Raw Gluten Free Brownies
Updated: Nov 15, 2021
Who does not like a fudgy brownie to cheer up the days? I honestly love brownies (well, desserts in general). But if I start eating one, I could finish the whole tray in the same day!
That is why, healthy brownies help first satisfying your appetite quite quickly and second eating guilt-free :)
1 cup and half walnuts plus others to decorate
1 cup almonds
2 cups unpitted dates (soaked in water first)
3/4 cup cacao powder
Set aside the dates and leave them soaking for minimum one hour. Then drain them and blend all together until getting a sticky dough. Set it aside.
Blend together the walnuts and almonds until finely ground. Add the cacao powder and sea salt to taste, and process. Now we will add slowly the dates to the mix, while processing everything at the same time.
Add one spoon of dates, blend, and repeat until you reach a dough that can hold together. Not super sticky like a puree, but consistent. Hence, you may not need eventually all dates.
Get a small square tray and first cover it with baking paper. Then add the mixture, add walnuts on top and press down using another baking paper. We use baking/parchment paper to avoid getting the dough stick to our hands. Set it aside in the fridge for 20min.
