Brownies Base:

Raw Chocolate Sauce: 



  1. Blend/ process medjool dates with water.
  2. Add in nuts and cacao powder, and blend everything together. For smooth/fudgy brownies, blend until there are no chunks. Otherwise, blend for too long to keep it chunky.
  3. Pour into a large bowl and and add in the rest of the ingredients—mix thoroughly. Using your hands is the most efficient way to do this.
  4. Pour mixture into a baking dish, pat down with hands, and freeze for about 20 minutes. Make sauce while waiting.

Chocolate Sauce

  1. Warm up all of the ingredients in a pan for about 2 minutes. You can add more ingredients as you go along—just keep tasting the chocolate sauce until you achieve the perfect taste and consistency.
  2. Let the sauce cool and pour over the brownies. Freeze again for another 20 minutes.
  3. Cut into brownie pieces, and keep the brownies in the fridge for a healthy dessert!
