MEXICAN BROWNIES

Ingredients

  • 3 cups walnuts*
  • 1 cup pecans + extra for garnish *
  • ½ cup Goodies’ Cacao & Maca Blend*
  • ¼ cup mesquite powder*
  • 14 medjool dates, pitted *
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract*

  • Pinch Himalayan salt*

  • 1/8 cup dried cranberries*
  • 300g Loving Earth Mylk chocolate (we sell this in bulk!) *

*We sell these ingredients

Method

  • Process the walnuts, pecans, cacao & maca blend, mesquite powder, vanilla, cayenne & salt in a food processer until a breadcrumb-like texture is achieved. DO NOT OVER-BLEND (too much oil will be released by the nuts & you’ll end up with an oily mess!) Add the dates & process, briefly, until the mixture combines. Again, don’t process for too long, you don’t want a wet mixture.
  • Firmly press mixture into a baking tray lined with plastic wrap. Sprinkle cacao nibs & cranberries on top.
  • To make the chocolate layer, simply melt the Loving Earth chocolate in a double boiler. Pour chocolate over the brownie mixture & spread out evenly. Place extra pecans in rows over the chocolate layer & let the brownies set in the fridge or freezer. Cut into squares & store in the fridge.
