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.

Brownie fudge bites

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.

  1. This is a great treat for everyone knowing that now everyone love to bake. I bet this is less time consuming.

  2. Upon first glance, I thought “damn, these are date balls aren’t they” I was sad cause I’m out of dates. But then I look at the ingredients, and woop – no dates! Also, I have all the ingredients! OH mama!! :)

  3. I love all the healthy stuff that went into these fudge balls, they look so rich, almost like underdone brownies. And, the fact that they only have 80 calories per poop makes me wanna make them. Gotta gather up ingredients though coz I don’t have any protein stuff.

  4. They look incredible and so fudgy and chewy. Great pics, on that brand-new never used towel, too. Hope they didn’t leave a black mark. Lol

    Have you always watermarked your images? I am thinking I have to start. They keep getting used on other people’s blogs and passed off as theirs.

    1. I just started doing it a few days ago. I’ve found so many pins of my stuff that lead to nowhere so for now I’m just doing it on the image that I put the pin it button under. I should really do it on all of them but I guess that’s just me being lazy. I fought it for some time but between pinterest dead ends and people grabbing images w/o asking, it was time.

  5. I definitely want to make these little love balls! Do you think I could sub a tbsp of brown rice protein powder + a tbsp cocoa powder for the chocolate protein powder?
