“This is an updated, more decadent version of my #412285. I pulled out my own recipe to make these, and looked at the ingredients and said, what no butter? I also wanted to try grinding the coconut and I had pecans, not almonds on hand. The result was so good, I had to post a new recipe! A grinder/chopper and food processor are nearly essential for this recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C / 350°F.
  2. Place dates and water in a saucepan and leave them to gently warm until the dates are soft and some water is absorbed.
  3. Finely grind or chop the coconut. (I used organic desiccated coconut, not sweetened.) Chop the nuts, as desired.
  4. If using a food processor, add butter to the warm dates and then process until relatively smooth. If not, press the dates through a sieve and add the butter to the date sauce.
  5. Add eggs, coconut, cocoa powder, and pecans to the date and butter mixture and combine well.
  6. Smooth in a small baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.
