When it comes to making brownies, seldom do people make them from scratch. You grab a box “fudgy” or “gooey” brownie mix from the store and follow the instructions on how to make them. This is the “normal” way to make brownies because making them from scratch takes too much time and effort. Is that statement true, though? Last we checked, there are many ways to make brownies. In fact, you don’t even need an oven, flour, or dairy products to make this recipe!

To make the “batter” for this recipe, all you need to do is blend up the ingredients in a food processor. The food processor is an essential kitchen tool for a recipe such as this. This recipe calls for dates and nuts, so you need to blend them into a paste with the other ingredients. You don’t want big chunks of dates or walnuts, which is what could happen if you used a blender. Not to mention, the lack of liquid makes it hard to blend all of the ingredients in a blender. A food processor is a much better tool for the job. Anyways, that’s our food processor pitch!

After you blend the ingredients, you want to spread the mixture into an 8-inch by 8-inch pan lined with parchment paper. If you don’t put parchment paper down, cleaning the pan will be very difficult, and so will getting the brownies out of the pan. Make your life as easy as possible!

Raw Hemp Seed Brownies
  • Prep Time:15m
  • Total Time:15m


  • 1 c raw walnuts
  • 2 c dates, pitted
  • 1 c raw hemp seeds
  • 1/3 c raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. water


  1. Add the walnuts to the food processor and blend until you achieve a grainy consistency.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until a sticky dough forms. You will need to stop blending, scrape down the sides, and continue blending to fully incorporate the ingredients. You should be able to form a ball with the dough easily with your hands.
  3. Line an 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper, ensuring the paper sticks out over the edges of the pan. This will make it easier to lift the finished brownies out of the pan.
  4. Press the brownie batter into the pan, taking time to work it into every corner. Once you do this, place the pan in the freezer for about one to two hours, or until the brownies are firm.
  5. Remove the brownies from the freezer, and then remove them from the pan by lifting the edges of the parchment paper. Slice the square into 16 brownies and then serve. Store the remaining brownies in an airtight container in the freezer.
