Delicious, Easy-To-Make No Bake Brownies aka “Date Nut Balls”


I just got this new cookbook. It is beautiful.

It is called Superfood Kitchen. By Julie Morris.

And this is the first thing I made.


Bet you can’t eat just one!


1 cup (packed) soft Medjool dates (about 10 or 11), pits removed
1 cup raw walnut pieces
1/2 cup cacao powder
1 Tbsp – 1/c cup cacao nibs (use quantity to taste)


Place walnuts in a food processor and grind for a couple seconds to form a coarse flour. Add pitted dates, cacao powder and salt, processing until a moist, crumb-like dough has formed. Depending on the natural moisture of the dates, you may need to add a touch of water (1 tsp at a time) to get the crumbs to “stick” when pinched together.
Spread the crumbs 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.
Yield: about 24 small squares
