Adventure Brownie Bars

Recipe by Arianne JonesCuisine: Dairy Free, Gluten Free, No Refined Sugar, Vegan



I like these bars even better after a night in the fridge – as they turn more fudgey with hard chunks of chocolate.

If eating the brownies right away they will have a cake-ier consistency, whereas after cooling in the fridge overnight – they turn into fudgey bars. Store in a covered container in the fridge for a week or the freezer for longer. 


  • 2 cups tightly packed dates, pitted *

  • ¼  cup warm water

  • ½  cup natural, peanut butter (unsalted and unsweetened)**

  • 2 Tablespoons  melted coconut oil

  • ⅓  cup cacao powder

  • Pinch salt 

  • 1 teaspoon  7 mushroom powder blend (optional)

  • ⅓  cup dairy-free chocolate chips

  • ½  cup roughly chopped raw walnuts 

  • ¼  cup hemp seeds 

  • 2 Tablespoons of dairy free chocolate chips (optional)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 ºF (175ºC) and line a standard loaf pan or 8×8 pan with parchment paper and set aside. 8×8 pan will yield shorter yet larger bars, while the loaf pan brownie bars will be taller.
  • Add dates*, water, peanut butter and melted coconut oil to a food processor and blend for a few minutes until a sticky date paste forms. Scrape down the side periodically.

    *If your dates are firm, soak them for 10 minutes in boiling water to soften. Drain and use.
  • Add cacao powder, optional mushroom powder and salt and blend until incorporated.
  • Add hemp seeds, walnuts, and chocolate chips and pulse until just incorporated, still leaving some larger chunks for crunch. 
  • Transfer the batter to your lined pan and press down to smooth out for a flat, even surface.
  • Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips along the top and lightly press them into the batter.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes and let cool completely
