2-Layer No Bake Peanut Butter Brownie Bars

1 cup walnuts, raw
12 cup almonds, raw
1 cup medjool dates, pitted
14 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (non-dairy for vegan) or 14 cup dark chocolate chips (non-dairy for vegan)
12 cup tbsps cocoa powder (unsweetened) or 12 cup raw cacao powder
1 tablespoon cocoa powder (unsweetened) or 1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
1 pinch sea salt
12 cup pitted dates
12 cup almonds, raw
1 cup dry roasted salted peanut (if unsalted, add salt to taste)
12 cup natural salted peanut butter (if unsalted, add salt to taste)


To make the brownie layer, pulse dates in the food processor until small bits remain. Remove from processor and set aside in a small bowl. Add walnuts, almonds, chocolate chips and cocoa powder in the processor and pulse until well combined. Then, while the processor is running, drop small bits of the dates in until a dough is formed. It should begin to ball up at some point. If it remains too dry, add a couple more whole (pitted) dates until a dough is achieved. Press into an 8x8 pan (or one of similar size) lined with parchment or plastic wrap. This makes it easier to lift out and cut. Press until flat using your hands or a spatula. Pop in the freezer. To make peanut butter layer, process dates until small bits remain. Remove and set aside in a bowl. Then add raw almonds and peanuts and pulse until small bits remain. Add back in peanut butter and the dates and process until well combined. Press on top of brownie layer until smooth. Using plastic wrap or parchment can help get it completely flat. Freeze for at least 15 minutes before removing from pan and cutting. Cut into about 20 squares (Bite size squares). Store in an airtight container to keep fresh. I keep mine in the freezer so they stay fresh for weeks.
