Is it fudge or a brownie?  You taste and decide.

Creamy like fudge, but less dense. Although these don’t taste exactly like traditional butter and sugar-based brownies (totally different ingredients), they are chewy, rich, full of chocolate and a great way to satisfy that sugar craving.


You need:

  • 1 cup nuts (I used ½ cup almonds and ½ cup walnuts)
  • 4 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 cup soft pitted dates (Medjool)
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt



  1. In a food processor, add your nuts and cacao powder. Blitz it till it looks like sand.
  2. Add the chia seeds, cinnamon, salt and dates. Blitz again until it all comes together in a ball.
  3. If too dry, add a date or two more. If too sticky, blitz a couple of nuts and add it in.
  4. Press it on to a parchment paper into a large square about ¼ to ½ inch thick.
  5. Stick it into the refrigerator for a couple of hours till it firms up and then cut it in 1-inch squares.
  6. Store it in an air tight container in the refrigerator to keep it fresh.
