The flavor and texture of these no-bake brownies reminded me of a homemade chocolate Larabar.

  • 3-1/2 ounces pitted dates (about 8 - 10, depending on size)
  • 3-1/2 ounces almond meal (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil


  • Place dates in a heat proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Let stand for 5 minutes. (f you are using soft medjool dates you can skip this step.)
  • Place the dates, almond meal, cocoa powder and coconut oil in the bowl of your food processor.
  • Whizz until you have a smooth mixture that clumps together. This will take a few minutes.
  • Dump your mixture into a loaf pan lined with baking paper or foil, and use your hands to smooth out until it's the height you prefer. Don't spread the mixture over the whole base. Only use half or less, unless you want thin brownies.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until set.
  • Cut into 8 even pieces. Store in the refrigerator.
