My husband has a bit of a sweet tooth. He is particularly fond of chocolate brownies. I've never really understood his love of these as I'm not a fan of rich or very sweet treats. But I took pity on him and decided to create a healthy version for him which I also happen to be rather partial to!
There are quite a few raw food brownie recipes out there, but I've created one that I think is rather perfect! They are chocolaty, sweet and chewy and reported to be totally scrummy by all my taste testers so far! These are a great idea for children's parties as an alternative to the traditional cake as they resemble something children are familiar with so they are likely to want to to eat them. But don't just take my word for it, try them!
2 Cups of ground almonds
2 cups of pitted dates, roughly chopped
1/2 cup raw cacao (or a good quality cocoa such as green and blacks, though it won't be as nutrient rich)
1-2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 - 3/4 cup dried unsweetened cherries
Put all the ingredients except the dried cherries into a food processor. Pulse until it comes together as a crumbly dough.
