Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place pecans alone in your food processor and process until the pecans become small and crumbly.
  • 2. Add dates to the raw brownie recipe and process again until the mixture sticks together and the dates are well processed.
  • 3. Add the remaining ingredients to this raw brownie recipe and process again until the mixture turns a lovely dark chocolatey brown. Stop processing before it gets too buttery. (There should still be air between the small bits so that you will be able to press them down into your brownie pan.)
  • 4. Dump the mixture into a brownie dish or small cake pan and press down firmly using your clean hands.
  • 5. Refrigerate this raw brownie recipe for a couple of hours. You do not have to refrigerate it, but it is much easier to slice when chilled. By the way, this is actually a raw brownie recipe that keeps its shape! So it can be good for serving to non-raw fooders because the presentation of this raw brownie recipe is good when chilled.
  • 6. Store this raw brownie recipe in the refrigerator if it lasts that long!
  • PS: For an even more delightful brownie, serve it with this easy, instant raw chocolate icing.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw brownie recipe -- finally, a raw brownie recipe that tastes like REAL BROWNIES!

I am quite surprised and amazed at how the texture of this raw brownie recipe resembles real brownies--especially after this raw brownie recipe is refrigerated for about an hour or even longer.

My husband thinks this raw brownie recipe needs chocolate icing, but I disagree. I think it's perfect on its own! (But it is true, everything is better with raw chocolate icing on it.)

You can also use this raw brownie recipe as a pie crust or as very chocolately raw truffles.

Good luck trying to keep this raw brownie recipe around for longer than 24 hours. This vegan recipe would be good for about eight small servings. Feel free to double the recipe if you want more or if you want to make it last longer. (I usually double it.)

Advanced optional tip: Throw 1 tablespoon cacao nibs into the mixture after processing and before squishing into pan for fun crunchy texture!

I've got a question, and I'm sorry if you've covered this somewhere else but I'm looking for advice. I do not have a food processor and I'm wanting to get one for some of these recipes (I have a Ninja 6-blade blender so I'm thinking that wouldn't work for things like brownies or other drier blend-ups). What size processor should I be looking at? I think 2 cups is obviously too small, but I wonder if the 10-cup ones are too big for making recipes like yours.

So, what's an ideal starter size for a food processor?

Thanks! Love, love, love your website. I saw a girl buying almond milk at the store and wound up giving her your website after telling her it's cheaper to make it (especially if you use things like almond flour or want some fun recipes for the raw pulp). She immediately took out her phone and went to your website to check it out. :-)

Made these today---took about 5 minutes and they were delicious. I could not have believed how satisfying they were--my curiosity got the best of me, and it was worth it! I am an avid cook and really looking forward to making more. Delving into soups for tomorrow--starting with carrots because that is what I have on hand.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Marlena! Have you had a chance to make the icing yet too? It's easy, and really takes the flavor to the next level.

I certainly did make the icing and it was the perfect compliment to the raw brownie recipe. I served both at a dinner party this evening with fresh strawberries and cherries and my friend was literally licking the dish. It was a huge success. Thank you so much for bringing this to us.

Made these today with my boys. They loved them and so did I. I didn't have enough walnuts so did half walnuts half almonds, also didn't have enough dates so just did half dates half raisins as that's what I had. Tasted great, will definitely try more raw recipes. Thank you!

You won't regret it, MA! It's a bit pricey, but a little goes a long way and it stays good in your pantry for ages.

I made a batch of these last night-wow! it's almost like fudge, rich smooth and chocolatey. I'm just getting into raw recipes and get excited every time I try a new one. This is something I will make again, I only need a small piece to satisfy my chocolate craving. Thanks!

Hey laura, I figured shredded coconut is coconut flour, but it isn't, right? Its more like little flakes? Couln't really tell from the brownie Video.

Hey Chris,

Shredded coconut and coconut flour are two different things. Related, but not the same :)

First of all, coconut flour has had a lot of the fat removed from it (they use the fat for other purposes). The coconut flour is the leftovers from that, it's kinda like coconut "flour" literally, it's super light-weight and flour-like. (Like the flour you might bake a loaf of bread with.) You can buy "coconut flour" labeled as "coconut flour" in the health food aisle at my grocery store in Canada. It's harder to find.

Shredded coconut has a lot more fat in it - it's dried coconut shredded up, and has all of the fat in it. It's usually sold in the baking aisle.

Hope this helps!

Hi Katja!

This recipe pretty much needs nuts, but you will probably enjoy my nut-free categories:
