Cacao powder delivers just the right amount of natural sweetness while adding that ooey gooey, creamy, fudgey, rich brownie taste everyone craves. Oh yeah, and cacao powder is high in vitamins which helps our bodies fight disease and build immunity. YEAH! That means you get a dessert your taste buds and body will LOVE. DOUBLE YEAH!!! How’s that for healthy baking?

To give them some seasonal flare, I added ginger. Not only a comforting autumn spice that has an incredible tangy taste, but also known for reducing inflammation in the body.

Okay, but nerdy stuff aside. These Ginger Cacao Brownies are seriously addictive. They’re truly a chocolate lover’s dream! The perfect chocolate treat for anyone, anytime that you can feel good about eating.

Naturally sweetened with dates and graze cacao powder, you would never know these decadent and rich brownies were a healthy treat. I love graze for their real food snacks that have no high fructose corn syrup, GMO ingredients, artificial flavourings, preservatives or colours.



  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 2 tsp peanut butter
  • 13 cup melted coconut oil
  • 12 cup ground almonds
  • 34 cup cacao powder
  • 12 tsp baking powder
  • 12 ground ginger
  • 14 tsp sea salt


Place dates in a bowl filled with water, soak 1 hours, rinse and drain.

Preheat oven to 190C and prepare a square baking dish by greasing with coconut oil or lining with parchment paper.

Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor. Process on high one minute then scrape down side and process on high another minute or two until all ingredients are broken down and the batter is creamy.

Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish, smoothing into an even layer.

Bake for 18 minutes or until a toothpick can be inserted and removed clean.

Cool brownies in the pan 1 hour before slicing into 12 bars.

Dust the top of the brownies with extra ginger as desired.
