(makes 10-12)

  • 1 ½ cups of any nuts (I used a mix of pecans and hazelnuts)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates
  • 6-8 tbsp cacao/cocoa powder (depending on how chocolaty you like it!)
  • Pinch Himalayan salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate soda
  • 5 squares 85%+ dark chocolate


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with grease proof paper. 
  2. Place all the ingredients (except the chocolate) in a food processor and process until smooth.
  3. Add the squares of chocolate and pulse until they are broken down into small pieces.
  4. Using a teaspoon, spoon the mixture into even cookie shapes onto the baking tray.
  5. Place in the oven for about 15-20min.
  6. Leave to cool on a cooling rack for about 15min (if you can last that long!!)
  7. Enjoy ☺
