January 31, 2020

You've been taking good care of yourself by eating, sleeping and moving well, so don't forget to treat yourself with some delicious and decadent treats! Bonus - no one will know they are healthier than the traditional alternative.
  • 2½ cups loosely packed pitted dates

  • 1 1/2 cups walnuts

  • 6 tbsp cacao or cocoa powder

  • 1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 2 tsp water

  • 1/4 + 1/8 tsp salt

  • 1/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder

  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup (or raw agave)

  • 2 tbsp vegetable or melted coconut oil

  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


Combine the dates, walnuts, 6 tbsp cocoa, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, water, and salt in a food processor.Process until completely smooth, scraping down as needed – It may seem dry at first, but don’t add any extra water.  Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan, or line the pan with parchment or wax paper. Transfer dough to pan and press very firmly until dough is evenly distributed in the pan. In a medium mixing bowl, combine remaining cocoa and vanilla extract with the maple syrup and oil. Stir until mixture forms a paste (this is the frosting). Spread evenly over dough in the baking pan. Refrigerate brownies for at least 2 hours, to set. Leftovers can stay covered at room temperature for a day, or up to 2 weeks in the fridge, or 1-2 months in the freezer.
