Raw Chocolate Brownies

By: Tracey Monk

High in fibre and antioxidants, dates make up the base to these easy raw chocolate brownies, adding not only natural sweetness but an extra nutritious kick.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes setting in freezer
Servings: 20 pieces


1½ cups pitted medjool dates

1½ cups LSA mix

1 cup raw cacao powder

¼ cup natural almond or peanut butter

1 tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp sea salt

100g dark plant-based chocolate, melted


  1. Line base and sides of a 20cm square baking pan with baking paper. 
  2. Place dates, LSA, cacao, almond butter, vanilla and sea salt in a food processor and blend. Pause processing and scrape the side down regularly, until mixture is smooth.
  3. Spoon mixture evenly into prepared pan, using the back of a spoon to smooth over the top. Pour over chocolate and smooth with the back of a spoon.
  4. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm. 
  5. To serve, cut brownie into 20 squares, to serve.


LSA mix is a combination of ground linseed, sunflower seeds and almonds. You can find it in supermarkets and natural health food stores. You can also swap LSA for a nut meal such as almond or hazelnut. 

Add toasted shredded coconut, chopped toasted walnuts, dried cranberries or ground cinnamon for a flavour twist.
