Heathy, Raw, GlutenFree, High Protein No Chocolate Brownies!

I’ve been seeing a few recipes for raw brownies floating around and each time I see them thinking…. “I really must try these out”. Last Monday morning was the time, for some reason I woke up full of cooking inspiration and whislt the toddler ate her porridge I knocked these up – they literally took that little time to make.

I was pleasantly suprised with the result and took them round to my friend Steph to try. They really are a chocolate substitute! Very rich, very nutty but gooey and satisfying.

  2. Press into a greased, lined, small baking tray, I used a small round cake tin.
  3. Mix the remaining ngredients together to make the topping and spoon over the base layer.
  4. Freeze for 30 minutes, cut into small squares (you really don’t need much of this).
  5. Eat and refreeze or fridge what you don’t eat.

    I like the idea of healthier baking. Will have to give these a try but will use golden syrup instead of honey when making these for my vegan friend 🙂

    Hi, these look different! Can you leave out the nut butter (ie fat)/? Are they really that nice? xxx

      They actually are nice, though I find them quite rich. 1 tsp at a time is enough for me, but I’m not that into rich food. I don’t think they would work without the nut butter, I guess coconut oil may work.
