Raw Chocolate Brownies

My friend Nora gave me this recipe and I modified it to be sulfite free (but not by much – her recipe was awesome!). It is simple and super healthy, I think you are going to love it!

  •   1 Cup raw walnuts
  •   1 Cup raw pecans
  •   2 Cups pitted dates
  •   1/2 Cup (heaping if you like dark chocolate) raw cacao powder
  •   2 T Almond butter
  •   cacao nibs (optional) (check to be sure they are pure and don’t have any added flavors, sugars or liquor)
  • Water (optional)

Process first 3 ingredients in a food processor until chopped very fine. Add cacao powder and run again until mixed in, then add almond butter and run again. Sprinkle in cacao nibs if desired.  If you prefer a more fudge like brownie, stream a tablespoon at a time of water into the mixture while the processor is running. I used about 4 tablespoons because I like it really fudgy! Press into a baking pan,(I used an 8x 4 pan so it would be thicker, but a 9 x 9 pan would work just fine). Cover and place in refrigerator for 2 – 3 hours. Then try not to eat it all at once….

    Confused, you list almonds as containing sulfites on another page, but use almond butter here?

      Almonds do not contain sulfites, but can be blanched in water containing sulfites. As always, only use organic food without chemical treatment.

    Where do you get sulfite-free dates from? Or any dried fruits for that matter!
