When you want a brownie, you want it now. Am I right? What if I told you that you could make a batch of scrumptious, chocolatey, decadent brownies in under 10 minutes? Sounds good so far…. Well what if I also told you those ooey gooey brownies were actually healthy!
By now I’m sure you’ve heard that chocolate is good for you (3 cheers for antioxidants!). But the health benefits pretty much cancel out the minute you mix it with sugar (e.g. chocolate chips, chocolate bars, chocolate cakes, etc.). So although cacao it self is healthy, chocolate products… not so much.
Enter raw cacao powder. And this recipe. 5 ingredients, superfoods, no sugar. The combination is pure chocolate indulgence. Can you handle it?

In a food processor, process walnuts to a coarse flour.
Add dates, cacao powder, and salt and process until a moist, crumb-like dough has formed.
Spread mixture evenly into an 8″ x 8″ pan. Sprinkle with cacao nibs and press firmly into a solid brownie layer.
Cut, serve, and enjoy!
