Guilt-Free Brownies!

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetThese brownies were super easy to make and absolutely delicious, plus they’re pretty much guilt free as there is no added sugar and they’re very high in fiber.

  • 2 cups (about 200g) dates, pitted
  • 1¼ cup walnuts, ground finely
  • 1 cup almonds, ground finely
  • ¼ cup pistachios, shelled and ground finely
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup cacao nibs
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoons Coffee Grinded
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • dash of cinnamon
  1. In a food processor, ground the walnuts, almonds, and pistachios until fine.
  2. Next add in the pitted dates, a few at a time helps, repeat pulsing and blending until the mixture has come together. Add in cocoa powder. Pulse to combine again.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, pour this mixture, add in melted coconut oil, cacao nibs, and remaining ingredients.
  4. Using a spatula or your hands, stir.
  5. In a lined (with parchment paper) 8×8 square pan, spread the brownie mixture in and start to evenly press down until you form a brownie layer.
  6. Chill for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  7. Cut into squares.
  8. Store in the freezer for a later snack or serve immediately!Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetProcessed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
