I’m back with another incredible recipe from the Healthy Glow Co. HGG Reset. I’m currently on Week 2 of the 4 week nutrition program and am feeling amazing. With tons of veggies, plenty of protein, and zero refined sugars — these recipes have been giving me more energy and leaving me feeling satisfied.
That’s why today I’m sharing one of our amazing treats in the program: my no bake omega-3 mint brownie bites.
These delicious mint brownie bites are made with 6 simple, wholesome ingredients, and guess what? Not one of them is sugar.
You read that right – the only sweetener in these little bites of goodness is dates. Dates are an amazing source of fiber and vitamins, and their natural sweetness is perfect for adding to no bake snacks and treats.
The mint brownie bites have a walnut & date base that’s packed with omega 3’s, plus a bit of cocoa powder and mint extract to give them an indulgent taste that’s actually healthy.
What else can I expect from the HGG Reset?
The 4-week HGG Reset has a whole section of snacks and treats like these amazing mint brownie bites, and they’re all made with wholesome ingredients that we selected with our in-house registered dietitian. When we created the reset we focused on feel-good ingredients to add to your meals, rather than “off-limits,” “yes/no” lists.
In our sweets & treats we made sure to add all-natural, unrefined sweeteners (like the dates in these bites!) Natural sweeteners from sources like dried fruits and honey are great for adding flavor to recipes without having that blood sugar spike that we get from foods with refined sugars. That way you can enjoy your daily treat without having even more sugar cravings, and without feeling a “crash” later on.
All-natural treats for everyone!

No Bake Omega 3 Mint Brownie Bites
- 4 ounces raw walnut halves (~1 cup)
- 1 cup packed pitted dates
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon mint or peppermint extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
Place walnuts and dates into a food processor. Process for about 1 minute or until walnuts and dates come together well. Walnuts should be slightly chunky.
Add in the remaining ingredients: cocoa powder, vanilla extract, mint extract and salt. Pulse until a dough forms. The dough texture should be thick and clumpy, and possibly come together into a ball. If it isn't, then add 1 or 2 tablespoons of warm water.
Use a cookie dough scoop to grab 1 tablespoon of mixture and then roll into a ball. Place onto a small baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Repeat until all the mixture is gone. Place in fridge for 30 minutes to allow balls to chill and harden a bit. Makes 8 brownie bites.
Brownie bites can be kept in freezer in a freezer ziploc bag for up to 3 months.
