Rich, extra-chocolatey, and simple to make, raw brownies are always a winner. I love to use pecans to add a rich, buttery flavor that combines perfectly with the natural sweetness of dates. Buy the softest dates you can find, and don’t forget to save some slices for tomorrow’s breakfast!


  • 1 1/2 cup walnuts

  • 1 cup soft medjool dates, chopped

  • 1 Tbsp + 2 tsp cacao powder

  • 1 Tbsp cacao nibs

  • 1 vanilla bean

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 cup cashews, soaked for 6h

  • 1/2 cup almond mylk

  • 1/4 cup cacao powder

  • 4 dates

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted

  • Pinch of salt


  1. Combine brownie ingredients in a food processor and process until a sticky and smooth dough forms.

  2. Fold in some extra chopped walnuts and cacao nibs to get a crunchy consistency.

  3. Transfer to a 8″ baking pan (lined with parchment paper or greased with coconut oil).

  4. Press the dough down using a spatula or the back of a spoon until flat and firm.

  5. Let rest in the fridge while preparing the frosting.

  6. Combine the frosting ingredients (except for the coconut oil) and blend until nice and creamy.

  7. Stream the coconut oil into the mixture.

  8. Using an offset spatula spread the frosting evenly over the brownie.

  9. Cut into slices and garnish with cacao nibs
