Raw Brownie Bites

(Serves 12)

Quick and easy brownie bites that are exclusively sweetened with fruit!

  • 1½ cups raw walnut halves
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (alcohol free, if you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder (optional, but really deepens the chocolate flavor)
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup soft dates, pitted (about 10 Medjool dates)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Additional cocoa powder, for coating (optional)


  1. In a large food processor fitted with an “S” blade, grind the walnuts into a fine meal.
  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients, and process again until a sticky, uniform dough is formed. You may need to adjust the cocoa powder/water ratio to achieve the desired consistency.
  3. Scoop the batter by heaping tablespoons onto a plate or baking sheet lined with parchment paper, to prevent sticking. Roll the balls between your hands, and roll them in cocoa powder, if desired.
  4. Store the balls in the fridge or freezer, and serve them chilled for the most firm texture. Enjoy!
