Recipe Directions

Chocolate Brownie: Put all the ingredients in a Vita-Mix or very high powered blender (you’ll need it). Blend until smooth. Place batter on 1 or 2 teflex sheets and spread 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Dehyrate for 24 – 36 hours. (Half way through remove from teflex sheet (carefully)). It will still be a little soft. Move to parchment or wax paper & place in the refrigerator to firm a little before going to assembly step.
Vanilla Filling:

  • 1/2 c. cashews or macadamia nuts (soaked for 4+ hrs)
  • 1/2 c. coconut meat (of young coconut)
  • 2-3 T. coconut water/juice (from young coconut)
  • 1/4 c. light agave nectar
  • 1/4 c. coconut oil
  • 1 T. vanilla extract pinch of sea salt

The Vanilla Filling is a very slight alteration from the Vanilla Cream recipe in the “Raw Food, Real World” cookbook. Place all the ingredients in a Vita-Mix or high powered blender (again, you’ll need the horse power to really blend this). Chill in the refrigerator.
Assembly: With the Brownie flats on wax or parchment paper, spread the vanilla filling thinly on top. Carefully roll the brownie and wrap in parchment/wax paper and freeze. Before you are ready to eat, take it out of the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Cut into bite-sized pieces. Refreeze whatever you don’t eat.

Laurao's Thoughts

I’m actually still in the process of perfecting this, but here is what I started with and it is already a family favorite. This is best kept in the freezer and has a nice soft/crunchy texture to it. The hardest part about this recipe (besides needing the right equipment) is not eating all the brownie batter while waiting for it to dry! I barely had any left to make this piece you see here because of my nibbling! (So I actually doubled the original recipe that I made. I hope it turns out the same.) If you don’t want to go through the trouble of making and assembling this with the vanilla cream, it also makes great brownies (an try putting jungle peanuts on top!) Yum!

Hi Laurao! Wow this looks SO yummy! I don't have Goji Powder on hand right now, so I was wondering, is there a substitute for that I can use? Or just not use it at all?
Thanks!

Thank you so much for this recipe! I am always looking for something new to try out since my husband and I love desserts which we actually treat as food because they are. They are a full meal. I made this today in the morning, by the afternoon it was ready and I put it in the freezer. It was delicious! I did made some modifications for those of you wondering in case you do not have all ingredients. I used dates in place of the yakon and mapple syrup. Dates are solid so I added the corresponding amount of almond milk (you can mix the dates with almond syrup to get the same measurement as in the recipe for the liquid sweetening). I did not have cacaonips, so I used almond/walnut meal), and 1 tsp lucuma poder instead of goji powder. I did not have cacao butter and coconut oil, so I used coconut butter for both using the same measurements. For the almond butter, I used almonds and a bit almond milk with dates so great the butter myself. No water, but almond milk. I worked perfectly. Thanks again.....

What is cacao butter and goji powder? Is cacao butter the same thing as coco butter? Do I sound completely ignorant right now? Hahaha...Sorry but I'm kinda new to some of the more obscure ingredients in raw cooking. Also, will cashew butter work in place of almond butter?

I bet you can use agave. It might taste a little different, but very yummy none-the-less! Let me know how it comes out.

Do you think you can make this with all agave instead of the other liquids? I don't care for maple syrup and i cannot find Yacon Syrup.

Yep! I didn't have the intention of making a mock-healthy-version of a traditional treat (but much tastier). But it seems this will be a crowd-pleaser of even non-raw-foodies ;) Enjoy!
