If you ask me to name my favorite dessert, it is without a doubt brownies. I came up with this easy raw version. These brownies can be enjoyed cold (more like fudge) or at room temp (more like a brownie).
1.5 cups nuts, soaked
1 cup dried and pitted dates, soaked
1 cup cocoa powder
3 tablespoons maple syrup
.5 cup shredded coconut
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
- Place dates, nuts, coconut, coconut oil and maple syrup in a food processor and pulse until broken down thoroughly.
- Add cocoa a quarter cup at a time, scrapping down the sides of the processor when needed.
- Add salt and vanilla and pulse until combined and a "dough" forms.
- Transfer to a sprayed 8x8 dish and refrigerate for at least an hour.
- Cut into squares.
