Coconut Almond Brownie Bites – California

We love almonds and so does California. The Golden State produces about 80 percent of the world’s almonds and the entire U.S. supply.

A combo of brownies and Almond JoysAlmonds are one of the highest sources of Vitamin D and magnesium and are a tasty way to pack in some protein post-workout.

This recipe definitely falls into the indulgent category but we love the combo of almonds with coconut and chocolate. For a bit of a flavor boost, toast the almonds on a dry skillet on medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes, watching closely so that they do not burn.
