Seven and one half!

When I wrote last weekend I was tired and didn't add the brownie recipe. Since it's a perennial favorite at the clinic on IPT days, when we get a sweet treat to bring our blood sugar back up, I said I'd send it, so here it is:

An Oasis of Healing's Raw Vegan Chocolate Brownies

3 cups walnuts, previously soaked overnight and dehydrated (this eliminates enzyme inhibitors)
6-8 dates, seeded and soaked 10 minutes or longer. Save the soak water.
1/2 cup raw organic cacao or cocoa powder

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until mixture forms a ball. If the mixture is too dry and not forming a ball, add some of the date water until it does.

Place mixture in a 9" pie pan and spread level with an offset spatula.


1/4 cup raw organic cacao or cocoa powder
1-2 tablespoons coconut oil
1-2 tablespoons agave syrup

Place all ingredients in an bowl and whisk until creamy and smooth. Spread smoothly over the top of the brownies. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.

Serves 8

These are very rich and a small piece is satisfying.
