No bake desert
No Bake Brownies with wattleseed. Yes please.
Wholefood ingredients that are rich in antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids, PLUS are refined sugar free is a winner in my book. The wattleseed will bring out the rich flavour of the walnuts and give an extra wow factor to the cacao. Wattleseed, nuts and cacao are a match made in heaven!
Not only are these treats punched with flavour, they are healthy.
• 250g medjool dates (-14 dates, measured after pitting // if dry, soak in warm water for 15 minutes, then drain and pat dry)
• 24g organic cacao or cocoa ponder, plus more for rolling
• 30g hemp seeds
• 2 tbsp Wattleseed
• 30g roughly chopped raw walnuts
• 30g almond butter
• Pinch sea salt (use more or less depending on saltiness of nut butter)
• 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
• Add pitted dates, cocoa or cacao powder, hemp seeds, walnuts, almond butter (or other nut/seed butter), salt, wattleseed and vanilla to the food processor or thermomix.
• Pulse until the mixture is well blended and starts to clump together (—so seconds — 1 minute). If it's too dry or crumbly and it doesn't stick together when pressed between two fingers, add more nut butter or pitted dates (just ensure your dates are sticky and fresh, or it will only further dry out the mixture.)
• Scoop out even amounts and gently roll into balls.
• Enjoy immediately as is, or roll in extra cocoa, cacao, or carob powder mixed with a little extra wattleseed for an extra chocolaty exterior. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks, or in the freezer up to 1 month (often longer). Let come close to room temperature before enjoying for best texture
