So here’s the recipe:
1-2 cups raw walnuts, soaked
1 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup cacao or carob powder
1/4-1/3 cup almond milk (or any nut milk of choice)
1 Tbsp – ½ cup raw cacao nibs
Raw cashews, walnuts, almonds, pecans, and/or peanuts (any nuts of choice) to garnish to make chunky.
Nut butter (to spread on top)
* MIX: Place walnuts in a food processor or blender and grind for a couple seconds to form a coarse flour. While machine is running (if using a food processor only add ingredients while running), add pitted dates, cacao or carob powder, almond milk, and salt, processing until a moist, crumb-like dough has formed.
* FORM: Spread into an 8×8 inch pan, sprinkle with cacao nibs, and press firmly into a solid brownie layer. Cut into bite-size squares and serve. Store leftovers in the fridge. Alternately, press and roll brownie dough into small balls to make brownie bites. Enjoy with a glass of almond or coconut milk-or any nut milk of choice!
* Makes about 2 dozen small squares.
Have a fudgy fabulous day - after eating this dessert! =)
