In a recent Instagram Story I shared with you a photo of Raw Chocolate & Goji Brownies which sparked quite a lot of interest and many of you asking for the recipe... Unfortunately this recipe is not my own and is from the fantastic Hip & Healthy ebook written by sisters Sadie Reid & Sasika Gregson- Williams... Thankfully though the lovely ladies at H&H have kindly allowed me to share the recipe with you all!!
The H&H Raw Chocolate & Goji Berry Brownies are absouelty heavenly and a recipe I've been whipping up for my dance bag for years. They are quick to make and packed full of energising goodness, combining the key essentials of crabs, protein and healthy fats. Something that Sadie and Sasika also note is that these brownies are perfect for athletes as they "didn’t bloat but instead gave them a boost just when they needed it."
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup almonds
1 cup dates
8 tbsp cacao powder
3 tbsp goji berries
2 tbsp desiccated coconut
Start by blending the pecans and almonds until fine.
Add the dates, cacao, goji berries, coconut and continue to blend until a dough like ball forms in your blender.
To Hip & Healthy chef - when blending things like crunchy nuts and sticky dried fruit, things can get a wedged under the blade so you may find yourself de-wedging the mixture every now and again before you carry on blending.
Spoon out the mixture into a small try or form into bars sized to your preference.
Refrigerate until ready to munch. Makes 8 Brownies
