Everyone who knows me can vouch for my obsession with my raw brownies, I’m totally addicted! They’re just amazing, and taste absolutely divine. However, these heavenly flavours aren’t really the main reason why I’m so in love them – it’s the fact that they only take 3 minutes to make and require absolutely no effort whatsoever. I have to admit though that since they’re so easy and I’m so addicted I’ve definitely eaten a lifetimes worth in the past year! I was about to make them for the trillionth time a few weeks ago when I stopped myself and decided that I should really be a little more inventive and branch out a little to find another 3 minute treat, so I did and these little bowls of insanely creamy, totally chocolatey goodness were the result. Definitely a lesson in why I should branch out more!
I just can’t tell you how awesome these are. I made six pots in my first batch thinking I’d stock of on a week’s worth of treats end guess what… I ate them all in a row! Pot by pot. They were just too good, I simply could not resist. The combination of banana and avocado creates the creamiest consistency that just melts-in-your-mouth, which is enhanced the the almond butter’s nutty goodness. The avocado’s savoury nature is totally masked though by the sweet, caramel-esq nature of the medjool dates and the deeply rich, smooth cacao powder. Trust me on this one, it’s amazing even if it sounds a little weird!
– 2 really ripe bananas
– 1 ripe avocado
– 6 medjool dates
– 4 tablespoons of water
– 2 heaped teaspoons of almond butter
– 2 heaped teaspoons of raw cacao powder
– a little sweetener (I like maple syrup)
– a teaspoon of hemp protein powder
– a sprinkling of chia seeds
– a sprinkling of flax seeds
Simply put all the ingredients into a food processor – pit the dates first though – then blend into a smooth delicious mixture.
A blender will work for this but a food processor is a lot easier and quicker!
Keep chilled in the fridge until you’re ready to enjoy!
