When it comes to sweets, it doesn’t get much more iconic than brownies. We’ve created a version that doesn’t require turning on your oven and also happens to be nutritious. And it’s truly delicious thanks to a decadent homemade chocolate ganache. No need to compromise on flavor!


  • In a blender, add ¾ of the nuts, salt, and the cocoa powder and pulse until thoroughly combined. Reserve the other nuts for later.
  • Add dates to blender and continue pulsing until a sticky paste forms. Scrape the sides and bottom with a spatula to ensure all ingredients are fully incorporated.
  • To finish, break the remaining nuts with your hands and add to paste along with chia seeds. Mix with a spoon to combine.
  • Transfer the brownie batter to a parchment paper-lined baking dish and use your hands or a spatula to press it into the edges to form a rectangle.
  • For the ganache: In a bowl, combine protein powder, melted coconut oil, and remaining cocoa powder until you obtain a creamy, glossy texture. Pour evenly over the brownie.
  • Garnish brownies with remaining nuts and chia seeds and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour.
  • Cut, serve, and enjoy!
  • Enjoy!

Our Tip

Not are these brownies truly delicious, but they will also kick your sugar cravings in an instant. If you’re trying to cut calories, just enjoy a smaller piece of this treat. For this recipe, we recommend using a powerful blender that will be able to handle the tough and sticky ingredients you’ll be using.

What does "raw" mean?

Raw is most frequently used to refer to recipes that haven’t been cooked. Someone on a raw food diet will focus on eating raw recipes or ingredients that can be eaten as they are. Chia seeds and this brownie recipe are definitely worth having on hand in these cases!
