Raw Brownies


1 cup pecans (you can use walnuts in a pinch)

1 cup dates

5 tablespoons raw cacao (cocoa) powder

4 tablespoons shredded unsweetened coconut

2 tablespoons hone

1/4 teaspoon sea salt


 Place pecans in your food processor and process until they become small and crumbly.  Add dates and process again until the mixture sticks together and the dates are well processed.  Add the remaining ingredients and process again until the mixture turns a dark chocolatey brown. Stop processing before it gets too buttery. (There should still be air between the small bits so that you will be able to press them down into your brownie pan.)  Dump the mixture into a brownie dish or small cake pan and press down firmly using your clean hands.

Refrigerate this raw brownie recipe for a couple of hours. You do not have to refrigerate it, but it's easier to slice when chilled.  Store in the refrigerator (if you don't eat it all in one sitting!
