RAW Chocolate Brownies

Brownie

INGREDIENTS

2.5 cups of dates chopped and pitted

1 cup of activated almonds

1 cup of almond meal

1/3 cup of carob powder

1/2 cup of raw cacao nibs

2 tablespoons of extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil

Desiccated coconut.

 

METHOD

1 Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan on a very low heat until liquid, set aside. Then, in a food processor blitz the chopped dates, almond meal and walnuts until combined and slightly chunky.

2 Pour the carob powder into the bowl with the coconut oil and stir to combine. Once combined, pour the oil/carob into the food processer with the mixture and blitz until batter is smooth.

3 If the mixture is stuck together and no longer blitzing, pull it out of the food processer and knead the mixture until evenly combined.

4 If you haven’t already transferred the mixture to a bowl, do so now and stir through the cacao nibs.

5 Place the mixture into a lined baking dish, pressing down firmly with your fingers so it is even.

6 Place in the refrigerator for several hours until set.

7 Sprinkle with desiccated coconut and slice into pieces and serve.
