Keeping with the healthy halloween treats from last week, this is one of my favorite raw dessert recipes. Most likely because of the all hallows eve, cemetery feel it’s got going on. Oh, and the bananas. Yum!
This is the perfect type of recipe to make with kids. It’s made with whole foods, has a lot less sugar than commercial brownies, and it’s really fun to decorate together!
Making Your Own Raw Brownie Cemetery
In a high-speed blender or food processor put equal parts dates and walnuts and add 2 to 3 tablespoons Raw Chocolate Powder. Feel free to spice it up by adding a little bit of mint extract or vanilla into the mix.
Blend well and watch as the ingredients form into dough. Once the chocolatey dough is ready, push into the bottom of a pie or brownie plate.
Decorating Your Raw Brownies
It’s time to get creative!
To create some tombstones, slice the two ends of a peeled banana into thin tombstone shapes. To have them stand up, make small indentations in the “earth” and place these tombstones standing up.
To create a fall-time tree, stick a grape stem into the dough. The benefit of this is that you get to munch on some yummy grapes while you make this dessert. That, and you get a tree without leaves… perfect!
Now let’s add some pumpkins. Use the skin from a tangerine or orange and roll it up into several balls to create little pumpkins. Or you could use the left overs from making your orange bell pepper jack-o-lanterns!
Eat this brownie graveyard with a spoon and knife or just let your guests wonder at how you made this using nothing but wholesome foods.
Now it’s your turn… what have you got planned for All Hollows Eve? Any yummy treats brewing in your cauldron?
