>Raw Blueberry Brownies; MoFo#1

Posted on

>This weekend I decided to play with raw food combinations. I was inspired by Sarafae of addictedtoveggies.com to eat more raw foods. This recipe is based on one I got from Celine of havecakewilltravel.com
This makes an 8X8 square pan.
Soak for at least one hour:
8 pitted raw dates (and)
1/3 cup dried blueberries
in enough water to cover completely. I saved the soaking water to sweeten other things I’m making; you never know when you’ll need a light raw sweetener.
Food process:
3/4 c raw walnuts, 3 T cocoa powder (i used raw cacao; but regular cocoa powder works fine), and 2 T agave. Remove this crust like mixture from your food processor.
Drain dates and blueberries; food process until well combined and until you can no longer see whole blueberries.
In three batches; add your dry ingredients to your food processor; process until all is well combined.
Line your 8X8 pan with enough plastic wrap to wrap all brownies completely; spread mixture into pan and freeze. I store these in the freezer and take them out when i want them; they never freeze so solidly that you can’t bite into them.

About laceythevegan

I'm a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I'd rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Milk tastes better than soy milk. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn't mean I'm the healthiest person. I tend to avoid eating out because I know I can make food that tastes better at home.
