Raw Chocolate Brownies - a delicious mid-rehearsal snack!

TABLA's Inara Suri always has something healthy and delicious to share during rehearsals and between workshops. One of our favourites is this raw chocolate brownie recipe, and we're not alone! I know the dancers at the last Bahar Bayram enjoyed these treats as much as we all do. Not only do they taste delicious, but they also ease your PMS! Apparently, it's all that raw cacao, goji berries and brazi nuts! 




Preparation Time10 minutes
Equipment Required: Food processorSpoonBowl

1/2 cup of dates
1/2 cup of raisins
1/2 cup of almonds
1/2 cup of Brazil nuts
1/2 cup of cacao powder
1/2 cup of honey, rapadura or coconut palm sugar (optional. the mixture might be sweet enough)
1/2 cup of goji berries
1/4 tsp star anise (optional but it adds a nice liquorice flavour.)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)

1. Simply blend all of the ingredients in the food processor until well mixed.
2. If you prefer, you can add in the goji berries at the last minute so that you still have some texture to the brownie.
3. Taste the mixture, if you would like a more chocolatey flavour, add a little more cacao powder. If you would like it sweeter, add a touch more honey or sugar.
4. Shape in to the desired shape, such as squares or balls.
