  • 6 pitted medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup cashew butter (or other nut butter)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup collagen peptides
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon black cocoa powder*
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 12 tablespoons organic rainbow sprinkles


  1. Line a 9×5 bread pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Place pitted dates in a food processor and pulse to break the dates into small pieces. Then add the cashew butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt. Blend once more until well combined. Then add the collagen peptides and cocoa powder, and blend until mixture combines and becomes a crumbly texture.
  3. Add brownie mixture to a bowl then add the chocolate chips and sprinkles, and fold to combined.
  4. Press the mixture into the lined bread pan, using the bottom of a glass to press the top of the mixture into a flat surface. Place in the fridge to set for an hour before cutting the brownies into 12-16 bars before serving!


*Black cocoa powder is not a must, it just gives the brownies that rich, dark color. If you do not have black cocoa powder, you can simply add 3 tablespoons of normal unsweetened cocoa powder instead of 2
