Recipe Ingredients


  • 250g dates, pitted
  • 50g walnut halves
  • 1 tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Recipe Directions

  1. Whizz all the brownie ingredients in a food processor until fine and clumping together. Empty into a bowl, cover and chill for at least 1 hour.
  2. To melt the coconut oil, half-fill a large heatproof bowl with boiling water. Set a smaller heatproof bowl inside it and put in the coconut oil. When the oil is melted, remove the smaller bowl from the water and sift in the cocoa powder. Add maple syrup and stir to combine. Line a large baking sheet with baking paper.
  3. Shape the brownie mixture into round, grape-sized balls. Working a few at a time, drop balls into the chocolate coating and lift out using a teaspoon. Arrange on the prepared sheet to firm up. (As the brownie mix is chilled, this will happen quickly.) If you like, give the balls a second coat. (If the chocolate coating gets too thick, rewarm it in the bowl of hot water.) Chill.
  4. Serve the balls straight from the fridge or allow to soften at room temperature for 15 minutes first.
