Jason Wrobel’s Raw Superfood Fudge Brownies

  • Superfood Brownie Mix
  • 8 cups raw pecans, soaked for 8 hours & dehydrated for 24 hours, until crisp
  • 1 1⁄2 cups dates, pitted & packed
  • 1 1⁄2 cups raw cacao powder
  • 1⁄2 Tbsp Vitamineral Green or other green superfood powder
  • 1⁄2 Tbsp maca powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp Himalayan Crystal Salt or Celtic sea salt
  • 1⁄4 tsp shilajit powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 cup dried goji berries, reserved
  • 1 tsp ground vanilla powder
  • 1 cup crushed raw pecans, reserved
  • Warm Fudge Sauce
  • 2 3⁄4 cups clear raw agave nectar, coconut palm nectar or Jerusalem Artichoke inulin
  • 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1 1⁄4 cup extra-virgin raw coconut oil
  • 1⁄4 cup raw cacao butter
  • 1⁄4 cup mesquite powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp Himalayan Crystal Salt or Celtic sea salt
  1. Before starting the mixture, coat the baking dish with a small amount of coconut oil. NOTE: in a standard 11-cup food processor, you will have to split this recipe in HALF and do (2) separate half-batches to complete the full recipe amount listed above.
  2. For the brownies:
  3. In a large mixing bowl, soak the pecans for a minimum of 8 hours.
  4. Drain the water, rinse the pecans in fresh water and use your Excalibur dehydrator to dehydrate on teflex sheets for 24 hours, until crisp and dry to the touch.
  5. In a large food processor, pulse the pecans into medium-size crumbs, until mealy. Be sure not to over process, as the pecans can break down easily and become pecan butter.
  6. Add the dates slowly into the mixture and process until very well combined. The mixture should be somewhat cakey – a slightly moist batter with a little texture.
  7. Add the raw cacao powder, Vitamineral Green, maca, sea salt and shilajit powder and process.
  8. Once ready, the mixture should begin to “ball up” in the food processor as the raw cacao powder becomes well incorporated.
  9. Take the brownie mix out of the processor bowl and add to the baking dish.
  10. Spread the mixture evenly into the baking dish and fold in the reserved pecans and dried cherries. Mix with your hands. Press with even, medium pressure to make a flat, even distribution of the batter.
  11. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to 1 hour to set the brownie batter.
  12. Once set, cut the brownies to the size you desire.
  13. If you want warm brownies, place them in the Excalibur dehydrator at 118 degrees for 20 minutes to warm.
  14. For the fudge sauce:
  15. Add the agave nectar and coconut oil to your Vitamix and blend until very smooth.
  16. Add the remaining ingredients, EXCEPT the cacao butter, and blend again.
  17. Once an ultra-smooth consistency is attained, add the cacao butter (either solid of liquefied) and blend again.
  18. Place in the Excalibur dehydrator at 105 degrees for 10 minutes before serving with the Superfood Brownies.
  19. Yields 16-20 medium brownies (Standard 9x13 baking dish)
  20. Recipe Variations:
  21. Instead of dried goji berries, try golden berries, mulberries or black cherries for an extra superfood nutrient kick OR substitute dried organic pineapple or mango for tropical tango brownies. Experiment and play, baby!

Tips!

Neatly cutting brownies and slices

Cutting the perfect square pieces of brownies and slices and getting them to look perfect without breaks and crumbs can be challenging. A quick easy way to “slice slices” is to use a plastic knife that glides through and doesn’t collect the crumbs.

Ohhh Emmmm Geeeeee!!!  These brownies WILL be happening at my house this afternoon.  A sweet raw, vegan treat I can feel good about serving my family - what’s there not to love?!

Thank you Tess & Jason for this recipe!  I’m loving this month-long Excalibur event & all my friends at Raw Food Rehab are too!!
