Raw Food Brownies

Brownies

Variation: Pecans?

How would you like to eat healthy enzyme rich raw vegetarian food without any flour or processed sugar?   No baking required?  Try this raw brownie recipe my wife and I adore!

This recipe is a variation that can be found in Jennifer Cornbleet’s “Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People”.  It is excellent.

Size: 8 Brownies

Equipment

  • Food Processor

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 Cups Raw Walnuts
  • dash of Sea Salt
  • 10 pitted Medjool Dates
  • 1/3 Cup Cocoa or Carob Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 Teaspoons Water

ProcessingChop 1/4 cup of the walnuts and set aside.  Place the remaining walnuts and salt in a food processor fitted with the “S” blade and process until finely ground.  Add the dates and process until the mixture sticks together.  Add the cocoa or carob powder and vanilla and proccess until evenly distributed.  Add the water and process briefly.

Transfer to a mixing bowl.  Add the reserved chopped walnuts (and add up to 1/4 cup dried cherries if you want another variation).  Mix well using your hands.  Pack the mixture firmly into a square container.

Brownies will keep for one week in the refrigerator (if you can make them last that long without eating them all!) or a month in the freezer.
