Raw Peppermint Brownies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

These little bundles of joy are high in fat, but beauty fats, as I like to call them. I'm not a fan of high oil content outside of good quality coconut oil and olive oil, and I typically don't like eating lots of nuts at a time .. unless they are high in Omega 3s. So these are a sort of extra treat because I'm making something I wouldn't normally eat AND they are packed with all the good stuff. YES!

Raw Peppermint Brownies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]




For the Brownies:
  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 2 cups dates, soaked and pitted
  • 3 Tbs cacao powder
  • pinch of sea salt

For the Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 2 Tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract


For the Brownies:

  1. Soak the walnuts and dates for about an hour.
  2. Pit and peel the dates.
  3. Add to a food processor*, along with the drained walnuts and cacao and sea salt.
  4.  Pulse until a dough is formed. I let mine run a bit too long and so it was more paste-y, but so delicious still.
  5. In a glass baking dish* lined with parchment paper, press the dough down until an even layer is formed.
  6. Cover and place in the fridge until the frosting is ready.
For the Frosting:
  1. Combine everything in a food processor and process until it is fully incorporated.
  2. Pour the frosting over the brownie and place back in the fridge to set.
  3. I left mine in overnight so it could harden completely.

I am the girl in the Real Raw Kitchen. I'm mostly silly, extremely ambitious, and a Scorpio, which means I'm incredibly passionate about everything. I discovered this lifestyle and immediately fell in love — even became obsessed — and just went into it, full throttle. That's the Scorpio side of me, I guess. The reason I stuck with it is because I started to feel significantly better. Now I hope to connect others to this experience.
