Dessert Health Pistachios Recipe

Brownies that are guilt free, gluten free, dairy free, free from preserves or anything naughty? It can’t be possible, can it? Ooooh yes, it can! I had to share this recipe with you because it was too good not to, it’s deliciously chocolatey nutty and crunchy. And it gets better…there’s no cooking involved so you don’t have to sit in front of the oven drooling.

9 small brownies


100g Walnuts
70g Borna Pistachios Kernels
8 Pitted Medjool dates (soaked in water for 20mins to soften)
2 tbsp Cacao Powder
1 tbsp Agave syrup
20g Borna Pistachios Kernels (roughly chopped)
Coconut oil for greasing the baking sheet

15g Cacao power
1 tbsp Agave syrup
1 tbsp Water
1 Pitted Medjool date (soaked in water for 20mins to soften)

3 tsp Desiccated coconut
5g Borna Pistachios Kernels (roughly chopped)
5g Walnuts (roughly chopped)


♥ Blend the walnuts and pistachio kernels until they make a flour-like consistency

♥ Add the 2 tbsp cacao powder and 1 tbsp agave blend until fully mixed

♥ Roughly chop the dates, then gradually add them to the mix while blending. You may need to scrape the edges of the blender every now and then as the dates will make the mixture very sticky

♥ Move the mixture to a bowl and add the 20g chopped pistachios. With your hand mix the pistachios evenly into the brownie mix

♥ Line a deep pot or dish with a baking sheet and grease with coconut oil, add the mixture to the dish and squash the mixture down with your fingers so it becomes very compact

♥ Put them in the freezer for 5 mins

♥ Meanwhile, add 15g cacao powder, 2 tbsp agave, 1 tbsp water, 1 date and 2 tsp desiccated coconut into a clean blender and blend until completely smooth. If the mixture becomes too dense add a little more water and blend again

♥ Remove the brownie from the freezer and add the ‘frosting’ to the top by spreading it with a knife

♥ Top with desiccated coconut, chopped pistachio and walnuts and place in the fridge for 20mins to set
