B-B-B-Brownies, Baby!!!

Raw Brownies - vegan and glutenfree:glutenfrei - www.healthyhappysteffi.com

A good guest brings a little present, right? And if the hosts make something so delicious and complex from the Jerusalem-cookbook of Ottolenghi and Tamimi (which I absolutely still have to buy !!), then it must be something suitable! Best something with dates, cocoa and orange. Hmmmm, what could I make?? Just throw something in the blender and see what comes out …

Aaahhh, brownies!! And yet soo tasty and healthy and without sugar! Terrific! That’s it!!

Here is my recipe:


  • 1 cup nuts, crushed / chopped (I had pecans, cashews and almonds)
  • 2 cups dates (best are Medjool dates, which are so nice and juicy, otherwise other dates, soaked about 2 hours in water.)
  • 3 tablespoons cacao
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey, agave syrup, etc.)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • orange zest
  • optional: chocolate coating


  1. First grind the nuts in a blender but make sure they are not too fine.
  2. Pitt the Dates and add to the blender and mix a bit, until it is a sticky mass.
  3. Add cacao, maple syrup and salt and rub the orange zest over it (from now on it smells incredibly delicious!!)
  4. Mix again until everything is a homogeneous, very sticky mass and then smear the mass on a lined baking sheet or baking dish (about 2 cm thick).
  5. Then put it into the freezer for 1-2 hours.
  6. Remove the tray and cut the mass into pieces (it’s really easy now, because it is frozen) and that’s it.
  7. If you like, you can now coat the brownies with chocolate, but they already taste amazing without.
  8. Store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container since they are getting a little gooey when the get warm.

Cheers, Steffi
