You can also add coarsly chopped walnuts for a chunky, nutty brownie.<br><br>
Also, try this recipe frozen; it is quite yummy.

I love this recipe for a (relatively) healthy treat. I use 1 cup walnuts, 12 dates, and 1/3 cup carob. Super easy, and yummy - my partner inhales them.<br><br><br><br>
Oh, and I also add a dash vanilla extract, yum!

Somehow strange for me.<br><br><br><br>
I am not native English speaker and in translation raw and brownie are really contradicting each other. Brownie means that it is baked, how it can be raw?

The English Language can become twisted at times...sorry.<br><br><br><br>
"Brownie" is meant to describe a square, rich chocolate, treat with a thick cake-like texture.<br><br><br><br>
They are traditionally baked in a pan, but the name describes the general flavor and shape of the treat...not the cooking method.

I made this over the weekend. Like Jennifer N, I added a bit of vanilla, but I used cocoa instead of carob powder.<br><br>
They were soooooo good! Even my husband was impressed.

I made it about 5 minutes ago - my first raw vegan dessert ever. Soo good. I was surprised, I gotta say. My boyfriend loves it too. We ate it right out of the blender. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I used almonds instead of walnuts (because I didn't have any) and added some vanilla to it.<br><br><br><br>
DELISH!

Yeah this recipe is awesome. Three ingredents and like 1 minuted to actually make (not counting the freezing time). Raw cacao is the best thing ever!

Although I'm not a raw foodist, I did experiment with raw foodism and came upon a similar type of recipe using raw nut butter, carob powder, dates, honey, and vanilla. I made it into balls so it was more of a truffle dessert than fudge <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">.<br><br><br><br>
I now make a version of this with nut butter (not always raw), cocoa powder, maple syrup, dates or figs, and vanilla. This dessert has literally saved me several times from binging on non-vegan junk food at night.<br><br><br><br>
