fools gold


This raw brownie is probably the most deceptive un-baked baked treat out there. It only has five ingredients and takes only five minutes to make. The result is a ridiculously fudgy and perfectly sweet 'brownie' that even the oldest of seasoned bakers wouldn't be able to pick isn't the real deal. Give it a go. It's legit.

p.s...Is it weird that I get such great satisfaction out of fooling people into thinking they are eating something bad when they are not? Probably.

Raw Brownie
From My New Roots 

2 cups walnuts
2 cups pitted medjool dates
1 cup cocoa powder
1 cup almonds
Sea salt

Place walnuts and cocoa in a food processor and blitz until fine and crumbly. Add in the dates and a teaspoon of sea salt flakes and whiz to combine.

Stir through whole almonds with a spoon then pour the mixture into a lined tin. Press the brownie "batter" down with your hands to achieve an even thickness. Set aside in the fridge to harden before cutting up and serving.
