Quite by accident I made this raw vegan brownie – all I knew was that I wanted to use some organic hazelnuts I’d picked up at Orange Grove Markets (in Lilyfield, Sydney).
I have to confess I never believed in the past when I read about a raw vegan brownie being the same texture as a traditional sugar & butter laden one but I have now eaten (literally) my own words.
It’s not often I make the same recipe twice but I’ve made this twice in the last week & am sure you will love it as much as I do
The 6 clean ingredients are:
2/3 cup hazelnut meal OR Hazelnuts (I blended them into hazelnut meal in the spice grinder attachment of my food processor)
1/4 cup Flaxseed
6 Dates, stone removed
3 tbspn Maca-Cacao mix (the brand is Power Superfoods & is available at Healthlands in Leichhardt).
2 tbspns Coconut Oil (brand = Absolute Organic from Healthlands in Leichhardt).
Optional: 1-2 tspns Buckinis for decoration (Loving Earth)
It’s as easy as blending all ingredients in a food processor then pressing it into a container – I used rectangular but use any shape you like.
Freeze for 15 minutes then eat!
Keep any remaining brownies in the fridge
