Okay, I am in love with this raw dessert…and you will be too if you try it (gluten-free, diary-free, GUILT-FREE). Okay, ready?
Throw the nuts in a food processor and blend until the natural oils begin to surface. Throw in the cocoa powder and blend more. Add in the dates, vanilla extract and sea salt. Blend more until the mixture begins to stick to itself. Add in the raw honey (this stuff is soooooo good, its unbelievable). Mix in the food processor until the dough forms a ball. Throw in fridge until mixture is cooled. Remove chilled dough from the fridge and roll into bite-sized balls – top with sesame seeds or chopped walnuts and store in fridge or freezer.
Although I wouldn’t advise eating several of these in one sitting because of the sugar content (albeit natural sugars), these raw brownie bites make a perfect, guilt-free dessert/snack chock full of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin E, magnesium, Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, etc. Bettcha can’t say that about your typical brownie, now can you?
