Chocolate lover? You’re going to want to bookmark this recipe! These delicious Skinny Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites make some simple ingredient swaps to create the perfect, Nutrisystem-approved dessert. Say goodbye to sugar-filled candy and cake—once you’ve tasted this mint-chocolate cheesecake combo, you just might have a new favorite dessert.

The crust acts as the base to these Skinny Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites. Made with nutrient- and protein-packed walnuts, a food processor can be used to blend these with Medjool dates, unsweetened cocoa powder and a pinch of sea salt. Once a sticky dough has formed, it can be pressed into the bottom of each paper liner in your muffin tin. The next piece of this recipe is our personal favorite: The mint filling. Made with avocado, Greek yogurt, coconut oil, honey and mint extract, this creamy filling adds the perfect burst of flavor to balance out the other ingredients. This recipe is completed with the chocolate topping, which is made from just three ingredients: Coconut oil, cocoa powder and liquid Stevia. After your mint filling has slightly firmed in the freezer, you can pour this chocolatey deliciousness on top each of the mini cheesecake bites and pop it back in the freezer to set.
