This recipe makes quite a bit, no small batch! But if like me, you have a hungry Teen and Toddler combo, the brownies will disappear fast. Btw, if you have Trader Joe’s nearby, they are carrying a chunky raw almond butter that is amazing tasting.
- 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted and packed tightly
- 1¼ cups raw almond butter, chunky and unsalted
- 1¼ cups cocoa powder
- 1/3 cup honey, preferably raw
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/8 tsp fine sea salt
Process the dates in a food processor until they are paste. Add the remaining ingredients and process on high until pulling together.
Line a 8×8″ pan with plastic wrap, add the mix in and pack down with a spatula. Fold over the plastic wrap and use it to press down more.
Refrigerate for a couple of hours before cutting to firm up. Store tightly covered in the refrigerator.
Makes 1 trays, I cut ours into 20 bars.
