Raw Brownies
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8-10 pieces
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup medjool dates (About 10 pitted. When you get the dates, you will have to slit them and pop the seed out. It's really easy, and not messy at all.)
  • ⅓ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup almonds (chopped)
  • ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
Instructions
  1. Put walnuts in food processor and process until they are the consistency of meal.
  2. Add dates one at a time.
  3. Add salt, cocoa powder, and cinnamon.
  4. Chop or beat the almonds to pieces, then finish them up in the food processor for a couple of pulses.
  5. Use a small baking dish. (I used a smaller size, but still just used half of it.) Take the mixture which should feel really mealy and dump it in pan, and then just press it down evenly. (It reminds me of the consistency of a Lara bar.)
  6. Be sure to line your pan with wax paper.
  7. Refridgerate for about 15 minutes to firm it up.
  8. COOK'S NOTE: You will be surprised how much natural oil the nuts have in them, along with the dates, that enable this to bind and stick together. When you press it down, you’ll have oily hands!
