Alright guys, you asked for them and so here they are.

I have to say, this might’ve been the first time that while editing pictures, I was seriously questioning my sanity with throwing these out into the internet. I mean seriously. Look at them. I wasn’t kidding about the poop reference.

I actually hate potty humor. It’s gross, it makes me uncomfortable and I deal with enough real life “potty issues” living with a man (and a dog that thoroughly enjoys coating her whole body with shit) that I don’t need it thrown into normal conversation as an attempt to be funny.

But….these balls. There’s just no denying the similarities. And if you’re thinking “oh, it’s not so bad.” I give you this picture.

The ground flax seed just puts it over the edge, no?

Every time I’ve pulled this picture up on the computer while editing and writing this post, I’ve either cringed or laughed out loud. It’s a weird mix of emotions.

So here’s the low down on these. Despite their appearance, they are complete fudgy, salted brownie, truffle like bliss for less than 80 calories a poop pop and over 5g of protein each.

I know I’ve sung the praises of the raw brownie bite thing before (and those are still very good) but these might actually be better.

I only have two regrets.

1. their unfortunate appearance.

2. not making more than six.

Make them, eat them, just don’t take pictures of them and post them on the internet. One set of pictures of these is enough.

Wow, wasn't expecting much but really enjoyed these. I don't think you included a serving size with the recipe, but my brain convinced me the recipe was for 1 :)

Hmph. If the appearance is so un-appetizing, why not change it? Would it be criminal to, say... roll them in a little additional cocoa powder? Or coconut flour? Or finely chopped nuts? o.O

These "fudge balls" not only look gross they taste gross too! :( I just made them and tasted them and there is way to much flax seeds in it! Do you know why they would taste sooooo gross?
