Raw walnut brownies

  
My favourite treat in healthy form! No refined sugar or butter just natural sweetness. These work well as an afternoon pick me up, or even better as a desert with a dollop of coconut yoghurt and some fresh berries or pomegranate seeds. No baking just set in the freezer and cut into bite sized chunks or larger squares depending how greedy you are! These brownies will keep for a few weeks in the freezer and don’t take long to defrost. As always you can use whatever combination of nuts you prefer.

Ingredients:

1 cup dates
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup almonds
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 pinches of Maldon salt
tbsp goji berries
5 tbsp cacao powder

For The topping:
Tbsp goji berries
Pinch salt
1/4 cup walnuts

What to do…

If I using normal dates, soak them in some warm water for 15 minutes. Skip this step if using medjool dates as these are naturally softer and gooier.
Place the nuts in a food processor and blitz gradually until finely chopped. Drain your dates and add to the food processor, mix until thoroughly combined. Add the remaining ingredients to the processor and mix, the mixture will come together in a ball.
Line a tray or tin with some baking paper or foil, transfer your mixture to your prepared tin and press with your hands to compact it into a large square a couple of centimetres thick. Sprinkle the toppings over the top of the brownie, then press into the surface with your hands.
Place the brownie in the freezer to set. After at least an hour remove from the freezer and chop with a sharp knife into chunks whatever size you fancy.
Enjoy your guilt free treat!
