My sister-in-law sent me this recipe and they are quite nice!

2 cups whole walnuts (200 g package of shelled chopped walnuts is what I use because that’s what the store carries – I don’t think it matters either way)
Approximately 2 cups of pitted medjool dates – I take the pits out myself (or 700 – 800g of pitted baking dates will do in a pinch but the medjools are much better and easier to work with)
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 cup raw unsalted almonds, roughly chopped (optional)
¼ tsp. sea salt (I did not add salt when I made them)
1. Place walnuts in food processor and blend on high until the nuts are finely ground.
2. Add the cocoa (and salt). Pulse to combine.
3. Pit the dates and add a couple at a time through the feed tube of the food processor while it is running. What you should end up with is a mix that appears rather like cake crumbs, but that when pressed, will easily stick together (if the mixture does not hold together well, add more dates).
4. In a large bowl (or the pan you plan on putting the brownies in), combine the walnut-cocoa-date mix with the chopped almonds. Press into a glass cake pan (8×8 or 9×9 square ). Place in freezer or fridge until ready to serve (it is also easier to cut these when they are very cold). Store in an airtight container.
