I really want to thank everyone who has been leaving such wonderful comments!
I am so humbled by such kind words, it makes me feel so good, like I am not alone in my little raw food world..hehe!
The raw vegan holiday cookie of the week...
Raw Cherry-Hemp Brownie
2 cups walnuts
½ cup soft dates
½ cup dried cherries
¼ cup hemp seeds
2 tablespoons coconut oil
½ teaspoon cherry extract
¼ cup cocoa powder
1. Process all ingredients in food processor fitted with “S” blade until mixture holds together.
2. Shape into rounds or pear shapes for Rudolf:) I made about 1 dozen.
3. Chill while making frosting.
Raw Chocolate Frosting
¼ cup coconut oil, room temp
¼ cup grated cacao butter, 2 tablespoons melted measure
1 tablespoon agave
1 tablespoon cacao powder
Melt cacao butter over hot water in small bowl. Let cool about 15 min at room temp.
Add coconut oil, agave and cocoa powder.
Mix until well combined. If cacao butter is very warm, and melts coconut oil, allow to stand at room temp until frosting consistency.
This frosting will be soft at room temp, but get hard when chilled.
Decorate frosted brownies as shown using dehydrated raspberries or cherries, almond slices, cut pecans, pumpkin seeds, and currants.
Please forgive the quick post today:) Holiday Hugs to all!!!
