Brownie layer

Chocolate Ganache Frosting


  • Grease an 8x8 baking pan with coconut oil. Line with parchment paper.
  • Place dates, hemp seeds, walnuts, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, and water into bowl of a food processor. Process until smooth, stopping occasionally to wipe down sides.
  • Transfer mixture to prepared pan. Press down into pan in an even layer using a piece of parchment. The "batter" will be sticky.
  • In a small bowl, combine chocolate ganache frosting ingredients. Whisk until smooth.
  • Spread frosting over brownie layer. Place baking pan in freezer for at least two hours until set.
  • Remove brownies from pan using parchment flaps and cut into small squares on a cutting board. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


Inspired by the Unbakery and Juicery's raw hemp brownies. Roughly adapted from my Chocolate Cherry Almond Energy Balls.
