RAW Brownie On Royal Grounds

January 3, 2012 § Leave a comment

In response to the last few weeks´famed “Buttercrisis!” in Norway (..Is that even a word?!..), this could be a RAW, and in my view, healthier, and let alone tastier alternative to the low-carb/high-fat diet that so many Norwegians have gotten themselves in on, and one of the reasons to the current shortage of butter from animal origin in the country; a RAW Brownie With Lucuma -“Caramel”- Icing and Shredded Coconut–concoction. No butter needed!

It may not be all that low in carbohydrates, as the cake is loaded with dates and coconut oil, but then these are natural sweeteners, not refined…Which is always a good thing…:) And yes; loaded with good fatty acids from Cashews, Almonds and Coconut Oil. High fat or low fat, high in carbs or low in carbs, good or bad; it´s just cake..! And it tastes good…Endulge yourself. Meet. Cake.

For the cake:

  • 2 cups of RAW, unsalted almonds, roughly chopped in a blender (or by hand)
  • approx. 5 cups pitted dates
  • 2 cups Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Cacao Powder
  • 2 dl.Coconut Oil
  • some cold water (if you´re not using Medjool Dates)
  • a good pinch of Sea Salt

Put all the ingredients except for the chopped almonds in a good blender, and blend until you have a fairly smooth Cocoa-Date-paste (should be sticky and real heavy). Then remove the paste from the container and over into a bowl, toss the almonds in as well, and use you´re hands to blend it all well together. “Pour” the paste for the cake over into a plastic-wrapped brownie form, and use your hands to distribute the paste evenly across the form.

For the Lucuma-Caramel Frosting:
(adapted from Caroline Fibæk´s “Raw Kager” Cookbook)
  • 2 large tablespoons of Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Lucuma Powder
  • 4 dl.of RAW, unsalted cashews (soaked over night)
  • approx. 2 dl.water
  • 4 dl. pitted dates
  • 1/2 teaspoon of good-quality vanilla powder (optional)
  • a good pinch of Sea Salt

Put all the ingredients into a good blender, and blend until completely smooth. Pour the frosting over the brownie-paste, and sprinkle with plenty of shredded coconut.
