Time to make some semi – raw vegan brownies!
It’s no secret that eating unprocessed foods on a regular basis can help you feel better AND look better. I’ve thought many times about starting a raw vegan diet, and for what its worth, I enjoy eating uncooked foods. I have to admit that up until now I haven’t had any success in persuading myself to tackle this challenge…what can I say, I enjoy baking too much (don’t judge me; saying no to cookies, cakes and brownies takes real willpower!).
Needless to say, raw foodism intrigues me. So one day, I picked up my laptop and decided to do some research. It was fascinating to see how many exciting desserts you can prepare without switching on the oven, so I thought I’d give it a go. These rich (almost) raw vegan brownies are the result of my little experiment, and I think they turned out quite delicious. These brownies are not 100% raw but you can easily change that by substituting the milk with almond butter or peanut butter, and leaving out the icing. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
To make this dessert, you’ll need:
1. Throw all the brownie ingredients in a food processor, starting with the dry fruits. You should end up with a gooey texture. If the mixture is too solid, add a dash of soy milk.
2. In a bowl, mix all the icing ingredients together and set aside.
3. To get that nice cake/brownie shape, spread the brownie mixture in a small tray. Top off with a thin layer of icing and coconut flakes. Stick in the fridge for a couple of hours before eating. Decorate with coconut flakes or dry red berries.
Tip: WARNING! The icing is super duper ultra mega sweet. So if you don´t love really sweet desserts, make these brownies without the icing.
