Raw Orange Chocolate Salted Brownies



  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1/2c cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp maca powder
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp salt
  • coarse sea salt for garnish


  1. In a food processor, add almonds and pulse for a few seconds until almonds turn turn into a course flour. While the food processor is running, add the remaining ingredients. The mixture should be crumb-like but but held together when pressed.
  2. Pour the mixture into a 8×8 pan and press down firmly with your hands. Cut into small squares or alternatively, roll into small balls for brownie bites. Garnish with course sea salt.


Variation: For chipoltle chocolate brownies, substitute 1 tsp orange zest for 1/2 tsp chipoltle powder and skip sea salt garnish.
