Raw orange infused Brownies

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of fine sea salt
  • 2 tbsp of orange zest

  • Optional Fudge layer:
  • 1 can full-fat coconut cream (place the can in the fridge overnight, in order to get the white “creamy” consistency in the can)
  • 3 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • ¼ cup carob powder
  • 8 oz dark chocolate chips
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Blend the nuts in a food processor (not until finely ground but still let this nuts dance in the processor)
  2. Add the dates until you have a sticky mass
  3. Add cacao, agave syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, orange zest and sea salt
  4. Mix again until everything is well combined
  5. You will by now have a very sticky mass that you best smear with your fingers in a silicon baking dish
  6. Put it into the freezer for 1-2 hours.
  7. (add the fudge layer, if you want to)
  8. Scrape the top layer (white, hard texture) above the coconut milk to a medium sized saucepan and bring to a simmer. (drink the remaining coconut milk, the liquid part :))
  9. Add the coconut oil to the saucepan and stir until it melts. Add the carob powder, vanilla extract and the dark chocolate chips and stir until everything is melted.
  10. Pour over the bottom and refrigerate until firm (up to 4 hours) or freeze if you cannot wait with eating and want to them to be ready in 30 minutes.
  11. Remove the tray and cut your brownies as big as you like them.
