This is an unusual twist, on two recipes I really like. There is nothing more indulging than a warm brownie combined with a hot almond milk on a rainy day. Yet a rich and creamy fudge piece can make me happy within minutes.
Well why not combining these two textures I thought, and making raw chocolate Brownie fudge slices!
The nuts in the chocolate-brownie base add a nice little crunch to it, the coconut cream is flavoured with cacao and pure coconut oil.
A combination you should not miss! The recipe is so simple and totally bulletproof.
1/3 cup processed buckwheat flour
1/3 cup raw unsweetened cacao powder
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup shredded coconut
12 dates, pitted
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp warm water
a pinch of fine sea salt
1/2 tbs vanilla extract
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
1/4 cup carob powder
8 oz dark chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the bottom, simply blend the walnuts in a food processor (process as long as you think you want the size of nut pieces to be), add the dates and shredded coconut, the melted coconut oil, water, sea salt, cacao powder, flour & vanilla extract and process again until sticky and well combined.(Yes, you can use your hands :))
Press the mixture into a square/rectangle tin, firm and flat (I used a pancake flipper to press it down evenly and tightly)
Leave in freezer while making the next layer.
Scrap 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 :))
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.
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.
