Raw Fudge Brownie Treats

Ever since Thanksgiving I have been on a serious sugar binge which is just so eww, so instead of making a banana cream pie (sounds so effin good right now) for my neighborhood holiday potluck I decided to try this schnazzy recipe I came up with.  And oh my,  these healthy little balls of deliciousness are just heavenly.  They taste a little healthy but really pack in a good rich chocolatey punch.  Just an FYI, I will probably be doing more raw food recipes for the next couple weeks to gear up for my raw food/juice fast cleanse I am planning for the beginning of January.  Don't worry though, I am totally not one of those raw foodie freaks who claim that they love the taste of raw kale (eww and double eww!).

Anyways... this recipe is super duper easy and only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish if you skip shaping them into cute little donut hole looking things which I only did for potluck convenience.  These are perfect little treats for those with a sweet tooth who are trying to keep it healthy, so give them a whirl and let me know what you think.

2 cups raw walnuts
12 dates pitted
1/2 cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
shredded coconut (optional)

1.  Place walnuts in a food processor until a smooth powder forms then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until well mixed.  Press walnut mixture into a small greased pan, 8x8 would probably work or form into donut holes and viola, raw fudge brownie treats.  Store in refrigerator until ready to eat.

Note: You can probably shape these puppies into just about anything, next time I think I will steal one of my sisters mini-cupcake pans (that bitch has like five of them anyways, like who needs that many mini cupcake pans?!), press the walnut mixture into mini-cupcakes and make a frosting out of avocado, cocoa powder and agave to top them off with.


  1. Awesome. I've been meaning to look for & make a recipe like this.. and it's pretty appropriate now since I've also been on a major sugar/chocolate kick. Definitely going to try these out soon.

  2. I love your recipes! I actually whipped these up the other night but added some cinnamon agave nectar, pumpkin pie spice & dipped the results in chocolate! They're so yummy frozen! Thank you so much for posting this <3
