Now to be honest, the first time I tried this recipe, I was pretty doubtful about the success.
Boy, was I surprised. They're great! They taste a lot like fudge and are amazingly good. The first bite is always a bit surprising for some reason, but then I can't stop eating them--yum-o!
I especially like them with fresh strawberries.
Whip some up and enjoy the rewards. :)
Healthy Fudge Brownies
1/2 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup almond milk
1 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped almonds (or walnuts or pecans)
1. Begin by soaking the dates and raisins in the milk for 1/2 hour or so. This will help them chop easier.
2. In food processor, chop dates and raisins until very fine. Pour chopped mixture into a bowl and mix in remaining ingredients.
3. Press into an 8x8, lined with wax paper, glass baking dish. Refrigerate for a few hours.
