You’re going to love this: a glossy, chocolate, gooey caramel, and chewy brownie. Rest assured this goodness is raw, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, sugar-free, and still a knock-your-socks-off kind of chocolaty dessert.
- 2 1/2 cups walnuts
- 3 cups dates
- 1/2 cup raw cacao
Method: Blend dry ingredients in food processor until crumbly. Add dates a few at a time and continue blending until gooey and chewy. Press evenly into a square baking tin lined with baking paper.
Salted Caramel layer Ingredients
- 1/2 cup pure coconut cream
- 1/2 cup dates or 8 large Medjool dates
- 1 tbs vanilla
- 1 tsp Maldon sea salt flakes
Method: Blend all ingredients in the small bowl of your food processor until creamy. Pour onto the chocolate base.
Chocolate topping Ingredients
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
- 3 tbs coconut cream
Method: Mix the oil and cacao in a bowl first. Then add the cream and maple syrup. The maple cause the chocolate to seize a little. This is useful so it becomes firm. Spread the chocolate over the caramel with the back of a spoon or a palette knife. Refrigerate until set. Slice into squares.
