Holy chocolate... These raw brownies are good. Made with just a few simple ingredients, but oh so decadent. Raw, Vegan and Gluten-free so that you can indulge in REAL FOOD!

RECIPE:

  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 1 cup raw pecans

  • 3 tablespoons melted/cooled unrefined coconut oil

  • 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 cup chopped dark chocolate (I use 100% cacao by Eating Evolved

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Place 1 cup walnuts and 1 cup pecans in food processor and pulse until ground
  2. Add the cacao powder, dates, and sea salt and pulse until a dough consistency is achieved. You may want to add the dates in slowly, instead of all at once. 
  3. Add the brownie mixture to a small parchment lined 8x8 dish. Then press down with hands until the dough is flat
  4. Place in freezer or fridge to chill for 10-15 minutes before cutting
  5. While the brownies are chilling, work on the frosting.
  6. Add coconut milk to a saucepan and heat until warm. 
  7. Add chocolate, salt, maple syrup and melted coconut oil and mix.
  8. Set in fridge for 10 minutes to thicken.
  9. Frost brownies and then top with additional nuts, bee pollen, cacao nibs (up to you!)
  10. Slice into even squares, and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week
