When we just need chocolate, here is a good way to calm down frustration. The clue for success here is the quality of the dates and of cocoa powder.
Done in 20 minutes without baking, another good idea of Detoxinista slightly adapted.
Brownies: 1,5 cup pitted dates, 1 cup almond meal, 6 tbsp cocoa powder, salt, vanilla powder, 2 tbsp water. Frosting: 3 tbsp cocoa powder, 3 tbsp raw honey, 2 tbsp almond butter, 2 tbsp coconut oil.
In the big bowl of your food processor, put all the “brownies” ingredients and switch on your food processor on maximum speed. The consistency of your mixture will depend on the quality and type of your dates. Adjust with water as you wish to obtain a sticky mixture when you press with fingers. Line a loaf pan with parchment. Transfer the mixture in the pan and press well equally. Reserve the pan in the freezer while you prepare the frosting.
In a small bowl, mix well all the “frosting” ingredients.
Remove the pan from the freezer and spread the frosting on the brownies mixture. Replace in the freezer of another 20 minutes. And it’s ready to taste!
Cut it in squares and keep in the fridge as long as you can ….
