Raw Brownies

Standard

My sister-in-law sent me this recipe and they are quite nice!

Photo to follow

Ingredients:

2 cups whole walnuts (200 g package of shelled chopped walnuts is what I use because that’s what the store carries – I don’t think it matters either way)

Approximately 2 cups of pitted medjool dates – I take the pits out myself (or 700 – 800g of pitted baking dates will do in a pinch but the medjools are much better and easier to work with)

3/4 cup cocoa powder

1 cup raw unsalted almonds, roughly chopped (optional)

¼ tsp. sea salt  (I did not add salt when I made them)

Directions:

1. Place walnuts in food processor and blend on high until the nuts are finely ground.

2. Add the cocoa (and salt). Pulse to combine.

3. Pit the dates and add a couple at a time through the feed tube of the food processor while it is running. What you should end up with is a mix that appears rather like cake crumbs, but that when pressed, will easily stick together (if the mixture does not hold together well, add more dates).

4. In a large bowl (or the pan you plan on putting the brownies in), combine the walnut-cocoa-date mix with the chopped almonds. Press into a glass cake pan (8×8 or 9×9 square ). Place in freezer or fridge until ready to serve (it is also easier to cut these when they are very cold). Store in an airtight container.
