  • 1 cup medjool dates, pits removed
  • 1 cup raw walnut pieces
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp - 1 cup Navitas Natural Sweetened Cacao Nibs, or regular raw cacao nibs (use quantity to taste)


  1. Mix:

    Place walnuts in a food processor and grind for a couple seconds to form a coarse flour. While machine is running, add pitted dates, cacao powder and salt, processing until a moist, crumb-like dough has formed.

  2. Form:

    Spread into an 8×8 inch pan, sprinkle with cacao nibs, and press firmly into a solid brownie layer. Cut into bite-size squares and serve. Alternately, press and roll brownie dough into small balls to make brownie bites.

  3. Makes about 2 dozen small squares.
