A friend introduced me to these & I couldn’t believe how rich they are – & how much they taste just like baked brownies. I love that they are plant based, super quick & only require a few ingredients.
1.5 cup walnuts
1 cup dates (soft, or soaked in hot water for 15 minutes to soften & drained)
3 Tablespoons cocoa powder (or cocoa nibs – blended to powder in a vitamix)
1/2 – 1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
A dash (or two) cinnamon
A dash (or two) cayenne pepper
(this brings out the flavor & adds depth & richness)
Blend ingredients together in blender (such as a vitamix) until it forms a mass.
Add water by the teaspoon if needed to slightly moisten.
Scoop out of blender.
Shape into brownie sized bites
