May I introduce you to:
THE ULTIMATE NoBAKE CHOCOLATE BROWNIE
1 cup equal parts walnuts and pecans (or one of the two), ideally soaked rinsed and dehydrated
5 medjool dates, pitted (if dates are very dry, soak in water for 20 minutes)
2 TBSP raw cacao powder or carob powder
1/2 vanilla bean, scraped
1 pinch of sea salt
a dash of water water, if necessary
Roughly chop nuts manually, in a blender or food processor.
Put 2 TBSP of the chopped nuts aside and process the remaining nuts into a finely ground consistency.
Add cacao, salt and vanilla.
Add the pitted dates piece by piece and process until the mixture is sticky, add water if necessary.
Finally fold in the nut crumbs.
Shape into squares or balls or press into silicone moulds, then chill until serving.
Store refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
* Notes: *
C = cup, 240 ml
1/2 C = half a cup, 120 ml or / TBSP
1/4 C = quarter of a cup, 60 ml or 4 TBSP
TBSP = table spoon, 15 ml or 3 tsp
tsp = tea spoon, 5 ml
Liquid of choice = water, coconut water or plant based milk (check out my book “Milk. Vegan” with over 20 recipes!)
“Soft dates” = medjool are usually best. If necessary, soak briefly, then drain excess water. The soaking water is super sweet by the way!
Sweetener of choice = dates or other dried fruit, rice syrup, xylitol, stevia, coconut nectar, maple syrup, agave nectar, vegan honey
