As you may have heard me mention, we are trying to some extent to get away from eating quite as much meat and processed foods in general. We won't talk about the giant pre-packaged cinnamon roll I had this morning...I guess the key word here is trying.
So this endeavor has me looking for replacements for some of my favorite naughty treats that aren't quite as naughty...hence these raw brownies.
Do they taste like fresh from the oven, decadent, dripping with chocolate brownies? Well, of course not. But seriously they're not bad. If you're someone like me who thinks they have to have their chocolate sweet fix everyday, they are a pretty good alternative.
Here's the recipe I found at 28 Cooks
1/2 c dried dates
1/2 c dried cherries
1/4 c carob powder (or cocoa powder)
1 c walnuts
3 tbsp agave nectar (or honey)
Process all in food processor until ingredients are well mixed and chopped. Press into a small square baking pan and freeze for 1 hour. Slice brownies into 12 pieces. Store in fridge
