Serving Size: 15 Brownie Bites


  • 1/2 Cup Raw Walnuts
  • 1/2 Cup Raw Cashews
  • 4 Tbsp Cacao Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Maca Powder
  • 1 Cup Soft Medjool Dates

  1. In a food processor, blend your walnuts, cashews, cacao powder, maca powder, and salt until you get a fine crumble.
  2. Add in your Medjool dates and blend until it all comes together to form a dough-like consistency. If your dates are dried out, soak them in hot water for 30-60 minutes.
  3. Scoop out a bit over 1 Tbsp of your dough and form them into balls. Place them onto a tray lined with parchment paper. Transfer to the fridge for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove your Brownie Bites and drizzle over some melted vegan chocolate over. Transfer back to the fridge for 10 minutes until the chocolate has set. Enjoy!
