Chocolate lover?  This recipe will blow your mind.  With only 7 ingredients and less than 5 minutes of prep time, my raw brownies are the ideal snack to keep in the fridge for an energy boost before yoga or a workout.  They are packed with super foods including cacao, chia seeds & cacao nibs and complemented by Sunwarrior protein powder, making them delicious and nutritious.

**Makes 18 Brownies

***This recipe is vegan and gluten-free


21/2 Cups Medjool Dates (Pitted, soaked in warm water for 5 mins)

2 Cups Walnuts (I used sprouted and dried walnuts, but regular will do fine here)

3 Tbsp Sunwarrior Protein Powder (optional)

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cacao

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Cacao Nibs (optional, but highly recommended)

1 Cup Raw Almonds (chopped, I soak mine overnight but you don’t have to)

30g Chia Seeds (optional)

1/4 Tsp Himalayan Crystal Salt


1. In a food processor, blend walnuts into a fine ground.

2. Add cacao powder and salt and pulse to combine, then add dates individually until the mixture becomes ‘crumby.’

3. In a square pan, press the walnut/cacao mixture down firmly pressing in the almonds, chia seeds and cacao nibs into the mixture.

4. Freeze for at least 2 hours and then slice into eighteen squares.

*Note, I can’t be held responsible for your addiction to this recipe
