I used tahini and apple sauce instead of coconut oil. so this recipe is great with the nibs & walnuts on top as you can get away without topping. I only had a scant two cups of dates, and did not bother to soak them first, so my resulting “brownie batter” seemed a little dry and not very sweet so added two tablespoons maple syrup which seemed the perfect addition: the dough came together beautifully. (pitted // if dry, soak in warm water for 10 minutes then drain // 2 1/2 cups equal ~15 ounces), Place 1 cup walnuts (as original recipe is written // use 2/3 of the total if altering batch size) and the almonds in.
