Is it already time for a new brownie recipe?
I was lucky to meet the guys from Dattelbaer at the Veggie World in March and since I am totally in love with dates we connected straight away. Dates are a perfect snack for fitness lovers or everybody else with a sweet tooth. They are very high in sugar and calories but also full of vitamin B, C, and potassium. Dates are loaded with fiber and even tryptophan, which supports the melatonin production and can improve sleeping issues.
Dattelbaer provides you with 100% natural dates, free from additives, pesticides, and added sugar. Do not forget to check out their page, if you are looking for good quality dates within Europe. Link ->->->->

But let’s start with this simple raw, vegan brownies recipe.
For about 15 brownies you need:
- 2 1/2 cups dates (640g)
- 1 1/2 cups mixed nuts (370g)
- 150g cocoa powder
- 1 vanilla bean (you can use it all since you are blending it)
- a pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup agave nectar (60g)
- 2tbs melted coconut oil
Blend the dates in your food processor or blender, you might need some water if your blender can not handle it and do not forget to turn the blender off and scratch the dates towards the blades every 20-30 seconds.
Shred nuts, 6 tbs cocoa powder, vanilla, 2tbs water and one pinch of salt separately and add to the blended dates, blend again, until you have a thick paste.
Spread over a pan covered with a baking sheet and press firmly.
Now combine the rest of the cocoa powder, agave nectar, and liquid coconut oil, give it a good stir and spread it over the dough.
Refrigerate for at least two hours, better over night. Cut into squares the next morning.
