OMG!!!! I was in heaven, every spoon full of this was absolutely heaven and I didn't feel one stitch of guilt (Like I would have, had I been hoovering sugar and butter laden brownies). I didn't eat all of it but I had enough to satisfy what I had a hankering for. To make these you need a food processor. And of course I didn't wait 2 hours to dig in because I wanted the raw effect. Cooling it makes it firm and more bar/brownie like. I wanted ewey and gooey! ahhhh...
1.5C raw walnuts (unsoaked)
10 pitted medjool dates, soaked about 30 mins
1/2C carob or cocoa powder (unsweetened)
2 tsp water
- Process walnuts until very finely ground (*save some if you like crunchy walnuts in your brownie)
- Add dates & process until it sticks together
- Add carob/cocoa and process until well mixed
- Add water & mix briefly
-Stir in saved walnut pieces
- Pack firmly into square container and refrigerate or freeze (at least 2hrs before eating)
If you try these, let me know what you think? Would you hide them to keep only for yourself? I'm not sure what I'll do in the morning, I might want my kids to try these and maybe next time I'll get them to help me. Tonight I went for mini pizza's and I got the kids to top their own pizza's and I was seriously surprised at how many veggies they put on their own pizza's and then ate them :) who knew.
