these brownies are rich, chewy, and pack quite the nutritional punch, given that they're full of nuts & hemp. they also contain no refined sugar, but don't be fooled - they still taste ultra sinful! oh, and they're raw too :)
makes 12-16 brownies
1 cup dates
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup cashews
2 tbsp hemp hearts
4 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-2 tbsp agave
start by giving the dates a rough chop and ensure that there are no little bits of pit remaining. next, place all the ingredients in a food processor fitted with an s-blade and blend until all ingredients are combined and have formed a ball. this will likely take 4-5 minutes. line a small pan or banana bread tin with parchment paper and press the dough into the pan. chill in the freezer for and hour before cutting. store your brownies in the the fridge. makes 12-16 brownies depending on how you cut them. these are so good!
i think the sun might actually join us for the weekend up in northern ontario - can't wait!
i hope you enjoy a summery one too... happy weekend!
