Raw Vegan Brownies

Raw Walnut Brownies

These raw brownies are absolutely delicious. This is a super easy recipe that you can make and be ready to eat in 15 minutes. I remember making cooked brownies and hating to have to wait for 50 minutes to let it cool. Sometimes I didn't wait and they fell apart trying to get them out of the pan. With this recipe you can eat them right away! Make a double batch! You wont' be sorry 🙂

What are alternatives for those with nut allergies?

Nuts can be a problem. You can use seeds such as sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Also try using buckwheat. I have been experimenting with different things myself. Will post a recipe once I get one I really like.

Hi Ama,
One variation on this recipe is that I used cashes vice walnuts.
