Sarah Britton’s The Raw from My New Roots blog
INGREDIENTS
2 cups raw walnuts or pecans
apx 30 (2 1/2 cups) Medjool , pitted
1 cup raw cacao or cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup raw unsalted almonds, roughly chopped

DIRECTIONS
Place walnuts in food processor and blend until they are fine crumbs, about 15 seconds. Add the cacao and salt. With the machine running add the dates one at a time through the feed tube. Pulse a few more times and your mixture should start clump around the blade. Taste. Adjust for salt. The mixture should press into a ball. If not, add a few more dates.

Press into an 8” parchment lined pan or mold. Place in freezer for 1 hour or refrigerate until ready to serve. They are easier to cut these when they are very cold. If you’re feeling fancy, dust with more cocoa. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

      +MegaMetinMetin Ha ha ha. The Q is, whose did you watch first 😉

  4. Butch Crawford on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    I’m cracking up about how visibly excited you are about your brownies.
    Clearly they are the best thing in the universe! I’m headed to Trader
    Joe’s, right now, to get all of the ingredients. I may add some chopped up
    dried apricots and or dried cranberries along with the raw almonds at the
    end. Cheers! This, like ALL of your videos, is very well thought out and
    put together. Thanks for taking the time to share something that is
    meaningful to you.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      +Butch Crawford They are so delicious with dried cherries or candied orange
      peel, hazelnuts….mmmm. I’m very excited to share these with you. Happy
      brownie making.

  5. ArtisanTony on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    This looks good!

    • Elizabeth or Beth “Elizabeth” DeRoos on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      +ArtisanTony She is a foodie like I and others are. And I love that she
      is so into organic, non gmo, vegan/vegetarian and an overall healthy, fit,
      non violent lifestyle.
      And I love how she explains things like 70% cocoa not processed with
      alkali, or the different types of vegans to her viewers who may not know
      these facts.

    • ArtisanTony on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      +Elizabeth or Beth DeRoos me too 🙂

  6. greenlovingmom on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    Hot dang, I can’t wait to try these!! ;)

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      +greenlovingmom You need these pronto!

  7. Don Foster on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    Yum! Did I mention “Yum”? Oh, by the way -YUM!

  8. Tenspeed TheBikeHanger on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    mmmm Delicious and nutritious, that is a win!

  9. Goldstar 36 on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    I am going to call you Princess Delicious. I am soo glad for the last
    couple of videos offering a lentil pilaf, and these glorious brownies. As a
    closet chocoholic, people tell me that I cant just eat a few chocolate
    raisins. They are popped like pop balls in my mouth. Now Each square of
    these fantabuous brownies, will go a very long healthy way and satisfy
    without overeating. I would love to spread the word for Fourth of July
    offerings

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      +Goldstar 36 You can call me Princess Delicious. I like that. Chocolate
      raisins are one of my favorites. Crazy good combo. I love that I can eat
      these w/o a stitch of guilt. And soo good. What are you doing for the 4th?
      I might need to get a potato salad recipe up. I have a good one.

  10. ArtisanTony on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    What is the food processor you use? Thanks!

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      +ArtisanTony I put links to what I use in the videos, under the video,
      along with the full recipe.

    • ArtisanTony on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      +FRESH PRINCESS Oh, thanks! I am looking for more healthy snacks as I am
      trying to lose weight. Thanks!

  11. paul august on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    This was amazing! I so enjoy your recipe videos but more so because of the
    educational content. I watch and watch them and am so in awe of how much I
    really don’t know about food…something so vital to us all.

    Thank you for cleaning your sink 😛

    Awful lot of bananas on the counter…just where is that monkey?!!! :)

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      +paul august What monkey?

    • paul august on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      You really think I will fall for your monkey in the middle game?..

      Curious. I am more the 60’s, 70’s generation. Will those ingredients work
      with this recipe? 😛

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      Yes, all pre 80’s medjool dates and cocoa powder will work…but preferably
      NOT the ingredients FROM before 2010. The shelf life of organic foods
      aren’t what you’re used to.

  12. C. Perry on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    loved the video recipe …… very nice young lady.

    Thanks, Stay Safe !!!

      +C. Perry Thanks Cutes.

  13. michelle from down under in bundy on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    Yum they look delishers i must try make some but with macadameiur

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      +michelle from down under in bundy Oh now you’ve gone and made me jealous.

  14. Rickugg on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    Hello: I was just thinking of you. I had Pinto Beans, Coleslaw with Betty
    Crocker BacOs dated Sept. 07. They have been in the Refrigerator since I
    got them, still smell ok. I know a little old. Last week I made Coleslaw
    Pea salad with 30 year old sugar. To the Brownies, just be glad I wasn’t
    around when you finished making them. lol I know you would gave me some.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      BacOs are vegan! The irony. Not sure what they are, but apparently they’re
      like plastic and refined sugar, lasts indefinitely. If you were here, I’d
      sneak out and go clean your refrigerator!

  15. Toni MacTavish on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

    Know you enjoyed your trip, but really enjoy your recipes in your home
    kitchen. Look forward to each vlog..

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 20, 2015: (Reply)

      That’s great. Thanks.

  16. 02pwrstrk on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    you made me want a snack before bed again. kettle corn is so delisious!

