These go from make to devour in like 5 minutes. How sweet is that?!
I know that I’m ‘alone’ when it comes to my feelings on desserts. I like them few and far between, I’m a salty girl, what can I say? The other day though, it happened that I did want some chocolate and while a smoothie would do, I wanted to make brownies. It had been awhile!
These are rich, very nutritious and will fill that chocolate fix. I had one and I was completely satisfied.
These aren’t low-fat but they are FREE of refined flour and crappy sugars. I’ll trade those nasties for healthy fats any day. As my dessert eating routine goes, I’ve only had one every couple days. Jeremy, on the other hand, can eat 2 in one sitting – like he did on Saturday when I surprised him at the airport. Nothing better than a nutritious chocolate treat when you’ve been traveling since the wee hours of the morning. 🙂
Chocolate Vanilla Cinnamon Raw Vegan Brownies
- 2 cups raw walnuts
- dash salt
- 2 cups pitted medjool dates
- 2 teaspoons Sunfood vanilla bean powder
- 3 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 oz melted extra virgin coconut oil
- 1/4 cup Navitas Naturals raw cacao powder
- Place walnuts and salt in the food processor and process until finely ground. Add dates, vanilla bean, cinnamon, coconut oil, and cacao powder. Process until well mixed and dates are fully ground. The batter will easily stick together when pinched.
- Press into an 8x8 glass pan or Tupperware container until flat and cut into 10-20 pieces. Refrigerate for 1-2 weeks (if they last this long).
Wow yes please! They look fab x x
Thank you!! 🙂
These look so yummy!! I can’t wait to try them….do you have any suggestions for those of us still in the cold unfriendly world of no food processors? I’ve tried with the blender and it is such a pain!
Thank you!!! I do have a suggestion and would LOVE to hear how it goes. It will require you to go rogue, as a pioneer woman. Can you handle the challenge? I think so. I’m thinking if you chop the hell out of the nuts or put them in a bag and bash them with a meat tenderizer you could get them into a meal/powder with some bigger chunks. Then I would soak the pitted dates for about 30min to an hour in water, drain the water and chop them up (you could probably chop them before soaking too). Then combine all the ingredients and use your muscle power to mix it all together. The texture will be a different and they’ll have a ‘rustic’ look but the taste should still be damn good! I don’t necessarily think they’ll be too soft doing it this way but if they do seem that way, maybe let them ‘set’ in the fridge for an hour. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear! xoxoxo p.s. regular baking cocoa could be used too 😉
I will report back! 🙂
