Rich, Raw Goji Brownies
I think you’d have to search pretty far and wide to find a person who didn’t like brownies. Some people like them cakey, some people like them squidgy, other people like them with a crisp sugary topping. But I think pretty much everyone has a place in their heart for a good brownie.
- 2 cups walnuts
- 1 cup medjool dates
- 1 cup cacao powder
- 2 heaped tbsp coconut oil
- 1/2 cup Coconut Brownie Superseeds
- 1 handful goji berries
- 1 handful cacao nibs
- First, line a square baking tin with parchment. I use one that is about 20cm.
- Using a food processor, process walnuts until they resemble a crumble texture.
- Next, add your dates, cacao and coconut oil.
- Pulse a few times to combine and then process until well mixed and evenly textured.
- Remove the blade and then tip the brownie mix from the food processor into a medium sized bowl.
- Then add your Superseeds, goji berries and cacao nibs (if you are using them) and mix it all together using your hands. The reason I suggest doing this with your hands and not in the processor is to achieve more of a varied texture in the brownie.
- Finally, flatten out your brownie mix into the lined tin and push down with your hands so that it is packed down.
- Place the tray in the freezer and leave for about 30 mins to harden.
- Remove and then, using a sharp kitchen knife, score into 16 pieces. I advise to keep in the fridge until serving. They will last up to a week this way. You can also freeze them and keep them up to four months.
