raw pecan peanut brownies

I am in love with these little gooey raw brownies and I’m sure you will love them too. These have a pecan chocolate brownie layer which is topped with a chocolate peanut butter ganache. 

I promise you won’t miss baked brownies once you taste these.

Ingredients (makes 12)

  • 150g pecans
  • 260g dates, pitted
  • 1tsp coconut oil
  • 1 heaped tbsp cacao powder
  • 1.5 tbsp water
  • handful of peanuts (salted or plain)

For the ‘ganache’ layer

  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder 
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil 

What you need to do;

Using a food processor pulse all the pecans until blitzed to a chunky powder. Then add in the dates, coconut oil, cacao and water and process until it all comes together. It should start to clump together.

Empty the mixture out into a lined square tin and smooth it out with a spatula or back of a spoon. Set this in the fridge while you make the topping.

To make the ganache simply place all the ingredients in a pan on a medium heat. Whisk until everything is melted and comes together to form a smooth and glossy ganache. Pour this over the brownie layer, smooth and sprinkle with the peanuts. Put the whole thing back in the fridge to set for 2 hours before cutting up into 12 squares.
