Sweeties! Can I make it up to you that I posted less blogs this week by sharing an amazing raw brownie recipe?
[dropcap]I[/dropcap] have been soooo busy this week! Today, for instance: I got up quite early to continue editing a new video for my YouTube channel (check my Instagram to find out what the video is about!). At noon I had a fitting for the commercial that I am shooting on Monday (I’m gonna be a bride and my groom is very handsome :D). After I finished my fitting I went straight back home to shop ingredients for half raw strawberry coconut pie and raw date energy bars.
Raw Brownie Nut Bites
If you are thinking “why is she talking about raw energy bars all the time, while the title of this blog suggests it’s about brownie nut bites?”. Well, it was my purpose to make those energy bars. But what happened is that while I was making the bars, chopping up all ingredients in my kitchen machine, I added more and more raw cocoa powder (I used this one) and (these) raw cocoa nibs. This resulted in a much richer chocolate taste than the raw energy bars! The result was very different from the energy bars. Those bars, were goood. If you like chocolate, you will also love these. They are or-gas-tic. Hm, hm, hm!
Anyway, I decided to change the recipe to go along with the changes I made and make it into a raw brownie nut bite recipe.
Just as you are used to from me, these raw brownie nut bites are gluten free (oats are naturally gluten free, but celeacs are recommended to chose certified gluten free oats, like these), vegan and processed sugar free. That’s what they call ‘clean eating’ 🙂
Have I convinced you yet to try out the recipe? If not, than I guess you just don’t like chocolate 🙂
Here’s the recipe for 25 awesome raw brownie nut bites:
- 1.8 cups/300 gram cashew nuts
- 250 gram almonds
- 1.8 cups/300 gram Medjool dates, pitted and soaked
- 1.5 cups/80 gram steel cut oats
- 4 heaping tablespoons raw cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons raw cocoa nibs
- 1 tablespoon maca
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- Grind the cashews in a food processor.
- Add the dates, maca, salt and cocoa powder and process until all ingredients have blended in.
- Add more oats if you feel the 'dough' is too soft, add water if you feel the 'dough' is too dry.
- Add the almonds and cocoa nibs and shortly pulse 3 times; you want to have chunks of almonds in your bites!
- Form the 'dough' into a ball and roll out on a flat surface into a 1.5 fingers thick tablet.
- Slice into small bars (bites) and pack each bite in a cute bag.
- Close with a cute string.
