No matter how many hundreds of times I make these I still can’t quite believe how they turn out and how easy they are – just four ingredients in a food processor. 5-minute brownies. Yet they still taste identical to normal brownies with the same perfectly squishy, melt-in-your-mouth texture.

Prep time: 5 minutes plus 3 hours chilling time


10-15 brownies


  • 2 cups medjool dates (they’re the squishier, stickier, tastier kind of dates)
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 2-3 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (optional and can be replaced with any other liquid sweetener)


  1. Simply blend the pecans in a food processor until they form a crumbly mixture, then add the dates and blend again before adding the cacao and maple syrup.
  2. Place the mixture into a baking tray and either refrigerate for three to four hours or freeze for one hour to allow them to set.
  3. Keep them in the fridge for freshness.
