I don't care what your eating habits are, these are awesome for anyone! Seriously, we could not stop eating them last night. It was a typical lazy Friday night where we just wanted to lounge in front of the TV (we watched So You Think You Can Dance and White Collar) and we were craving something sweet.
With my new Cuisinart (okay, I might not be able to stop talking about it...I love it!) I whipped these up from The Wannabe Chef. They have all raw ingredients in them and can be made in about 5 minutes.
Raw Salted Brownies
from The Wannabe Chef
16 oz pitted dates
1/4 cup raw almond or peanut butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup nuts, I did have peanuts & half almonds
1/2 tsp salt
Chop the dates in your food processor until they come together in a ball. If they are not sticking well enough together, add a little bit of water. Add in the almond or peanut butter and cocoa and blend. Add in the nuts and salt, pulse until they are chopped. Take out of the bowl and kneed a couple of times to make sure everything is mixed. Spread into a 9x9 square on parchment and cut into 16 squares. I topped some with peanut butter as an extra layer. All good!!
*I might have eaten one for breakfast this morning!
