4 ingredients is all you need to make these Raw Walnut Brownies. They’re gluten-free, vegan, paleo and refined-sugar-free but still taste incredible! Plus they take just 5 minutes to whip up.It’s been far too long since I’ve teamed up with my blogging ladies to give you the best of the best in healthy recipes. We’ve been at this for over 2 years and it’s been fun and challenging to try and make these monthly round-ups happen.
We love each other, this community and bringing you guys delicious meals, but as we’ve grown personally and professionally, trying to get a date on the calendar between 6 busy people has been interesting.
You guys should see our conversations trying to sort out dates. There’s literally one day each month when we can all post and it needs to be decided like 2 months in advance. Even then, some of us have to skip out every now and then because of a posting conflict. Those of you who think bloggers aren’t busy should take a look at some of these convos!
Needless-to-say even we needed a round-up that included easy, simple recipes that don’t require a lot of time. NO-BAKE TO THE RESCUE!
This recipe for Raw Walnut Brownies actually came out of another recipe I developed for Avocados from Mexico. It was part of the crust of a no-bake cheesecake I made and even though I could eat like 15 of them at once, I kept finding myself going for the crust first.
Not surprisingly, cacao powder, walnuts, dates and sea salt make for a seriously delicious treat that literally takes 5 mins to make. The only downside being that they take 5 mins to make and therefore dessert has become all-too accessible.
What? You don’t consider a food appliance to be a best friend? Try any of these recipes and you will understand what I mean.Print
