It’s chocolatey, it’s guilt-free, it’s sugar-free, it’s gluten-free, it’s a BROWNIE!
I’m on an all raw-food diet this week and we’re in the the homestretch to completing the week and can’t give up now! To be totally honest, I had a serious cake craving last night and wanted to throw in the towel. Instead came up with this gooey chocolatey goodness that I can’t even believe myself to call a “brownie.”
This is really easy and super quick to whip up in your Ahnest kitchen and I couldn’t wait to share with you.
2 cups dates, soaked in warm water for about 3 minutes
1 cup raw cacao powder
1 cup walnuts
1 cup almonds
2 tbsp flax seed meal
3 tbsp water
dash sea salt
unsweetened coconut flakes
Finely grind almonds and walnuts in a food processor. Add cocoa powder, sea salt, flax meal and pulse until well combined. Add dates 1 cup at a time, processing after each batch.
The mixture should become a bit thick. Add water to loosen up the mixture. Then add the remainder 1 cup of dates and pulse again. Scrape down the sides in between to make sure all ingredients are well incorporated.
Firmly press down the batter onto a parchment paper lined loaf dish.
This step is optional: Sprinkle coconut flakes and goji berries on top.
Cover and refrigerate for about 2 hours (overnight for better hold).
One bite into this fudgey goodness, will have you screaming for more… I PROMISE!
