The Brownie

March 29, 2020 | BakingRecipeSweet

I’ve recently felt the need to get back to my roots to where my love for food started. It was a time when I changed my lifestyle for the better. I started excersising and changed my diet. I did my research online and quickly became a big fan of Sarah from My New Roots. Her wonderful recipe for this Raw Brownie really changed how I looked at cooking – and how fun it could be discovering cooking and creating new, healthy recipes.

Now, this blog won’t change into an all health-focused site, but some times when I get inspired- and I have this amazing recipe at hand, I just need to share it with you. As I always do I made some changes to the recipe and used my favorite nut instead of almonds; pecan nuts!

This is incredibly easy to make as long as you own a food processor- and it only has 5 ingredients! The recipe can easily be halved, but I wanted to make a big batch so I could freeze it.

THE BROWNIE

1 dl (1/2 cup) pecan nuts, roasted

400 g walnuts

2 dl (1 cup) cocoa powder (raw if possible, but not a must)

2 tsp sea salt

50 medjool dates, soft

Direction

    1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celcius. Spread the pecan nuts on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 15 minutes. Let cool.
    2. Add the walnuts, cocoa powder and sea salt in the food processor and blits until finely ground.
    3. Add the dates and pulse until well combined. What you want to end up with is a dough that looks like bread crumbs, but sticks easily together when pressed.
    4. Spread the dough out on a lined cake pan and press as flat as you desire.
    5. Roughly chop your pecan nuts and spread on the top of the brownie. Lightly press down to make sure they stick.
    6. Drizzle some more sea salt on top and set in the fridge until cold and firm before slicing.
    7. Keep in the fridge – or freezer for that healthy pick me up snack whenever you want!
