 Chocolate Rawnies

Super fast, super easy, super good. Just call them a breakfast energy square and there's no guilt involved. Here's the recipe:

What you need:
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds
  • 1.75 cups pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao
  • two pinches sea salt
  • parchment paper
  • food processor
  • medium size bowl
  • small rectangular glass container with 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 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 they'll stick together when squeezed (if they don't, add more dates)
  • add the mixture to a medium size 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 rawnies - double the recipe for more
