Servings: 16 servings
Raw Brownie Crust
- 1 ½ cup raw almonds
- 1 ½ cup raw pecans
- 3 tablespoons cacao powder (unsweetened cocoa powder will also work, but won't be raw)
- ¼ cup flaxmeal
- 12-15 pitted Medjool dates (soaked for 15-20 minutes if they aren't soft)
- 1-2 tablespoon(s) water (if needed)
For the Raw Brownie Crust:
Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper so the ends hang over the sides (I like to spray the bottom of the pan before I place the parchment paper so it sticks to the bottoms and doesn't move around while you spread the dough) and set aside.
Place almonds and pecans in a food processor and pulse until a flour-like consistency.
Add the cacao powder and flaxmeal and pulse a few times to combine.
Add the dates and process until the mixture comes together into a sticky ball. Add 1-2 tbsp water if needed, to reach this consistency.
Press the dough evenly into the pan and place in the freezer while you make the mint cream.
For the Mint Cream:
Place the coconut cream, brown rice syrup, vanilla and mint extracts and the Oriya Organics Superfood Protein Medley in a medium mixing bowl and whisk until smooth. Add 1-2 tbsp of organic powdered sugar if you want it a bit sweeter.
Pour the Mint Cream over the Raw Brownie Crust and place in the freezer to set. It should be firm enough in a couple of hours. Pull the whole 8x8 square out by the parchment paper "handles". Cut into squares and enjoy!
~Store leftovers in the freezer
~For best texture, if its been in the freezer for a long time, let it defrost on the counter for 10-15 minutes to soften a bit (though it is delicious straight from the freezer as well!)
