  • 2 cups whole walnuts

  • 2 1/2 cups Medjool dates, pitted

  • 1 cup raw cacao
  • 1 cup raw unsalted almonds, roughly chopped

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Chia seeds (optional) 

  • Hemp hearts (optional)



1.Place walnuts in food processor and blend on high until nuts are finely ground. 

2. Add the cacao and salt; pulse to combine. 

3. Add the dates one at a time through the feed tube of the food processor while it is running. You should end up with a mix that appears rather like cake crumbs but that when pressed will easily stick together (if the mixture does not hold together well, add more dates).

4. In a large bowl (or the pan you plan on putting the brownies in) combine the walnut- cacao mix with the chopped almonds. Press into a lined cake pan or mold. Place in freezer until ready to serve (also makes it easier to chop when they are very cold). Store in an airtight container.
