Do yourself a huge favor and make these. You will be very happy you did.
2 cups soaked walnuts
1/2 cup soaked almonds
1 cup raw cacao powder
2 cups dates
2 tsp. coconut oil (melted)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Dash of salt
Process the walnuts, and almonds, in a food processor until finely ground. Add cacao powder, vanilla, coconut oil, and salt and process a bit more. While processor is running, add dates one by one through the shoot. You will end up with a mixture that looks very crumbly and dry, but will stick together. (If it doesn't stick together well, add a few more dates.) Press your brownie batter firmly into a pan coated with a bit of coconut oil.
2 cups soaked cashews
1/2 cup espresso (if you don't have an espresso maker a strong batch of coffee will work fine.)
1 tsp coconut oil (melted)
1/4 cup agave
Make the frosting in a high speed blender. Pour over the brownies. Chill in the freezer or fridge for about 2 hours. I recommend the freezer... it turns the frosting into coffee ice cream!
Our life is the sum total of our choices. We always have a choice.
