I love simple food! Ok, so this is supposed to be called brownies, but I think it is more like fudge. I got this recipe from a great friend and have made it twice …. in the last week. I haven’t had the guts to add the cocoa, and I haven’t made the icing, but just the brownie/fudge is heavenly. (no cooking and only about 5 minutes of work)
Truth be told, I have this as a treat now instead of a piece of dark chocolate.
Ok, so this is what I do: (I double the original recipe)
2 cups dates (the ones I have are rolled in flour, but it would probably work better with the straight ones)
1 cup coconut (I used 2 cups coconut and no nuts on the first batch and it great too)
1 cup nuts (I used cashews)
Instead of 1/3 cocoa powder I put in lime juice and a bit of cinnamon. Enough lime juice to make the mixture sticky. (add as you mix)
Put all the ingredients into the food processor. (I use my blend tech)
Press the mix into a brownie pan (or another pan that will help it hold it shape)
Put in the fridge for a bit (you can eat it right away, cooling just makes it less sticky and hold form better)
Here is the finished product.
Here is where my friend got the recipe. (this includes the icing and more yummy pictures)
