raw brownies

My boyos like nuts and seeds and dried fruits.  My Beloved especially likes raw foods.  I came across this recipe for peanut butter chocolate brownies that were raw, vegan, soy, and gluten free.  All that my Beloved could ask for.  The Small Mister thinks they are absolutely fabulous.  The recipe calls them two bit brownies and that is really how bit you need to cut them.  There is just that many good things to fill your tummy fast.

I used cocoa powder instead of carob.  I have this thing about carob though everyone else in the house likes it.  I also used almond butter instead of peanut butter because that was the easiest nut butter in the house to get to.  We will be making these again.

almond chocolate brownies

Note:  adapted from vegan by candlelight

1 cup and 2 tablespoons hemp hearts

1 cup medjool dates

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1/4 cup quick oats

3 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon almond butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

pinch of salt

Put everything into a food processor and blend until it becomes a ball of dough.  It took less then a minute for me.

Pat into an 8x8 in baking pan that has been lined with parchment paper.  Refrigerate for an hour or more.

Watch the smiles!
