It's going DOWN with these bad boys. I know there are a lot of brownie recipes out there but C'MON, MAN. You can never have too many raw vegan love bites ... am I right? I actually don't have a whole lot to say about this recipe. I mean I think the title tells you everything you need to know: peanut butter. fudge. brownies. See?

  • 1 cup cashews
  • 1 cup buckwheat groats
  • 2 cups Medjool dates
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder


  1. To make the base: grind the cashew and buckwheat into flour in a high speed blender. Transfer to a food processor and add the rest of the ingredients. Process until it all starts to stick together. If it's still too crumbly, add more dates or 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or water. Press into the bottom of a 4X2 baking pan or whatever mold/shape you like.
  2. Once it sets a bit, spread on the peanut butter. If your PB is too thick, just whisk in 1 tablespoon of water.
  3. To make the top: stir together the ingredient until smooth. Pour on top of the peanut butter layer and let the whole thing chill in the fridge (pun intended) for a couple hours or ideally overnight so the flavors can get to know each other. Slice and nom!

  1. Hi love it made it the other day, taste recipe, just want to point out that cashews are not raw :0 check out the process to get cashews to this state. all in all love it though. Not sure about cacao powder either I think may need some heat processing to… don\’t quote on that one though.
