These brownies are flourless, eggless, and 100% guilt free. A decadent sweet treat that can be whipped up within minutes. With a heavenly coconut frosting! This recipe is what we officially call a party in the mouth.
-10-15 pitted medjool dates
-1 cup walnuts
-1/2 cup Real, Raw Cacao Powder
-1 tea. Raw Ground Vanilla Powder or (pure vanilla extract)
-2 cups Raw Coconut Creme (or make your own by blending organic & raw shredded coconut for about 10 minutes)
-1/2 cup Raw Coconut Oil
-1/2 cup Raw Honey or Coconut Nectar
-1 tea. Raw Ground Vanilla (Powder) (or simply use pure vanilla extract)
Blend in food processor and adjust to taste and consistency. I tend to throw things in without measuring so you may need more coconut oil if it's not blending smoothly, or more honey and/or vanilla if it's not sweet enough for you (but the coconut butter makes it super rich so don't go overboard). Place back in freezer for 5-10 minutes to harden. Then put in fridge and take out 10 minutes before serving (made 9 brownies). Then prepare for and enjoy your raw foodgasm!
For the Brownie:
In a food processor (fitted with the 'S' blade) or blender, process the walnuts until chopped into tiny bits. It is ok if a couple large pieces remain. Depending on if you prefer larger chunks textures or a finer consistency.
Once you are happy with consistency, add all remaining ingredients, add a bit of water if too dry. Process until well combined and a dough ball has formed.
Then press into a lined square pan, 9x9 will work great for this batter. Or simple roll into balls or place into moulds of choice.
Put in freezer for 5-10 minutes to form while you make the coconut frosting.
For the Coconut Frosting:
Blend all ingredients in food processor and adjust to taste and consistency. If it's not blending smoothly enough add a touch more coconut oil, or more honey and/or vanilla if it's not sweet enough for you (but the coconut creme makes it super rich!)
Place back in freezer for 5-10 minutes to harden.
Then transfer to the fridge to chill and take out 10 minutes before serving.
Prepare for and enjoy your raw foodgasm!
