Hi guys, so first of all a very happy 2017 to you, I don’t know about you one of my resolutions for this year was to eat healthier So I’m going to help you kick start the new year with a healthy recipe for no baked brownies these are raw vegan Sugar-free gluten-free, and definitely not taste free. They are very tasty They’re super delicious super chewy, and I’m really excited to share this recipe with you So let’s get started [in] a high-quality food processor add in [one] [cup] of nuts I’m using a combination of walnuts and almonds But any kind you like would work Also, throw in six tablespoons of raw Cacao Powder or if you don’t have any, cocoa powder works fine One Tablespoon of Chia seeds which have great health benefits But if you can’t get any it’s not required for this recipe also throw in one teaspoon of salt [you] [might] also want to add some Desiccated coconut if you would like then you want to blitz these ingredients together until your result is a deep dark chocolaty sand now toss in 1 cup of packed soft pitted dates [I] don’t [know] exactly what kind these are but if you’re looking for a specific variety I would recommend Medjool If you like dry dates make sure to soak them in boiling hot water for [about] 10 minutes before using Now you want to pulse those ingredients together until you’re left with a [stick] [smash] that comes together in a ball Pour the mixture onto a surface that’s been lined with parchment paper Using your fingers press the dough to form a rectangle or square shape It shouldn’t be too sticky once I’m satisfied with that I also like to press the top about two tablespoons of Roughly chopped almonds because I feel that they give these raw brownies a nice crunch now You can let these brownies chill in the refrigerator and finish there or you can make this beautiful chocolate ganache that goes on top For the ganache frosting you’ll need to melt two tablespoons of coconut oil I like to use an odorless and flavorless variety because I don’t want the ganache to be dominated by a coconut flavor Now added 1 tSp of agave syrup or any other sweetener the quarter teaspoon of vanilla extract and two tablespoons of raw Cacao powder or cocoa powder and just mix these ingredients until they’re nice and smooth if The ganache is too bitter for your liking add a little bit more sweetener [I] like to let the ganache firm Before using so I pop it in the refrigerator for about five to  minutes until it’s nice [and] firm and spreadable it makes it a whole [lot] easier and less messier to work with [dollop] the ganache frosting on top of that raw brownie and just spread it out as evenly as you can for final finish I like to garnish the brownies with some chopped up almonds and Once the ganache is firmed up slightly you are ready to cut in all Those these brownies have ingredients that are totally good for you. They’re very rich so I like to cut them into small pieces Little goes a long way with these brownies now If you store these properly they keep quite well for a long period of time because they don’t have any dairy These raw no baked brownies are fudgy, chewy full of chocolate and just a delicious guilt-free way of satisfying that sugar craving Thank you guys so much for watching as always I really hope you enjoyed learning how to make these no baked chewy brownies if you like this recipe And you want to see some more healthier recipes do let me know in the comments down below.
