2 Cups Walnuts
1 Cup Medjool Dates, pitted
1/2 Avocado, cut into small chunks
2 Tbsp raw Honey
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1/2 Tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
1/4 Tsp Almond Extract
1/2 Cup raw Cacao Powder (unsweetened)
Pinch of salt
adapted from livesimply.
Step 1 Place nuts and dates in a food processor and pulse until well processed. Add all other ingredients and process until the mixture becomes dough like.
Step 2 Roll dough into balls or cut into squares. For squares spread flat and even into the bottom of a pan, and allow to set for a few hours before cutting.
I found that there was some excess liquid that I needed to allow to drain off and dry out overnight before serving. I coated the bottom of a rectangular baking pan with the brownie “dough” so that it could sit, solidify, and so I could remove the liquid. In the future I plan to play with the recipe to remove this liquid!
Update: I just made these without the Coconut Oil and found that they were perfect in consistency and way less liquid-y. I also ended up using half raw honey and half maple syrup based upon what I had in my kitchen and it worked well, so substitute away… Up next raw ginger snaps!!!
