Raw Double Chocolate Brownie Bars

I started this baking endeavor only wanting a single layer brownie, that’s healthy, clean, raw, made with whole foods and ya know, all of that good stuff. 🙂

Then, I thought to myself, “Self? What if you put chocolate on your chocolate? A brownie layer and then a creamy decadent layer on top?” Self, you have some fantastic ideas sometimes. And that’s how it happened. The rest is history…

INGREDIENTS

First Layer:

1 Cup Almonds

1 Cup Cashews

1 Cup Soft Dates (Soak in water for 20 minutes if they aren’t soft)

5 Tbsp Carob Powder

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

1-2 Tbsp Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk

Second Layer:

1 Ripe Banana Mashed

1/2 Cup Natural Peanut Butter (or Almond Butter for Paleo Diet)

1 Cup Soft Dates

5 Tbsp Carob Powder

1/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond Milk

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

DIRECTIONS

Place all the nuts from the crust ingredients into the food processor and process until fine. Add remaining ingredients. Press crust into 9×9 in. pan (greased with coconut oil) OPTION: For a crunchy bottom layer, bake for 7-8 minutes at 375. Let cook while you make your second layer.

Mix all ingredients for second layer in the food processor and process until you have a thick pudding like consistency. Pour over the bottom later and let set in freezer for at least 3 hours or overnight. Makes 15!
