The Raw Brownies - Gluten free and Vegan

The Raw Brownies!!

This is one of the easiest, fastest and yummy recipes! Its all raw... the ingredients and no baking!

This is seriously good! I have made 2 batches these holidays and most of it has been eaten by me!!

The original recipe is from this website but i have changed a few things!

This is gluten and dairy free and can be made vegan if the chocolate used is vegan or leave this out :)

2 cups whole walnuts
2 ½ cups dates
1/2 cup raw cacao (I used Dutch cocoa)
 1/4 cup coconut
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds 
1/2 cup raw unsalted almonds, roughly chopped
100g energy or dark chocolate, melted and cooled

- Place walnuts in food processor and blend on high until the nuts are finely ground. Add the cacao and salt. Pulse to combine. 

- Add the dates one at a time through the feed tube of the food processor while it is running. What you should end up with is a mix that appears rather like cake crumbs, but that when pressed, will easily stick together (if the mixture does not hold together well, add more dates). Poor in the melted chocolate.

4. Combine the walnut-cacao mix with the chopped almonds, threaded coconut and pumpkin seeds. Press into a lined cake pan or mold. Place in freezer or fridge until ready to serve (it is also easier to cut these when they are very cold). Store in an airtight container.
