These brownies have it all: The moist and chewy texture, the rich chocolate taste, they are easy to prepare and they are actually quite healthy too! The thing they require most is time, So what are we waiting for – here comes the recipe!
2,5 – 3dl cashew nuts
1,25 dl sunflower seeds
20-25 pitted dates
2-2.5 dl raw cacao powder
1/2 dl (or a bit more) virgin coconut oil and 1 table spoon almond oil
1/2 tea spoon sea salt or fleur de sel
1/2 tea spoon of finely chopped red chili or 1 table spoon coconut flakes for a little twist.
First you’ll need to let the cashew nuts and sunflower seeds to soak; a minimum of 5h is required. measure the nuts and seeds in a bowl and cover with warm water. About 30min before the nuts and seeds are ready, soak the dates in warm water too. Mix the nuts and seeds into a paste using a blender bar. If you want your brownies to have a little crunch, don’t make a totally fine mix but leave some pieces of nuts in. Mix the dates into a paste too, using a little bit of the soaking water.
The coconut oil needs to be runny, so melt it before if needed. Then just mix all the ingredients together into a heavenly chocolate paste.
Place the mix into a baking pan (line it if the material requires it) with gently tapping it with your fingers to make an even surface. You can even use a square plastic lunch box if you have a big enough one. You’ll still need to wait a little bit longer as the baking pan now needs to go to the fridge for at least 2-3 hours. Take it out 20-30 min before serving and decorate with some more chocolate powder, almond flakes or a thin slice of fresh red chili if you went for the spicy version. Cut in square pieces and enjoy, they really are very good.
