I have recently become a bit of a fan of baking. There is something satisfying about making a sweet treat from scratch. I came across these unbaked brownies brownies from Chocolate Covered Kate on Pinterest and knew I had to give them a go. I was quite amazed at how easy these delicious unbaked chocolate brownies were to make.
What I use
1 1/2 Cups of Walnuts
2 1/4 of loosely packed Dates
6 Tbsp of Aduna Cacao Powder
1 1/2 of Tate Lyle Maple Syrup
1/4 + 1/8 tsp salt
1/2 of Vanila Extract
1/4 cup Aduna cacao powder
¼ cup Tate Lyle maple syrup
2 tbsp Rapeseed oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
I first placed the Dates, Walnuts, Cacao Powder, 1 1/2 Vanila Extract, the salt and water in a food processor for good few minutes and was left with a nice but dry dough mixture.
After that I pressed the mixture in a silicone baking tray. I used my hands to do this to it is all round even finish.
Then for the chocolate glazing, I combined the maple syrup, the remaining cacao powder, vanilla extract and oil together in a mixing bowl. Once it was all combined and chocolatey I used a spatula and even placed it across the brownie mixture.
I then placed the tray in the fridge for a few hours. You can serve them straight from the fridge or leave them to get to room temperature. Either way, they are fabulous with a cup of tea.
For someone who is not a huge brownie fan, this was an absolute treat. It was indulgent while being packed of healthy nutrition for your body while still being full of chocolate. In fact my father who has more of a sweet tooth said it was quite chocolatey.
If you are fasting during the month of Ramadan this would be perfect to make. As the days are long, the nuts, dates and cacao powder gives your body the slow releasing energy it needs to get you through the day.
