Raw Chocolate Brownies

IMG_8248[1]

Morning all! Here is something that is guaranteed to brighten up your Monday morning… Raw Chocolate Brownies!

They are an amazing guilt-free treat, full of only good, wholesome ingredients. They’re perfect for those afternoon cravings for something sweet (that I seem to get rather a lot), or as a delicious dessert. The recipe is from health guru Madeleine Shaw. I absolutely love her recipe book Get The Glow- it’s hard to believe that everything she creates is so healthy because it all tastes so damn good!

I altered the recipe slightly, and threw in a few almonds as well as hazelnuts and unfortunately did not have any cacao powder, so used some trusty cocoa powder instead, which works just as well.

The recipe:

150g hazelnuts

150g Medjool dates, stoned

small pinch of salt

50g raw cacao powder (or cocoa)

3 tbsp coconut oil

Simply blend the hazelnuts (and extra almonds, if you so wish) in a food processor for 3 minutes, then add the dates, salt and cocoa powder. Gradually add in the coconut oil. Then once it is all blended together and smooth, spoon the mixture into a cake tin. You then put the mix in the freezer to set for 30 minutes, and then pop it in the fridge until you’re ready to serve.

I’m really craving one as I write this!

I also just wanted to take the time to say thankyou to all of my lovely new followers, I can’t believe I’ve reached over 200! I decided it was time to re-vamp my blog, so check out the new style if you get a chance!

Have a great day everyone x
