Directions
  1. If you have a food processor, place all ingredients into it and blend until a sticky dough forms.
  2. If not, add the walnuts to a blender and process until they form a flour.
  3. Blend the dates the same way until they are broken into small pieces.
  4. Add the walnut flour, date pieces and all other ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix together with your hands until a dough forms.
  5. Scoop the dough into square or rectangular plastic tupperware (about 10-15cm wide), press it down flat with your fingers and score into small squares or rectangles with a flat knife.
  6. Leave in the freezer for 1-2 hrs to set (if you can wait that long!), pry the square brownies out of the container using the flat knife, and eat. Store any leftovers in the freezer.
