I love chocolate and all things baked! I have been vegan for about 7 years now. The two have resulted in many interesting experiments in the kitchen. I have had many many disasters and a fair few triumphant and spectacular successes. This one goes in the later category:-
Raw Chocolate Brownies
Hand full of dates, blended with a little water
Then add to the blender:-
Hand full of walnuts or any other nuts you have in the cupboard
A good tablespoon full of flaxseed
1 - 3 teaspoons of cocoa powder (raw if you have it)
A pinch of salt
Just a little extra of somethings sweet - honey, agave, stevia........as you prefer
Roll the yummy mixture up in to balls. Then if you like you can roll the balls in chopped nuts, coconut, cocoa power........whatever takes your fancy.
So good for you and so goooooooooooood! As they are all blended up with no cooking, you can add more of anything you like - remember to taste test so they are just right. Therefore you really can't go wrong with them. Hope you enjoy.
