These brownies are super super SUPER rich and delicious, you won’t even notice they aren’t baked!
All you need to make these bad boys are a high speed food processor, a dish (I personally use an 8x6 Pyrex dish), and four ingredients:
2 Cups Medjool Dates
1 Cup Walnuts(or your preference of nut)
1 Cup Cacao Powder(or cocoa if you prefer)
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
In your food processor add:
Medjool Dates (make sure these aren’t super dry, and if your dates are on the dry side you can soak them in water for about 10 minutes), Walnuts, Vanilla Extract, and blend for about 30-60 seconds!
Next, you will add in theCacao Powder, or cocoa powder, and blend for another 60-120 seconds or until the mixture is completely combined, sticking together, and looks like a giant ball of brownie batter!
Push the mixture down into your dish, sprinkle with crushed walnut pieces (optional), and set in the fridge for about 30 minutes! You can also top them with vegan chocolate chips!
They’re completely edible and don’t need to be baked, so you can eat them immediately, or roll the mixture into brownie balls, but I prefer letting them set up in the fridge for a while!
Additional options: peppermint extract for peppermint fudge brownies, or cayenne pepper for more of a Mexican hot chocolate take on these brownies!
