No Bake Brownies

No-Bake Brownies

Somewhere between a brownie, a fudgey square, and an ‘oh my god’ exclamation, lies this fantastic dessert. Yet made with just fruits, nuts, and pure cacao, this treat is nutritionally on par with a natural energy bar or trail mix — what a deal!  Not that you actually needed an excuse to eat a brownie. Check out the No Bake Brownie VIDEO!

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup medjool dates, pits removed
1 cup raw walnut pieces
½ cup cacao powder
pinch sea salt
1 Tbsp – ½ cup Navitas Naturals Sweetened Cacao Nibs, or regular raw cacao nibs (use quantity to taste)

DIRECTIONS:

Mix: Place walnuts in a food processor and grind for a couple seconds to form a coarse flour. While machine is running, add pitted dates, cacao powder and salt, processing until a moist, crumb-like dough has formed.

Form: Spread into an 8×8 inch pan, sprinkle with cacao nibs, and press firmly into a solid brownie layer. Cut into bite-size squares and serve. Alternately, press and roll brownie dough into small balls to make brownie bites.

Makes about 2 dozen small squares.

Healthy benefits: high antioxidants, magnesium and iron, dairy-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free
