So this post belongs to all the brownie lovers, who love baked, ooey gooey butter, all purpose flour, eggs loaded brownies. I just discovered that brownies can be healthy too and that too without all those ingredients I mentioned. How ? so read this post and you will know. I made this from dates and almonds and cashews, you can make vegan ganache on top with coconut oil , almond milk and dark chocolate but I didn't had patience to wait for that so just made brownies and still feel satisfied. This will be ready in no time so its very convenient too. So here you go with the recipe.
2 cups pitted dates
1 1/2 cups walnuts, pecans
1/2 cup Cashews
4 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tsp. water
1/8 tsp salt
Combine dates, nuts, cocoa, vanilla , water and salt in food processor.
Process until smooth, scarping down the sides. Now its up to you, you want smooth or little crunch, I like little crunch so I didn't make smooth paste. It will form a bowl, looks like it need more liquid but don't add any extra water.
Lightly spray or grease 8 inch baking pan or line the pan with parchment / wax paper.
Transfer the dough to pan and press very firmly so it's evenly distributed in pan.
Leave it in fridge for hour or so, take it and cut it and enjoy,
If you have patience you can make ganache for this and when its cooling , spread it on top and leave it for 1/2 hour more and then enjoy.
