Raw Brownies with a chocolate topping | Recipe

 Recently i have been trying to follow a plant based/vegan diet. The one thing i questioned that i didn't think i could give up wasn't meat or dairy but sweet treats. I do love my chocolate and although nothing will ever beat it I'm happy to try new recipes and find a love for raw treats just like i have a raw diet. I have been trying a few brownie recipes and this is one i really do like and also both my children like them too, even if your not following a raw diet, these are a healthy alternative to the normal brownie.

They are really easy to make and the only equipment you will need is a food processor and a baking tray lined with baking paper. The ingredients can be found in most supermarkets.

For the brownies you will need:
1 cup ground Almonds
400g pitted medjool dates
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2-3 tablespoons maple syrup

~Simply mix all the ingredients in a food processor, until it forms a sticky dough. If it seems a little dry add the 3rd tablespoon maple syrup.
~ Once the dough has formed, put it in a lined baking tray. Using a spatula press down the dough to form a flat brownie.
~Place in the freezer for an hour

For the chocolate topping:
Third cup of raw cacao power
Half a cup of melted coconut oil
quarter cup of maple syrup

~ Add all the ingredients into a food processor the pour on top of the brownie mix, spreading out with a spatula. Work quickly with this as it does harder quickly and place back in the freezer.

Cut into squares and store in a air tight container, separate each brownie with a square of baking powder as they are quite sticky and may stick together.
