  • Difficulty: easy

My friend Livia from Livia’s KitchenΒ and I created this recipe together for our demo at Feastival in a few weeks time and I have to say it’s one of the best! It’s so amazingly chocolatey with sweet hints of orange and a wonderfully creamy icing that just melts in your mouth. They’re raw so they’re so easy to make too! The only thing you need to know is that they’re totally addictive and it’s impossible to eat just one!

For the Brownies

300g blanched almonds (230g pulsed into coarse flour) 70g chopped to add in at the end
7 tablespoons raw cacao powder
200g soft medjool dates
75g maple syrup

The zest of 2 medium oranges

himalayan salt

For the Frosting

85g of almond butter
40g of coconut oil
35g of date syrup
2 tablespoons of raw cacao powder
1 orange zest

1/2 a cup of fresh orange juice

For the Topping

The zest ofΒ half an orange

himalayan salt


Pulse the first set of almonds into a coarse flour in the food processor. Add all the other ingredients into the food processor and mix well. Add in the rest of the almonds at the end and pulse until chopped.
Spread the mixture into a brownie tin and then make the frosting. Spread the frosting over the mixture and leave it to set in the fridge for about 2-3 hours. Add the garnish and then cut into brownie squares
