, eggs, dairy and nuts.  This allergy-friendly recipe is perfect for a sweet summer treat!

These are best eaten right out of the freezer (no need to defrost).  I topped this batch with home-made coconut butter (I also recommend THIS brand), drippy almond butter and bee pollen.
