These brownies are a dream. Crunchy base coupled with perfectly creamy icing makes these brownies a winner!

To make a batch of 20 brownies you’ll need:

1 cup of roasted blanched hazelnuts

1, 1/2 cups of dates (soaked in hot water for 5 mins and drained)

5 tbsp raw cocoa powder

Pinch of salt


3 ripe bananas

1/2 cup of dates

3 tbsp raw cocoa powder

1 tbsp honey

To make the brownie base simply start off by pulsing hazelnuts in the food processor until they have crumbled. Next add the rest of the base ingredients to the food processor and mix until a sticky dough forms. Fill the cake tin with the dough and set aside.

Move on to making the icing. Simply add all the icing ingredients to the food processor and mix until smooth. Spread the icing onto the brownie base and garnish with some hand-chopped hazelnuts. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days.
