I think recipe is going to save me from my sweets cravings.
Raw Fudgie Brownies
1 cup walnuts
1 cup dates, pitted (about 8 big dates)
1/4 cocoa powder
Process in the food processor until well blended. Press into a small (8x8) pan and pop in the freezer until they are firm enough to cut. OR you can roll the dough into "truffles." Store in a zip lock in the freezer. (I rolled mine into balls.)
Obviously, for this to be "raw" you need to use the raw versions of the ingredients.
I added about a Tbs of this raw chocolate sauce I love just to make it a little sticker, but it probably wasn't necessary. A word to the wise, dates (not unlike prunes and other dried fruits) do have a laxative effect. So don't go and eat the whole batch at once, k?
Sorry no pic, but they are brown and rich looking. ;)
ETA: shell, they are dried dates and I got them at the produce market. I'm guessing most grocery stores have them either with the rainsins or the bulk foods.
