No bake “b-raw-nies” – aka raw brownies with a delicious ooey gooey frosting. Who says eating healthfully means you don’t indulge like a mofo? Make these raw brownies and feel the happy spirits enter your bloodstream!
Sweetness – 2/3
Difficulty – 2/3
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup almond meal
2 cups dried, pitted dates
6 tablespoons organic cacao powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons organic cacao powder
Put the walnuts in a food processor and blend until in smaller pieces. Add the almond meal, dates, 6 tablespoons of cacao, vanilla, and salt. Blend until crumbly. The mixture should stick together between your fingers a little. Don’t overmix, as it will release the oils from the nuts. You can add a few drops of water if it isn’t sticking together at all.
When ready, put the mixture into an 8×8 brownie pan. Use a spatula to press it in and smooth it out evenly.
For the frosting, add the coconut oil, maple syrup and 2 tablespoons cacao powder to a bowl. Whisk with a fork until it is mixed. Pour the chocolate over the brownie, again using a spatula to even it out. Refrigerate for an hour before serving, or put in the freezer until set.
