Quick and Easy Chocolate Brownie


Baked Chocolate and Walnut Brownie

Chocolate and Walnut Brownie


  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 18 medjool dates, seeds removed
  • 1/2 cup cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, soft


  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, liquid
  • 6 tablespoons cacao or cocoa powder
  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C or 350°F. Grease and line a square 20cm cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Place the ingredients for the brownie into your processor and blend at high  speed until it is broken down and resembling a sticky crumb. Press the mixture firmly into your prepared tin and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the brownie from the oven and set aside to cool in the tin.
  3. Once the brownie has cooled, place the topping ingredients into a bowl and mix to combine. Pour the topping over the brownie and place the brownie in the fridge to set.

Makes 16 pieces.

notethis is delicious cooked or raw and I suggest trying both versions to see which you prefer. For the raw version omit the baking and jump straight to setting in the fridge or freezer. Once sliced the brownie can be stored and eaten directly from the fridge or freezer.

I just baked this- omg yum! Thank you. Was hesitant about the 6 tbsp of cacao so started with 2 and that was totally rich and decadent enough. Others may want to watch that too. Thank you though. It’s our night special snack!

Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe, this turned to be rich and scrumptious and strikes just the right combination of chewy, crunchiness sweet and salty. I had some fresh blueberries and dark chocolate bits on hand and sprinkled those after I pour the topping on. Just heavenly!

This is just quite simply lovely. Clean, healthy ingredients that make a truly lovely dessert. I made to the spec and added fresh strawberry’s and cream and had an amazing response from my guest who all asked for the recipe. Recommend it completely ❤️

I hate to be the one who asks “Can I substitute. ..” but could I use almonds or cashews? Walnuts make my tongue sore 🙁
Thank you for your lovely recipes!

Donna, I used almonds and it was just fine. Difference, I think, is that the walnuts are softer. Delicious brownie.
