Who doesn't love chocolate... And who doesn't love chocolate in the form of a brownie? If you know me then you know that I absolutely adore chocolate, and what I found is that going vegan hasn't stopped my chocolate intake at all haha. In fact, it makes it so much more enjoyable! This is one of my favourite brownie recipes AND they are healthy! All ingredients are natural and no added nasties such as milk and eggs (yuck). So here it is, a deliciously, healthy, vegan brownie!
Equipment You'll Need:
- A food processor or high powered blender
- A spatula
- Measuring Cups
- A bowl
- Baking Paper
- 2 cups of Walnuts
- 1 cup of Cacao
- 1/4 tbsp of Salt
- 2.5 cups of Juicy Medjool Dates
- 1 cup of roughly chopped almonds
- 1/2 cup of Desiccated Coconut
In your food processor or high powered blender, place in 2 cups of walnuts and pulse until they are finely grounded. Then, add in your cup of cacao and sea salt and pulse to mix the ingredients together. Then, add in your 2.5 cups of medal dates but add them ONE AT A TIME! I made the mistake once of adding them all and my blender was not happy! Once you have pulsed them into a nice, crumbly mixture they are ready to be scooped out of the blender (or processor) with your trusty spatula. If your mixture doesn't stick together when you press it with your fingers, then just add in some more dates! Once it's all scooped out, add it into a big bowl and then add your finely chopped almonds (you can also add other little things like goji berries if you like) and mix it all up with your hands. Then, get your desiccated coconut and sprinkle it through the mixture and then spread it onto a tray lined with baking paper. You can also add more coconut once it's all laid out for extra taste and decoration. Then place the tray in the fridge or freezer until it's set (not squishy). Once it's hardened up a bit, you can cut it into squares and EAT YOUR HEART OUT! And don't worry if you eat them before they're set - I often do this (nothing wrong with that haha).
