Ingredients

Brownie Batter:

  • 2 cups raw walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups medjool dates, pitted. Do NOT buy already pitted dates
  • 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Peanut Carmel Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup coconut nectar
  • 1/2 cup medjool dates, pitted. Do NOT buy already pitted dates
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2/3 cup chopped peanuts

Chocolate Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup coconut nectar
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder

Instructions

  • To make brownie batter: Process all ingredients in a food processor with an S-blade for 2-3 minutes, until well-blended. Separate the dough in 2 parts. Place one part in a small pan and push down with your hands. The dough should be about 1/2 inch thick.
  • To make peanut caramel sauce: Blend coconut nectar, dates, coconut oil, vanilla and salt in a high-speed blender until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and mix in chopped peanuts.
  • To make chocolate sauce: Mix ingredients with a fork in a small bowl for about 2 minutes, until well-blended.

  • Place peanut caramel sauce on top. Cover with the remaining brownie batter. Pat down with your hands to solidify and refrigerate to set. Cut in serving pieces and drizzle with chocolate sauce when ready to serve.

    Not a review but these looked good, was thinking of making them & I could not find nutritional info so I input it to my calculator. 882 calories EACH for ONE of 6 servings with 52% of those calories from fat! 51 grams of fat, 102 grams of carbs with 73 of that as sugars. Yes, it does have 13 grams each of fiber and protein and high amounts of some minerals (e.g. – copper, iron, phosphorus & magnesium) and other good nutrients including omegas but the omega 6:omega 3 ratio is still 5:1. This is NOT healthy food. Is the number of servings wrong? Is it supposed to be 20-24 servings instead of 6? That is the only way this could ever even be feasible as part of a healthy diet. Love your magazine but really wish you’d give full nutrition data on the recipes you recommend. As you can see, this one sounds great from the write up, looks like it would be delicious but for me, one of those 6 servings would be more than 70% of my daily calories and way out of line for fat and glycemic load boundaries as well. Wow.
