I’m having one of those weeks. You know, the ones that are best served just staying in bed, or at the very least, not leaving your house. Yeah, I’m having one of those. I don’t know what it is, but I’ve just been a little out of it the past couple of days. I have banged my toe on various pieces of furniture several times, tripped and almost fell over my own feet in the grocery store, and cut my finger while slicing an apple. Oh, and to top it all off, I spilt coffee ALL over my desk yesterday morning. I sat down to my computer with a hot cup of coffee, still not even fully awake, and reached across my desk to grab my camera. And of course, in true Candace fashion, somehow knocked my coffee over, and watched as my entire desk became a big coffee pond. Thank goodness the only thing that was sitting on the desk that risked getting damaged was my computer, and I used my cat-like reflexes to scoop that up before it got wet. Um, I’m just going to go ahead and say, thank God I’m not a brain surgeon! Sheesh.
Do you know what always makes me feel better when I’m having a week like this? Chocolate. Chocolate is always the answer. And what’s even better? Chocolate in brownie form, HEALTHY brownie form.
Hallelujah, I think the angels are singing.
These brownies only require three ingredients: dates, cacao powder, and walnuts. This is one of the most basic recipes for raw brownies, and you have most likely seen something similar to this all over the internets, but these babies are so good that I couldn’t NOT post them.
They are completely raw, and full of healthy goodness. The walnuts give a great amount of vitamin E and fiber, dates are great for digestion and bone health, and cacao has tons of antioxidants and can even aid in weight loss. Brownies with that many benefits? Count me in.
These sweet little treats are SO simple, and taste like actual fudgy brownies. Oh man, I need to go make another batch.
