Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 2 hours wait time
Total time: 2 hours, 15 minutes


Serves: 1 – many


2 ½ cups loosely packed pitted dates
1 ½ cups walnuts
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons LouAna® Avocado Oil


Combine dates, walnuts, 6 tablespoons cacao powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla, 2 teaspoons water and salt in a food processor. Process until completely smooth.

Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking dish, or line dish with parchment or waxed paper. Transfer dough to dish. Press dough very firmly into dish with your hands until dough is evenly distributed. In a medium mixing bowl, combine remaining 1/4 cup cacao powder, remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, maple syrup and LouAna Avocado Oil. Stir until mixture forms a paste (this is the frosting). Spread paste evenly over dough in baking dish.
Refrigerate brownies for at least 2 hours to set, then cut into squares. Refrigerate any leftovers in a covered container for up to 2 weeks, or freeze for up to 2 months.

    Hi Nicole, absolutely, just make sure it’s in liquid form. We recommend our LouAna Liquid Coconut Oil!

    This looks amazing! Could you use coconut oil instead of avocado oil?
