Date & Walnut Brownie Bites
Updated: Apr 4
This is a recipe I received during an Ayurvedic cleanse, I've tweaked it to make it my own. How awesome that this dessert is suitable for cleansing! This is a treat that my friends and family ask me to make all the time! It promises to be nourishing and satisfy that sweet tooth.
1 ½ cups of Dates
1 ½ cups of Walnuts
1 cup of Fresh Coconut*
½ cup of Cocao Powder
½ tsp of Cinnamon
Pinch of Salt
*Note: I’ve added fresh coconut to this recipe and it was insanely good, you can also add shredded unsweetened coconut/toasted coconut if fresh isn’t an option. If you're comfortable cracking open a mature coconut and can safely extract the "meat"...go for it! You can also buy fresh coconut chunks at some grocery store, this is definitely an easier option.
Throw all the ingredients into a food processor and blend. Once all the ingredients are thoroughly combined you will place the mixture into a bowl or cookie sheet and begin to roll the deliciousness into tablespoon sized balls. These will stay fresh and last a few day before getting dry.
Tips for Preparing: Make sure the dates aren't too dry, for best results you will want the dates to be moist.
I've put the extras I knew I couldn't eat before they went dry in the freezer. They will stay fresh for a few months if frozen. Technically, if you're following an ayurvedic lifestyle/diet you wouldn't eat left overs or frozen food. However, if getting high quality, healthy food is challenging and you need to plan ahead and prepare ahead in order to have healthy snacks on hand, then freezing these is an awesome option. We do what we have to do!
