Step 1

In a food processor, pulse the almonds until they are chopped, but not a powder. Set aside.

Step 2

Pulse the walnuts in the food processor until finely ground.

Step 3

Add the coconut flakes, the cacao, carob (if you're using it) and keep blending.

Step 4

Add the dates one by one with the processor still on.

Step 5

Add the maple syrup and coconut oil.

Step 6

Add the almonds and pulse a couple of times just to incorporate them.

Step 7

Line an 8x8 baking tray with parchment paper, and press the brownie batter into the tray.

Step 8

Freeze for 30 minutes.

It’s best to store the brownies in the freezer until about 30 min before eating them, and then just transfer them to the fridge. Otherwise, they tend to melt a bit. When you go to cut the brownies, it helps if they’re not rock hard frozen...let them melt a tiny bit. You may need to add a touch of coconut oil, depending on the texture. You want them to be crumbly, but you could easily press them into a ball or a brownie shape and they’d stick together.
