Ingredients

Scale

Brownies

  • 2 cups medjool dates, tightly packed
  • 1 and 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Strawberry Cheesecake

  • 2 cups raw cashews, soaked
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup strawberries, diced
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Strawberry Topping

  • 1 cup strawberries, diced

Instructions

  1. Line an 8×8-inch baking dish with parchment paper. Leave some of the paper hanging over the edges.
  2. In a bowl, add the raw cashews. Pour hot water over the cashews. Soak for 30 minutes, then drain the water.
  3. In a food processor, add pitted medjool dates, almond flour, walnuts, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and salt. Blend until a crumbled, sticky dough is formed. You should be able to pinch the dough together with your fingers. If it is not sticky enough, add 1 tbsp maple syrup (or a few extra medjool dates) and blend again.
  4. Transfer brownie dough to the baking dish. Using clean hands or a silicone spatula, press the dough across the bottom of the pan. Set aside.
  5. In a food processor or blender, add soaked cashews, coconut milk, strawberries, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  6. Pour strawberry cheesecake over the brownie dough. Add the diced strawberries on top.
  7. Chill brownies in the freezer for 4 hours (or overnight). Remove from the freezer and let thaw for 30 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!

Notes

  • How to store: Store the brownies inside a sealed container in the freezer. Let thaw before enjoying. They will keep for up to 3 months.
