Equipment

  • Blender or food mixer
  • 9" brownie pan, lined
  • Spatula

Ingredients

For the Raw Brownies

  • 1 cup Almonds soaked in water for at least an hour
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 2 cups Dates stoned and soaked in hot water
  • ½ cup Cacao or Cocoa Powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil warmed
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt

For the Tahini Miso Icing

  • ¼ cup hot Water
  • 1 tablespoon Miso Paste
  • ¼ cup Date Syrup (or Maple Syrup)
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk canned
  • 1 tablespoon Tahini Paste

Instructions

To make the Raw Brownies

  • Drain the soaked almonds, but reserve some of the liquid. You may need to add a little a bit later.
  • Place in a blender or food processor along with the drained dates, pecans, vanilla extract, coconut oil, salt and cacao powder. Blend until you have a thick paste. You will need to periodically scrape the bowl down as this mixture is VERY thick.
  • You may find that the mixture gets "stuck" in the blender, if so, add a little of your soaking water, just to get it going again.
  • Once the mixture is fully amalgamated, scrape out into your prepared brownie pan and smooth out. Chill for an hour or so.
  • Once thoroughly cool, using a sharp knife, cut into small squares. You can now ice them, or keep them chilled in the fridge for 5 days. You can also freeze them, in a ziplock bag for about a month.

To make the Tahini Miso Icing

  • Dissolve the Miso paste in the water, in a small saucepan.
  • Add all the other ingredients and lightly whisk to combine.
  • Break gently to a boil, and let simmer until your icing starts to thicken.
  • Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely.
  • Pour over your raw brownies, or serve as a sauce over them, if you prefer.
