I got a Fabe's Organic Chocolate Raw Life Bar, and it was delicious. I tried to recreate it with this recipe, based on the ingredient list.
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts, raw (or a mixture of walnuts and almonds)
- 1⁄2 cup dates, pitted and chopped
- 2 tablespoons carob powder
- 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened coconut
- 1 tablespoon honey or 1 tablespoon agave nectar
- Chop nuts in a food processor until finely chopped.
- Add dates and process again.
- Add the rest of the ingredients in order and process until they are mixed. The mixture should be dark brown and crumbly, but it should hold together when pressed. If it doesn't hold together well enough for you, add 1-2 more dates at the end.
- Press into a small pan or a bowl, or roll into balls.
- Refrigerate to harden, then cut into squares, if desired.
- Keep refrigerated.
Excellent, I was surprised it tasted that good. Most raw foods I make are just okay to pretty good...but this is excellent! I made two batches, spread out in a pan, sprinkled chopped walnuts on top to look more like brownies. They still taste more like chewy fudge, than a brownie but that are great! I would make again in the future when wanting something chocolate. And would recommend this recipe for anyone looking for a raw food dessert or not wanting refined sugar, dairy or flour in their brownies.
Great treat for a chocolate craving! So easy to throw together in the processor, and a very forgiving recipe - substitutes don't seem to hurt the end result at all. I used a mix of different nuts and added just a bit of vanilla. Made bite size balls (well, MY bite size!) and ended up with 17 of them. Thanks Miss!
Although it's not like grandma's brownies, it does curb the cravings for sweets and what's better than chocolate? I did alter it a bit, I used raw cashews (I had them on hand) and prunes instead of dates (again on hand) oh and instead of carob, I used 5Tbs of cocoa powder (again used what I had available). There is a lot of potential for wonderful additions to this recipe, next time I am going to try adding some cherries cuz we all know they go great with chocolate ;) I did coat the balls (mine were a tad too fudgey to treat as bownies) with coconut but am looking forward to more experimentations in the future. Thank you for giving me some more inspiration in the kitchen!
