RAW VEGAN BROWNIES

Raw Vegan Brownies

1 1/2 cups walnuts (soaked overnight)

10 dates (remove pits)

3/4 cup raw cacao powder (more or less depending on how rich a flavor you would like)

dash of salt

1 tsp. vanilla extract (use organic)

Optional: Crushed cacao nibs and shredded coconut

  • DIRECTIONS:

Rinse walnuts and whizz in food processor. Add dates and whizz some more. Add a bit of water to the mix, it will be quite sticky. Add cocoa, salt and vanilla and more water if necessary.

Should be a little stiffer than regular brownie like consistency.

Spread in 8×8 pan and put in fridge to set.

I sprinkled some crushed cacao nibs on the bottom of the pan before spreading the mix and on the top for added richness and coconut shreds for decoration. Serve straight from the fridge and impress your non-vegan friends!

Thank you Crystal Lawrence Cardoso of VeganFamilia for this recipe.

Buying Raw Cacao:

When looking to buy raw cacao make sure that it is certified as Organic Raw Cacao, only then it is an excellent source of antioxidants. If it is not certified Organic and Raw then you are consuming a whole lot of chemicals from irradiation and spraying of chemicals which are standard practice in growing cacao beans.
