Raw Vegan Brownies Recipe
By Loving It Vegan
🔪Prep Time: 30 minutes
For the Brownies
4 cups Walnuts (400g)
2 cups Soft Pitted Medjool Dates (350g) Packed cups
1/2 cup Cocoa Powder (42g)
For the Chocolate Topping:
1/4 cup Coconut Oil (60ml) Melted
1/4 cup Maple Syrup (60ml)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder (21g)
1Add half the walnuts, half the dates and half the cocoa powder to the food processor and process. The mix will first become crumbly and will stick to the sides, but then gradually will become sticky and start to clump together into a kind of dough. It needs to be oily and when you grab some of the dough and roll it in your fingers it must stick together.
2Transfer that to a mixing bowl and then add the second half of the walnuts, pitted dates and cocoa powder to your food processor and repeat the process. Transfer to your mixing bowl and mix together well.
3Spray an 8 x 8 square dish with non-stick spray and line it with parchment paper so that there is overhang on each side. Press the brownie mix down into the dish and pack it down with the back of a spoon.
4Melt the coconut oil and then add the maple syrup, vanilla and cocoa powder and stir or whisk together until smooth. Pour it over the brownie base and smooth down evenly.
5Place the dish into the fridge until completely set before slicing.
6Keep them stored in the fridge where they will stay good for at least a week. They are also freezer friendly!
