Brownie Bites



  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl and using an electric mixer, cream the butter with the brown sugar until it's light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the maple syrup and beat again until well combined.
  4. With the mixer on low speed, gently shake in flour mixture bit by bit.
  5. Add the chocolate and beat again until it all comes together.
  6. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or overnight.
  7. Preheat the oven to 325 F.
  8. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  9. Spread the granulated sugar on a plate or work surface.
  10. Using a teaspoon, scoop the dough generously and roll it between hands to make balls.
  11. Now roll those balls around in the sugar to coat them.
  12. Place on the baking sheet, leaving about 1 inch between the cookies.
  13. Bake for 9 minutes, or until the cookies just begin to crack and are set.
  14. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
