B-RAW-NIES


No bake brownies with a delicious ooey gooey frosting.

Makes 8

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 virgin coconut oil 
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

FROSTING
1/2 cup virgin coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons cacao powder

Put the walnuts in a food processor and blend until in smaller pieces. Add the almond meal, dates, 6 tablespoons of cacao, 1 teaspoon coconut oil, vanilla, and salt. Blend until crumbly. The mixture should stick together between your fingers a little. Do not overmix.

When ready, put the mixture into an 8x8 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.

Put in the freezer for 25 minutes to set before removing and cutting into small squares. Best stored in the refrigerator.
