Tongue Lingers

Yesterday I made two batches of raw mini brownies (coconut, carob, dates, sunflower seeds, coconut oil). The ones on the left are made with the same ingredients - only I added raisins and didn't process the mixture as much - resulting in the graininess. Both versions are very delicious! The taste lingers lightly on the tongue ... hence the name I've given them.

The recipe (for "Raw Brownies") is one I saw from "Alice, Raw Artist":

1 cup dates
1/2 cup dried coconut
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, dry
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons cacao powder

Grind coconut and seeds together, put in the food processor. Add cacao and process. Add dates and a little coconut oil. Press into lined tin and set in fridge. Slice into small squares as it is quite rich.

Yes they're great. I made more today - but rolled them into balls and sprinkled cinammon on them. Even more delish!
