I hope you are all enjoying your week – it’s almost the weekend! These brownies will help get you through the last few hours in work whilst providing you with a variety of vitamins such as A, B, B6 and E.

These brownies are a recreation of The Hardihood’s that I tried during my adventure in London. The reason they stood out so much to me was the light, fluffy frosting on top that perfectly complimented the gooey texture of the brownie. Utter luxury that your taste buds will thank you for.

RAW BROWNIES:

180g packets x 2 Medjool Dates, pitted (available in SuperValu)

4 Tablespoons Coconut Oil melted

6 Tablespoons Raw Cacao Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

2 Tablespoons Tamari

3 Tablespoons Chia Seeds

1/2 Ripe Avocado

1/2 Cup Pecans or Cashews

1 Tablespoon Cacao Nibs

Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender (I used a Nutribullet), except for the nibs, until all the ingredients have combined to make a smooth, gooey texture. Add a little water if needed. Add the nibs to the mixture and combine, then place in a tin (lined with parchment paper). Use a glass or rolling pin to ensure the mixture is spread across the entire tin, leaving no corner empty. Place in the freezer to set for 1 hour.

 

CACAO FROSTING:

1 cup Medjool Dates, pitted

¼ cup Cacao Powder

¼ cup Coconut Oil

¾ cup of Water

Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender until all of the ingredients have combined, creating a fluffy texture. Wait until the brownies have been in the freezer for the hour before lathering the frosting on top. Once the frosting has been placed onto the brownies you can eat them whenever you wish! I would recommend leaving it for another hour or 2 or overnight (if you can resist the temptation😉)