  17. Joe Serrano on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    Alas,….and finally somebody who tells ya CHOCOLATE IS GOOD FOR
    YOU,…LOL….and so COOL that it’s the FRESH P saying so! I was thinking
    raw brownies,…ah, no flour, eggs, baking in the oven, just processing the
    nuts with the dates and the cocoa powder or the raw cacao powder, add some
    chopped almonds and you’re set! Almonds, dark chocolate and dried cherries,
    you’ve just made me remember a yummy chocolate snack sold at Costco, clumps
    of almonds, dried cherries covered in a rich, decadent dark chocolate, each
    time i enjoyed a cluster i thought this is SINFUL, no more, thanks to you
    my beautiful buddy! :)

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      Chocolate IS good for you…sugar, not so much. But know it’s half good
      accounts for something. ❤️

  18. Greg Berry on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    Ok sold me on healthy brownies, now what about cheesecake or key lime pie?
    Great video I’m going to try this!
    

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      I’m not a cheesecake fan so you’re on your own there. Key lime? The best I
      can do is suggest that you use real cream or creme fraiche in lieu of
      condensed milk. That’s healthier.

    • Greg Berry on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      Thanks FP
      Going to try your Chilaquiles this weekend!

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      Yes! Remember to just toss them in the sauce then plate. Keeps me crunchy!
      Happy cooking.

  19. Beecozz7 on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    Very inspiring, you make me want to cook! You make food art! TY

  20. Michael Wilson on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    Chalk this up as another reason why I need a food processor

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      I didn’t have one for years. My parents got me one as s gift and now I
      can’t do without it. I’m even getting a mini chopper for the camper. The
      cheep ones are cheep and just fill up the landfill (I’ve has a KA and a
      Cuisinart). The plastic parts break. This one is mid range and has been
      good for two years running. Robot Coup is a reputable brand, but time will
      tell.

    • Michael Wilson on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      +FRESH PRINCESS Good to know…guess I should start saving my pennys and
      shopping around.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      I really need to learn how to spell cheap. Oy.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      PS: I ABUSE kitchen equipment. I’m on my 4th or 5th KA stand mixer. So take
      that with a bit of history.

    • Michael Wilson on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      I am rough on kitchen equipment also so that is good to know. one of the
      worse mistakes I made was buying a ninja blender. It had a hard time when I
      made posole

  21. Graveltrucking on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    Walnuts is one thing I have trouble digesting not sure why. The woman in
    the picture staring at your audience is a little creepy lol.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      +Graveltrucking I painted her GT, go easy with your comments.

  22. Nick Pelkey on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    I’ll let the comments fly soon enough on this one. 

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      Getting some rest first?

    • Nick Pelkey on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      Sometimes I take advantage of the house being quiet and am up quite late.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      I like quiet houses too. Early morning is my favorite. Tea, no noise, the
      birds and sun. Awww. Have a peaceful day Nick. (For some reason calling you
      Nick seems weird.)

    • Nick Pelkey on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      It has implications in other languages and other nasty connotations (Nick).
      Also likely goes against your excellence in keeping good boundaries. But
      whatev.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      Laughing. I think it has more to do with your ‘dudeness’.

  23. onebadboy2 on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    Scrumptious. Thanks!

    I love dates, cocoa, and nuts, so how could that possibly not be a hit?
    [Rhetorical question]

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      I read an article the other day buy a grammar lover who wants to introduce
      new punctuation mark, such as the rhetorical mark, not a question per se,
      but a mark to denote the exception. What do you think?

  25. Jarastlad on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    Hello Fresh P., it’s interesting to hear about that “fat is bad”
    generation. The big food companies introduced that idea to introduce “fat
    free” products … which were full of sugar. Fats are important, in proper
    amounts of course. Sugar is important too but we should consume it with
    caution and reduce the processed sugar intake as much as we can. Go for
    honey and fruits (but I don’t have to tell you that ^^). Cocoa powder’s
    very good, I always enjoy making bitter hot chocolates during long winters
    in Belgium (land of chocolate). So yes Good chocolate (those with the
    biggest amount of cocoa powder is great !

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      The food biz responded to govt regulations, they weren’t responsible for
      the regulations. If you’re interested there’s an interesting book about the
      policy and science behind it called Good Calorie, Bad Calorie.

    • Jarastlad on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      +FRESH PRINCESS When I’m done with Thoreau (Walden), why not ! I’ll have a
      look. Thanks for the all the videos by the way (for a minute I forgot my
      manners ^^)

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      You’re welcome. It’s really a fascinating book.

  26. mrsgomezfhl on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    Would this be an appropriate snack for someone with diabetes? Any
    recommendations for baking for someone with diabetes? 

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      I wouldn’t recommend eating sugars, processed flours or any carbs that are
      converted to sugar in the blood. Dates are very high in sugar, but also
      fiber. Fiber mitigates the insulin response in the body. But if I were
      diabetic or insulin sensitive I would completely eliminate foods that are
      or will convert to blood glucose. You’ll have to research hoe dates effect
      blood glucose to know for sure. Good luck.

  27. Gail Campbell on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    Sounds like it would be fun to try. Thanks for sharing.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      You are welcome.

    I seem to recall a chocolate shake…..

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      Most of our actions are beyond consciousness. Well, I’m personally working
      on being more conscious, but I do have an affinity to BOTh black and white.
      Without darkness you cannot…

    • Nick Pelkey on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      Back to my …”darkness from a loving place…” comment.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      No.

    • Nick Pelkey on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      I might have to assist in informing your interpretation of that statement.
      A little cognitive behavioral and mindfulness goes a long way.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      Yes it does. But like chocolate brownies, more is better.

  29. Michael Herrick on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

    No refined sugar!!!!
    I am now a fan forever. Thanks for the inspiration and the knowledge you
    share.

    • FRESH PRINCESS on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      Nada. You’re welcome. Sugar is fun in a cake for a celebration, but my body
      doesn’t like it.

    • Michael Herrick on May 21, 2015: (Reply)

      +FRESH PRINCESS For various reasons I have to omit refined sugar from my
      diet. The New Roots book has a lot of answers to some difficult dietary
      questions.
      Thanks again.
