I’ve tried many brownie type cakes (which is what I would call this one) ... this one is by far the best - the easiest - the quickest - and probably the most nutritious since it is raw smile I would say this is my favorite chocolate/brownie dessert right now!

Hi Sarah,

Absolutely, any nut—almonds, pecans, cashews, or macadamias for example. With almonds, you’ll need a few more dates for it to stick together.
