These are the easiest brownies ever! Okay, they’re not going to be the gooey, fudgy, super chocolatey ones you get when they come straight out of the oven, but they’re a really delicious raw alternative. They’re also vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free. AND they only take five minutes to make!
You could play with these a bit and add in some extras if you wish. I’ve made a basic batch but things such as cacao nibs or some nuts and seeds could enhance them as well. I made mine with a 100% organic cocoa powder as I had run out of raw cacao but you could easily use either or. I would start with one tablespoon if using raw cacao and add more to your liking.
I like to pop these in the freezer for about an hour and then take them out for a few minutes before serving. This recipe doesn’t make too many but they’re pretty rich and moreish and you could always double the recipe if you’d like a few more.
