To make a batch you’ll need:
1 cup of walnuts
1 cup of almonds
5tbsp raw cocoa powder
7 dates, soaked in warm water & drained
5tbsp date syrup (or any other sweetener)
1tbsp coconut butter
2tsp almond butter
10 dates soaked in warm water & drained
1, 1/2 tbs chia seeds
Cocoa powder & pistachio nuts – for dusting & garnishing at the end
Blend walnuts & almonds in a blender until the nuts are an almost even consistency. Add cocoa powder, dates, date syrup and mix thoroughly until the mixture forms a dough-like consistency. I used my hands to do this.
Press the mixture firmly into a shallow baking tray and leave to refridgerate for 10 minutes.
In the mean time, mix all icing ingredients together and pour over the brownie dough. Dust with some cocoa powder & garnish with pistachio nuts. Voila! It will be best enjoyed when kept in the fridge.
