When it comes to chocolate, cookies, desserts and more, it’s so hard to say no. Almost impossible, right?! Well here is a recipe that anyone can indulge in, at any time. Without the added processed sugar, wheat-gluten, or animal products, this is a guilt free dessert that is a huge crowd-pleaser also! There are a few different creative ways to use alternative ingredients that you wouldn’t normally think of to make this easy dessert. The ingredients are simple and few. The process is easy, you won’t even need a mixer or an oven!
When it comes to baking, the fewer ingredients the better when it comes to avoiding added harmful ingredients. Boxed cake and brownie mixes have a ton of ingredients listed on their labels. As ingredients pile up, so do the chemicals, preservatives and added dyes that you don’t want in your food, let alone your body! The best route when it comes to what you put into your body, is to keep things simple. Choose quick and easy recipes you can whip up at home without the added processed ingredients and without the harm! Not only is this recipe delicious and easy, it’s also animal product free, making it a great substitute for anyone with a dairy or egg allergy, or anyone wanting to incorporate more plant-based recipes into their life! Enjoy!
Raw Plant-Based Brownies
2 cups pitted medjool dates
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
All you’ll need is a loaf size baking pan lined with wax paper, and a food processor.
Directions: Add all the ingredients into the food processor and mix until they are well combined, sticking together like a thick cookie dough recipe. Take out the “batter” and press it into your wax paper-lined loaf size pan, sprinkling on additional nuts or chocolate chips on top to decorate. Refrigerate, cut into slices, and enjoy!
