Raw Chocolate Chocolate Brownies

Written by contributor Felicia Clark of A Simply Raw Life.

One of my all time favorite foods to eat these days are raw desserts!  There’s just something about raw desserts and chocolate that make me happy.  They are simple to make, you don’t have to cook or bake them, they are packed with nutrition and taste fresh! Raw cacao is rich in anti-oxidants and an excellent source of iron, dietary fiber, calcium, zinc and potassium. If you have never made a raw dessert before, you will be so surprised how simple and easy this is.  I can’t wait for you to try this!

  • 4 cups walnuts
  • 2/3 cups raisins
  • 2/3 cups medjool dates pitted
  • 2/3 cups raw cacao
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  1. Place walnuts into a food processor and grind into the consistency of a meal. Don’t over process or it will release too much oil.

  3. Add the raw cacao powder, vanilla and fennel and process again until mixture is sticky yet still crumbly.
  4. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water and mix well using your hands. It should start to resemble a dough.
  5. Press the mixture into an 8 x 8 inch baking pan lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap. Chill in the freezer for 1 hour.
  6. Remove the brownie by lifting up the parchment paper and slice into desired size pieces.
  7. Store in the refrigerator for up to one week or in the freezer for one month.
