Raw Chipotle Chocolate Brownies

April 19, 2012

 

Raw

Gluten Free

Sweetened with honey and fruit

Walnuts and Coconut Oil

CHIPOTLE!

You can’t go wrong!

This is a super simple recipe that comes from RAWMAZING and there are a lot of other raw recipes there that I’d love to try!

 I used honey in place of Agave but by using Agave you’d also be able to please your vegan friends as well 🙂

I cut back on the chipotle powder as the stuff I have is super spicy and I didn’t want to go too crazy.

These brownies are surprisingly dense and fudgy, I guarantee you’ll love them and I betcha you can’t eat just one!

Raw Chipotle Chocolate Brownies makes 16 2 inch brownies recipe from RAWMAZING

  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 1 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground chipotle powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup dried figs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp honey (you may not need to add this, it depends on how sticky your dates are)

Topping

  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

Pulse the walnuts in a food processor until finely ground.

Add the salt, cocoa and spices and pulse until combined.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Add the figs and dates and process until everything is combined, add the vanilla.  At this point the mixture should stick together when gently pressed.  You can decide here if the honey is necessary. 

Press the mixture into an 8 X 8″ pan and chill.

To make the topping:

whisk together all of the ingredients and pour onto brownie.  Chill for about an hour until cutting into yummy squares.

Enjoy!
