  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. In a food processor*, blend the dates, coconut oil, cocoa powder, and water until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  3. Add the roasted pecans, chocolate, and a pinch of salt. Blend, stopping to scrape down the sides, but let some chunks of pecans and chocolate remain.
  4. Transfer the mixture into a parchment-lined baking dish, and spread evenly. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 10 minutes.
  5. When removed from the oven, top with some more crushed pecans, chopped chocolate, and a sprinkle of sea salt if desired. Gently press these in to secure them.
  6. Let cool for 15 minutes before cutting. These brownies are fudgiest if kept in the fridge. Enjoy!


  • If you don't have a food processor, this step can also be done by mashing the dates with a fork. Then simply chop the roasted pecans and chocolate, and simply combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
  • You can skip the baking and put them straight into the fridge for some chewy no-bake brownies.


  • Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days, or the freezer for up to two months.

If we buy Medjool dates with the stones in, should we remove the stones before putting the dates in the food processor?
Thank you!

Hello R, that's a great question! We've updated the ingredient list to make it a little more clear. We indeed need to remove the pits/stones from the dates to help get a smooth and sticky paste, and also make sure we don't break our food processor 🙂

I made the no-bake version and they came out like dried-fruit bars only more chocolaty. I think making it into balls would be good too!

Lovely ideas, Cris! Thank you for the review 😃

Great recipe! I tried it for the first time and I didn't know what to expect but it was delicious! My family also loves it so I might need to make some more very soon.

As a brownie connoisseur, I can honestly say these are some of the BEST brownies I've had!! I'm a little concerned they might not make it through the weekend 😂

PUL Team - April 8, 2021, 6:48 a.m.

An incredible review, Margaret! You can always make another batch 😉

Laura - March 31, 2021, 12:21 p.m.

Best recipe ever! Loved it so much and will definitely keep it in my repertoire. I used the 2 cups for the dates even though I would normally go with grams... 720 g seemed way more than 2 cups, could that be typo? Thanks so much for this delightful recipe!

PUL Team - April 3, 2021, 1 a.m.

Hello Laura, thanks for the lovely review! Great catch with the grams per cup and apologies for any confusion that may have caused. The grams should be more accurate now 😃

Rachelle - March 24, 2021, 7:58 p.m.

Hi made these and they are so delicious! I can’t believe how incredible they are, I love your recipes.

PUL Team - April 2, 2021, 4:41 a.m.

Hi Rachelle! Thank you so much for your kindness and support 😃

Vera - May 15, 2021, 4:58 p.m.

Can I ask
2 cup dates is how many grams?
Thank you

PUL Team - May 15, 2021, 8:57 p.m.

Hey Vera, thanks for pointing out that this was missing from the recipe and for your patience as we updated it! 2 cups of dates is around 380 grams 🙂
