Raw Vegan Brownies

Super fast, super easy, super good. 

Call these vegan brownies a breakfast energy square; no guilt is involved. 

What you need:

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds
  • 1.75 cups pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao
  • two pinches of sea salt
  • parchment paper
  • food processor
  • medium size bowl
  • small rectangular glass container with a cover (we used one of those glass airtight food storage containers )

What you do:

  • Place walnuts in food processor and process till finely ground.
  • Add cacao and a pinch of salt and blend.
  • Add dates one at a time to the running processor (through the top feeder tube) - the ingredients should look like cake crumbs, yet stick together when squeezed (if they don't, add more dates.)
  • Add the mixture to a medium-sized bowl and fold in the almonds.
  • Transfer to a parchment paper-lined glass container.
  • Press and mold the brownie mixture into the glass container.
  • Sprinkle the other pinch of coarse sea salt on top.
  • Place in freezer for about 45 minutes.
  • Remove from freezer and slice into bite-size servings.
  • Cover and store in the fridge.

Makes about eight to ten bite-size brownies - double the recipe for more
