My Ugly Raw Brownies


  • 3 TBSP of Raw Cacao Powder
  • 2 ½ Cups of Dates
  • ½ Cup of Raisins
  • 2 Cups of Raw Almonds
  • 1 TBSP of Maple Syrup (or you can use Raw Honey)
  • Cold pressed coconut oil.
  • ¼ TBSP of cinnamon powder.

Put the almonds in a blender and grind them. Do not worry if the result isn’t very fine, coarse is better.

Without using the blender, chop the dates and raisins (it is very important to not use a blender) until the bits are the size of rice grains. Then place the chopped fruit in a bowl.

Add maple syrup and stir until mixed. Then, slowly add the ground almonds and continue stirring. Then, add the raw cacao powder using the same procedure. Keep stirring until the mixture becomes a single larger ball.


It is better to stir using two strong wood spoons, as you stir you occasionally you can use a mashing action as is mashing a potato.

It will take around 15-20 minutes depending on how strong you are.

Roll the ball into a longer roll on a piece of baking paper and smash or compress until become round or square, 0.5 cm thick.

Keep in the fridge for one or two hours.

Raw Cacao Coating:

In a bowl, combine 2 tbsp. of raw cacao, 3 tbsp. of cold pressed coconut oil and ¼ tea spoon of cinnamon powder and mix with a wood spoon until it is a thick crème.

Spread the raw cacao as a layer on top of the brownie and return it to the fridge for 1 hour or so.

Your brownies may look ugly but they will be so yummy!

Enjoy, feel & eat!
