Valentines Day recipe: Raw Berry Cream Brownies

Valentines-Day-recipeHappy valentines day lovelies. I thought I’d so something different and post a yummy recipe just in time for Valentines Day. My boy and I love our sweet treats but lately we’ve been experimenting with raw desserts. Here’s one we love that I whipped up today (for my beloved). Hope you all have a lovely Valentines day.

Raw Berry Cream Brownies: (Adapted from Practically Raw Desserts)

Brownies:
2 tsp Water
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 cup Maple syrup OR Agave nectar (I used half of each)
1 cup Unsweetened apple purée
2/3 cup Raw cacao powder
2/3 cup Coconut flour
2/3 cup Almond flour/blanched ground almonds
Pinch of salt

Note: you may need more of the dry ingredients if your mixture is too wet.

Berry Cream:
1 cup Mixed frozen berries, defrosted (You can use fresh if in season)
3/4 cup Cashews (soaked, rinsed and drained)
1 Tbsp Maple syrup
1 tsp Lemon juice
Pinch of salt

Method

  1. Line a small baking tin or container with parchment paper. I used a 5 1/2” by 3” cake tin
  2. Combine water through to apple purée and process in a food processor. In a separate bowl stir together the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the food processor and process again until all the ingredients and mixed.
  3. Spread the thick mixture into the lined tin and smooth out the top. Refrigerate in the freezer.
  4. For the berry cream, blend tall the ingredients.
  5. Pour the berry cream on top of the brownie and freeze for an hour or so. Remove the brownie from the container and cut into pieces.
  6. Store in the fridge or freezer. The topping will melt if left as room temperature.

Makes 12

Enjoy!
