Four years ago, I posted (yep, been writing this blog for over 4 years …. no major breakout new blogger award, but happy to still be posting, promoting Natori, and contributing to the world wide web) the recipe for Raw Brownies. Since many of you readers have not been reading since Day 1 (thank you to my parents and college girlfriends), I decided it was time to share this wonder of a recipe again! 4 ingredients, no refined sugar, super delicious, easy to make, no baking, holy ka-bomb done done done.
Rich, delicious, decadent and NO guilt!
4 ingredients? No refined sugar? No bake? SIGN ME UP!
One of my dear college friends recently visited from the West Coast and told me all about this to-die-for dessert. She knew that I was trying to cut back on eating sugar, and since this dessert only involves sugar from dates, she thought it would be a good treat for me. And boy was she right. Thanks, Kerry! Kerry found this recipe on the website My New Roots, a healthy, inspiring, and beautiful food blog with lots of exciting and interesting recipes. (This blog is amazing and you should definitely check it out).
You can purchase all these ingredients in any health food store.
* 1 cup whole walnuts
* 1 1/4 cups Medjool dates, pitted
* 1/2 cup raw cacao
* a dash of sea salt
* Place walnuts in a food processor or high quality blender and leave on high until the nuts are finely ground.
I love how easy it is to grind up nuts in a vitamix blender. The blades are serious knives!
* Add the cacao and salt. Pulse to combine.
