Brownies (no Cooking Required)

Recommended Posts

A raw foods recipe, that's pretty easy, and darned tasty. No eggs, flour, white sugar, soy, milk, etc. It DOES contain nuts and chocolate.

2 cups pitted dates

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa

3/4 cup nut meal (like walnut) + extra for rolling

1/8 to 1/4 honey (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a food processor (like a Cuisinart) until well combined and VERY dense, adding more nut meal (or cocoa!) if necessary. (The food processor may not be able to keep up with it very well.) Measure out 1/8th cup (2 tbsp) at a time and drop (in a ball) into a dish of extra nut meal. Roll it around to coat it, and then flatten a bit. Store between pieces of plastic wrap in the fridge.

Thanks, Tiffany. They sound delicious! I've already copied the recipe onto a card. By chance, we've got all the ingredients in the cabinet, so maybe I'll make some today. Before I found out that I had Celiac I was seriously addicted to date rolls that I used to buy at the health food store. They didn't have cocoa or nuts, and were rolled in coconut...great with a cup of green tea. They were packaged in the store from a larger container purchased from a bulk supplier and I tried without success, to get an employee to find out the ingredients for me, to see if they were safe. So no more date rolls. This sounds like the perfect substitute, and probably better. I might roll them in coconut instead of the nuts because I love coconut. Thanks again for sharing.

What is nut meal? Is it a specialty product? Or just ground nuts (without the shell of course)?

yep - just ground up nuts. I'm partial to a version I made using almonds for the nuts and raspberry jam in place of the honey, but the other ones were walnuts and quite tasty as well - and more "traditional brownie". But you can use any nut you're a fan of.
