Healthy Raw Raspberry Dessert Brownies Recipe 

Yield: Makes 10 servings | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: Leave in fridge overnight

Ingredients: Three quarter cup of raw almonds | a cup of dates | quarter cup of sugar-free cocoa powder | a pinch of salt | pure vanilla extract | a cup of fresh raspberries | two tablespoons of raw honey | one and half tablespoons of chia seeds.

Procedure: To prepare this healthy raspberry dessert, line a loaf pan with a parchment paper. Process the almonds in a food processor until it’s finely ground. Pour the almonds into a bowl and process the dates in the food processor until they’re completely broken up. If you process the dates long enough, it will turn into dough.

Using a knife, break up the dough and sprinkle the almonds back into the food processor together with vanilla extract, salt and cocoa powder. Have the mixture processed until combined. Squeeze a bit of the mixture together using your fingers – if the mixture holds, then you’re done. But if it doesn’t hold, then have it processed a little bit longer. Pour the mixture into the already prepared loaf pan and press it down evenly.

Now, lightly mash the raspberries in a bowl and stir in chia seeds and honey or your preferred sweetener. Pour the mixture over the brownies, cover, and then have them refrigerated overnight. Remember to slice the brownies before serving.

Enjoy!
