Servings 16 brownies


  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 2 cups pitted dates roughly chopped, preferably very moist Medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp ground flax seed
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup non-dairy semi-sweet chocolate chips optional


  • In a food processor blend all of the ingredients, except the chocolate chips, until well combined and sticky.
  • If the mixture does not come together into one mass, add maple syrup, agave or brown rice syrup, 2 teaspoons at a time and process until incorporated. Repeat until mass is formed.
  • Add the chocolate chips and pulse a few times until the chips become somewhat incorporated. Some pieces will remain whole and on the surface of the mixture.
  • Press the mixture into an 8x8 baking dish. Use the back of a spoon or a pastry roller to smooth out and even.
  • Freeze for about an hour until firm. Remove from freezer and cut into 16 even pieces.
