Vegan, raw, and gluten-free sweets to be enjoyed guilt-free.
- 2 1/2 cups pitted dates loosely packed
- 1 1/2 cups walnuts
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
Mix together the dates, walnuts, 6 Tbsp. cacao powder, 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 2 tsp. water and salt in a food processor. Process that mess until completely it's smooth.
Lightly grease (or line with wax paper) a square baking dish then transfer dough to the dish. Press dough very firmly into the dish with your hands until it's evenly distributed.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine the remaining 1/4 cup cocoa powder, remaining 1/2 tsp. vanilla, maple syrup, and oil. Stir this mixture until it becomes a paste. Congratulations, you just made frosting. Spread the paste evenly over the dough in your baking dish.
Refrigerate the brownies for at least 2 hours to get 'em nice and thick, and you're done.
