You will not believe these are actually good for you. Full of living enzymes and better than cooked brownies, these are a frequent treat for us! The beauty of this recipe is that it's so easy to whip up when you have a craving. I always double or triple it and throw some in the freezer. The coconut oil helps to keep the brownies from crumbling, and is a great way to get some in your diet, it's so good for you if you make sure to get virgin, unrefined, cold-pressed coconut oil.
- Put all ingredients into food processor.
- Process just enough to mix everything, maybe 30 seconds, just so that when you pinch some of the mixture it sticks together. If you prefer a more chewy type of brownie, the more you process it, the more chewy and less cake-like it will be. It can get quite fudgy if you process it longer. We prefer it processed less, and more cake-like. Try it different ways and discover what you like best!
- Press mixture into pan, and refrigerate for a couple of hours.
- Cut into squares and store in airtight container in fridge or freezer.
- Note: We have eaten this many times right from the food processor. It will sometimes be a little crumbly this way, which is why the refridgeration is recommended to set the mixture.
- Optional: You can also use raw carob powder instead of the raw cacao powder, or you can use 1/8 cup of each.
So quick and easy I make these all the time to take to picnics and other gatherings. They are easy to freeze for lunches as well. Typically I use water instead of coconut oil as the walnuts produce enough oil on their own.<br/>Try using different nuts, or adding dried fruit or chocolate chips.
I bought these in the store for 5$ on sale. Those were good and these were even better!!!! So good. Better than the box brownies! Lower in Fat and full of good things for your body!
