  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted almond butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened nut or soy milk
  • 2 Tbsp. brewed and chilled coffee
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt if you're using salted almond butter, reduce to 1/4 tsp.
  • **Cocoa-date frosting**
  • 8 pitted Medjool dates soaked in warm water for 30 minutes
  • 1 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup warm water


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper and lightly coat with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs and sugar until combined. Whisk in almond butter, milk, and coffee until smooth. Add cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; stir to combine. Pour into prepared baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 24 to 26 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean. Let brownies cool completely before removing from pan.
  • Place dates, coconut oil, cocoa powder, and 1 Tbsp. of the water in a miniature food processor/chopper or blender. Pulse until smooth, adding the additional water in 1 Tbsp. increments until desired consistency is reached. Spread frosting over brownies. Slice into 16 squares.
