Chocolate Superfood Brownies…oh my!

You MUST try these brownies. I know there are about a million raw brownie recipes out there but these are just so rich and delicious…not to mention that they’re packed with so many nutrient dense Superfoods. Most raw brownie recipes call for dates, walnut and cacao powder (and that’s the extent of it). These contain caramelly, protein rich White Mulberries, chlorophyl-packed Green Hemp Seed meal and glacial water fed Hunza Raisins…and of course our superstar Cacao Powder and Paste 🙂 Moist, chewey and rich, these are a seriously upgraded brownie experience….and no need to save them for dessert, these make an awesome breakfast, pre-workout snack or mid-afternoon pick me up.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Superfood Brownies

1 c Pecans

1/2 c White Mulberries

3/4 c Hunza Raisins

4 T Cacao Powder

2 T Lucuma Powder

2 T honey

4 T Green Hemp Seed Meal

4 T (2.5 oz) Cacao Paste, melted

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp Vanilla Powder

Grind Pecans, White Mulberries, Green Hemp Seed meal, salt and Vanilla in food processor until you get a fine crumb. Add the Hunzas, Cacao Powder, Lucuma Powder and honey and process again until well incorporated. Add the melted Cacao Paste last and grind again. The batter will still look crumbly but should stick together when you pinch it. Remove batter to a pan or a piece of wax paper and shape into a square by pressing down the top and packing in the sides. Place another piece of wax paper over the top and smooth out with a rolling pin or the back of a knife. Score your brownie square into desired pieces with a knife and place in the fridge to chill. Remove from the fridge for a few minutes to soften slightly before serving (this will give the center a fudgier consistency). Dust with Cacao Powder or Lucuma Powder and serve 🙂

  1. For those of us allergic to nuts, can we just leave the pecans out or should we substitute with something esle? Has anyone tried a variant w/o nuts? thx

  2. Hi Tori,
    A combination of chia seeds and coconut flakes would work well (if you can do both or either of those). You can also try mixing in some ground flax. Alternatively, you can increase the mulberries and green hemp seed meal and just leave out the honey…hard to go wrong with any of those 🙂 Enjoy!
