Ingredients for Brownie:
2 cups of soaked and rinsed cashews
1 & 1/2 cup of Dates, (medjool dates preferably)
2 cups of Walnuts
2 & 1/2 cups of Cacao powder
3-4 drops of Wild orange doterra essential oil
1/2 to 1 cup of water
1 cup of Palm nectar
1 tbsp of Lucuma
1/2 cup of melted Cacao butter
1/2 teaspoon of salt
Method for Brownies:
Add the walnuts to a food processor and process until they become a consistency that is either of a flour or grainy depending on what you would prefer, eg, a flour consistency will create a more of a fudge brownie where as a a grainy consistency will give the brownies texture!
Add the dates to the food processor and process until the mixture is sticking together.
Blend the soaked and rinsed cashews with the palm nectar until the mixture is smooth and thick. Place into a mixing bowl.
Add to the mixing bowl with the cashew mixture, the cacao powder, the orange essence, the melted cacao butter, the salt, the lucuma and mix to combine well!
Add the walnut and date mixture to the mixing bowl, mix well to combine, perhaps use your hands to massage everything into each other and add water if too dry, to create a cookie dough consistency!
Press mixture down into a large baking tray to be around 1 inch in depth.
Place in the dehydrator at 48 degrees c, for 36 hours. At around 24 hours, flip over onto a Teflex sheet!
