Much healthier than their classic version, these chocolate chip blondies are vegan, nutty, naturally sweetened with dates and your go-to recipe when you need a treat in a hurry.



  • 14 pitted dates
  • 1 cup (240 ml) warm water
  • 1/4 cup (25g) tahini
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (120g) whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup (65g) white flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) coconut oil, melted
  • 2 Tablepsoons water
  • 1/2 cup (65g) walnuts
  • 1 cup (175g) vegan chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375F (190 C).
  2. In a food processor, place pitted dates with the cup of water and mix until smooth.
  3. Pour the date mixture into a bowl. Add the tahini, vanilla extract, and stir well.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir well.
  5. Add the coconut oil, stir, then add two tablespoons of hot water and stir until combined.
  6. Let cool for about 5 to 10 minutes, then fold in the walnuts and chocolate chips (you don’t want to add the chocolate chips too early or they will melt right away).
  7. Pour the batter onto a 9×9 inch (23 cm) square pan and bake for about 25 minutes, until set. Let cool, and enjoy!
