Tips for making this recipe perfectly

  • Use Medjool dates for the base, which are different than regular dates. Medjool dates are larger, stickier and have a sweet caramel flavour. They will help bind the brownies together. If you’re curious, read more about Medjool dates here.
  • If your dates feel a bit dry, soak them in hot water for 5 minutes, drain and then proceed with the recipe.
  • Use unsweetened shredded coconut. Sweetened shredded coconut is loaded with extra sugar, which is not needed for this recipe.
  • Go for a high-quality 70% dark chocolate for the topping.
