You only need 6 ingredients for these simple, raw vegan brownies. They’re healthy enough to eat anytime of day for a snack but decadent enough to enjoy as a dessert too!



  1. Add the almonds to a food processor and mix until mostly broken down. It should resemble a coarse, grainy flour.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until it forms a thick, sticky dough you can press together between your fingers. The dough should come together into one big ball as it processes. If it seems too crumbly, add 1 tsp warm water and blend again, repeat as needed until the dough is sticky.
  3. Line a 7-8 inch square baking pan with parchment paper or saran and then firmly press the dough into the pan.
  4. Set in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Cut into 8 bars or 12 squares and enjoy!


Dates: Dates must be soft and moist. If your dates are overly dry, soak them for 10-15 minutes in warm water and drain well before using.

Orange Zest: To make the orange zest, simply grate the peel of an orange until you have about 1 tbsp. If you don’t like the orange, you can go ahead and leave it out.

Storing: In a fridge in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks. In the freezer in a sealed container or freezer safe bag for up to 3 months.
