They are RAW, they are GLUTEN & SUGAR FREE, they are absolutely DELICIOUS, they are my BROWNIE BITES!
I have always had a soft spot for brownies but majority of commercial brownies (whether store bought or out of a packet) are laden with sugar, unhealthy fat, additives and chemicals.
So what’s the alternative? Make your own. These brownies require no cooking; you only need 5 ingredients, and are absolutely guilt free.
6 Large squares/12 Mini Pieces
15 minutes (+ I hour refrigeration minimum)
What you need:
2 Cups Raw Cashews
1 Cup Raw Cacao Powder
¾ Cup Raw Walnuts
2/3 Cup Pitted Dates (Approximately 9 large dates)
2 Tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil
Organic Maple Syrup (Optional for taste)
1 Food Processor (I use a 600 Watt Braun Food Processor)
How to make these little beauties:
Step 1: Soak dates in warm water for 10 minutes to soften then remove the pits
Step 2: Combine all ingredients in food processor, feeding dates in one at a time to ensure smooth consistency and to avoid the mixture from getting caught in the blades. (You want the mixture to be smooth and moist. If it’s too dry, add a little more coconut oil.)
Step 3: Line the baking dish with baking paper (for ease of removal later) then transfer the mixture into the dish and spread out evenly with your hands, ensuring the mixture touches all of the edges and corners of the dish.
Step 4: Cover baking dish with cling wrap or foil, then place in the fridge to set for at least an hour (I like to refrigerate mine for longer but if you can’t wait an hour is fine).
Step 5: Cut into desired amount of squares and serve.
Step 6: Share them around and ENJOY with a cup of tea!
Did you know?
Coconut oil is made from the meat of matured coconuts and has many health benefits including increases in metabolism and thyroid, it prevents wrinkles due to its medium-chain triglycerides and it can treat fungal and bacterial infections due to its lauric acid which is highly toxic to viruses.
