Who doesn’t love a brownie? (Seriously, who? We want to talk to them.) But a brownie recipe doesn’t have to be bad for you. Especially when it contains superfoods like organic greens, loaded with healthy vitamins and minerals. Yumm.
Don’t believe us? Just give this brownie recipe a try. It features our very own mustHave greens, which are loaded with healthy goodness from alfalfa and oat grass, kale, spirulina and chlorella.
While these are not your traditional flour-based baked brownies, they’re brownies through and through—make no mistake about it! The nuts stand-in for flour, giving you a healthy fat source, plus protein and fiber. The dates give the brownies a natural sweetness, no sugar needed. And hemp seeds add more healthy fat and protein, while the mustHave greens enhance the richness of the cacao powder with a good-for-you boost that will give you energy without the crash of a regular brownie.
Superfood Brownie Recipe
Makes about 12-14 pieces
4 cups soaked nuts such as pecans, walnuts or hazelnuts
½ cup pitted dates
½ cup shredded coconut
¾ cup cacao powder
2 teaspoons mustHave greens
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch sea salt
Oil an 8x8 baking dish or line with parchment paper.
In a food processor, add nuts and pulse until crumbly, then add in dates. Pulse until mixed with nuts and then add remaining ingredients, until evenly combined. The mixture should be sticky and smooth.
Spread into the baking dish, firmly pushing down into the corners and edges of the pan. If desired, you can sprinkle with a few more crushed nuts (you can reserve a few spoonfuls out of your mixture), a little bit of shredded coconut or save the hempseeds and sprinkle those atop the brownies.
Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving.
