Recipe Type: Dessert
Author: Chef Alina Z.
Serves: 6
    Brownie Batter
    • 2 cups raw walnuts
    • 1.5 cups medjool dates, pitted. Do NOT buy already pitted dates
    • 1 cup raw cacao powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    Peanut Caramel 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
    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. To make chocolate sauce: Mix ingredients with a fork in a small bowl for about 2 minutes, until well-blended.
    4. 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.
