Brawnies (from Chef AJ)

These raw brownies will satisfy your sweet and chocolatey cravings with only natural sugar from dates.



  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 2 cups pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp alcohol-free vanilla extract


  1. In a food processor fitted with the “S” blade, process walnuts into a powder. Do not over process into a nut butter.
  2. Add the cocoa or carob powder and process again.
  3. Add the dates until a ball forms.
  4. Then add the vanilla and briefly process again.
  5. Place in an 8”X8” square pan and freeze until firm.

Chef’s Note: You can use any raw nut or seed (or combination) instead of the walnuts.
