Ingredients

Raw Brownies

  • 2 cups walnuts
  • cup shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
  • 1 ⅓ cups medjool dates (see notes)
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Peanut Salted Caramel

  • 3 tablespoon smooth peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil melted
  • 1 ½ tablespoon maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Instructions

For The Brownies

  • Place walnuts in a food processor and blend until it resembles a course flour.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients for the brownies and blend to combine. The mixture should resemble a sticky paste.
  • Place the brownie batter in a 4"x8" (10cm x 20cm) silicone mould. Alternatively, if you do not have a silicone mould then line a regular mould with parchment paper before adding the batter.
  • Using wet fingers or a silicone spatula, press the surface of the batter until it evenly covers the base of the mould.

For The Peanut Salted Caramel

  • Place all of the ingredients for the salted caramel into a medium bowl and whisk until well combined.

To Assemble

  • Add the salted caramel sauce to the top of the brownie batter, spread out until it is evenly covered, and refrigertae for at least 2 hours, until the caramel is firm.
  • Slice and serve.
  • This will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.

Notes

Mejdool dates are best. These are the bigger, stickier dates (like these ones) and they will give your vegan brownies that great texture you want.
You will find them in little containers or big boxes in the fruit and veggie section of most supermarkets.
They can sometimes be in the cold section with the herbs etc.
If you can't find them you can always sub in some neglet or noor dates, although they will need to be soaked in warm water for 5 minutes and drained before being used.
