I am speechless! I can’t put into words how fantastic these taste and how i’m never baking chocolate brownies again!!
This is the simplest, quickest, easiest and BESTEST recipe!
Sorry I’m slightly over excited at the moment and had to run to my laptop so I can capture how I feel about these brownies.
THEY TASTE GREAT!
you have to try it for yourself to believe it.
This is the link to Sarah Brittons ‘My New Roots’ as she provided me with this recipe that she claims with change your life – and it really does. Please have a look at her amazing website and try some of her recipes.
Sarah also provides an amazing run down on the nutritious value of all of these ingredients and why you should splash the cash on the expensive ingredients as you get what you are paying for. I did buy the £2.99 medjool dates but combined them with some regular dates that i’d soaked overnight… but they really provided the sweetness and consistency you need in these brownies.
The Raw Brownie
2 cups whole walnuts
2 ½ cups Medjool dates, pitted
1 cup raw cacao
1 cup raw unsalted almonds, roughly chopped
¼ tsp. sea salt
1. Place walnuts in food processor and blend on high until the nuts are finely ground.
2. Add the cacao and salt. Pulse to combine.
3. Add the dates one at a time through the feed tube of the food processor while it is running. What you should end up with is a mix that appears rather like cake crumbs, but that when pressed, will easily stick together (if the mixture does not hold together well, add more dates).
4. In a large bowl (or the pan you plan on putting the brownies in), combine the walnut-cacao mix with the chopped almonds. Press into a lined cake pan or mold. Place in freezer or fridge until ready to serve (it is also easier to cut these when they are very cold). Store in an airtight container.
Happy happy chomping today!
