Chewy. Chocolatey. Sweet. Spicy. These no-bake brownies are the perfect after-dinner treat or pick-me-up snack.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup raw walnuts
  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • ½ teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • ⅓ cup cacao powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 1⅓ cup medjool dates, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cacao nibs (optional)

Preparation

1. Put the nuts in the food processor and run until finely ground.

2. Add the remaining dry ingredients and process until evenly combined.

3. Add the dates and vanilla and run for about 60 to 90 seconds or until the mixture starts sticking together.

4. Press dough into parchment paper and sprinkle with cacao nibs (optional), then cover with another piece of parchment and roll out dough to flatten with a rolling pin until about 1 inch thick.

5. Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut dough into rows and then 1-inch squares. Another option is to shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
