It is no secret that I like making and eating desserts made of chocolate. There are plenty of recipe on my blog but the most popular recipes are crunchy chocolate spread and sweet potato brownies. If you have tried making them let me know how it went. I would love to get your thoughts and comments.
When I first made brownies I was about 15 years old. They were made of sugar, chocolate and butter. All bad for your health ingredients but they tasted amazing. Ever since brownies have been my baking obsession as they are so simple to make and everyone enjoys them.
About a year ago I attended my first raw eating cookery class where I learnt the basics of raw eating. Since then I’ve been experimenting with different raw recipes one of my latest inventions are these raw brownies bites. I used all natural ingredients such as dates, almonds, walnuts and of course plenty of cacao.
Makes: 18 small bites
Preparation time: 15 minutes
- 1 cup dates
- 1/2 cup toasted almonds
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1 tbsp raw cacao powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- In a high-speed food processor process the dates until they form a paste, then add the cacao powder, vanilla essence, salt, and water.
- Process until thoroughly combined. Add half the amounts nuts and process until a sticky dough has formed.
- Add the remaining nuts and pulse for about 2 minutes or until well combined but you still have some large pieces of nuts.
- Wrap the dough in a cling film and allow it to set in the fridge for about 2 hours.
- Once set, roll out about 18 small balls.
- Store in airtight container in the fridge or kitchen cupboard.
