My love affair with raw treats continues this week and I am sure this slice will impress you.
I decided to combine two of my recipes - the base layer of my Raw Peppermint Slice with a top layer of my Easy Chocolate Mousse, and I came up with this Raw Chocolate Mousse Brownie. This slice is pure chocolate heaven and you don't have to feel guilty if you decide to eat an extra piece, which just might happen!
This slice in particular is packed full of healthy ingredients, including banana, avocado, medjool dates, raw almonds, coconut oil, cacao powder and raw honey. If you are vegan, you can substitute the honey with organic maple syrup, it will still taste amazing.
I have been thinking about what raw treats that I could make next. The likely contenders are Raw Vanilla Slice, Raw Coconut Bounty Bars or Raw Banana Cake.
Raw Chocolate Mousse Brownie
1 cup of raw nuts (macadamias or almonds work well)
1/3 cup of cacao powder
3 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
10 medjool dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup raw or organic honey (substitute with organic maple syrup to make it vegan)
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 banana
- 1/8 cup cacao
- Water, as required
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until all the ingredients are well mixed and the nuts are crushed.
Add mixture to a lined tin, smooth out with a spoon and place in the freezer to set.
- Add ingredients, in order of honey, avocado, banana and cacao to a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy. You may need to add some water to help it blend smoothly.
Put back into the freezer and let it set completely (around 1 hour).
Remove from the tin, slice straight away and store in an airtight container in the freezer (as it has the tendency to soften quickly).
