The best thing about these is that you can tell yourself that they are healthy while you continue to cram one after another into your mouth.
I adapted a recipe that I saw over at The Rawtarian to make these delicious decadent little devils.
Decadent Raw Brownies
- 2 cups pecans
- 2 cups pitted dates
- 4 tablespoons raw coconut butter
- 4 tablespoons raw honey
- 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- sprinkling of sesame seeds for topping
Making these is super duper easy. In your favorite food processor, add the pecans and process until super crumbly. Add in all of the other ingredients and process away! It may take some time for your coconut butter to melt down and become liquidy, but do not fret… have patience!
In a few minutes you will have some delicious brownie batter ready to be pressed into your glass baking dish and put in the fridge for an hour or two to take form. Also, if you are adverse to using vanilla extract for whatever reason or you are just feeling extra fancy, use vanilla beans in this recipe.
For added fun and adventure, use cookie cut out shapes once the brownies have solidified! I used hearts, because I’mma lover.
