Raw Goji and Walnut Brownies

I really can't believe that it's June already. I'm sure you've read that on countless blogs already or heard people saying it over and over again but it really is crazy how fast this year has gone. It's been wonderful having a bit of good weather in Scotland recently and I am really loving the light mornings and nights.

Since I started this blog, I've aimed to post once a week, sometimes twice if you're lucky, and so far it's been going well. I really want to push myself to create more content though and really put my all into this little space, so I've decided I'm going to set myself a challenge this month of posting twice every week instead of once on Mondays and Thursdays (and might even keep it up going forward if it goes well). I'd love to know what posts are your favourite to read and if there are any posts you would like to see on here so please let me know in the comments!

Anyway, onto the brownies, which I am sure is the reason you are here. This recipe is my first raw brownie one and I am really happy with it. Raw brownies are so easy to make and they taste so good! These ones are quite basic and you probably have most of the ingredients in your cupboards already (apart from maybe the goji berries, but these can be substituted for any dried fruit if you don't have any).

Although this is a raw brownie recipe, I have found that eating them a little warmed is incredible too. They are really good cold but I was intrigued and popped one into the microwave for about 20 seconds before eating it and oh-my-god, it just took it to a whole new level of deliciousness and fudgy brownie gooeyness - just wow. So, if you're not too bothered about eating them raw, I'd recommend trying them warm too.

Raw Goji and Walnut Brownies

You will need (makes around 9 brownies):
10 pitted Medjool dates
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup walnuts
2 tablespoons cacao powder
1/4 cup roughly chopped walnuts
1/4 cup goji berries 

- Put the dates, oats, pecans, 1/2 cup walnuts and cacao powder into a food processor and mix until everything is well combined and the mixture is starting to clump together - you might need to add a little water to get it to this stage, I added around 2 tablespoons as it was mixing. 
- Remove the mixture from the food processor and put into a bowl. 
- Add the 1/4 cup of roughly chopped walnuts along with the goji berries to the brownie mixture and mix well. 
- Line a dish/tray with grease proof paper and then put the mixture into this. Pop into the fridge to set for 2-3 hours before serving. Store any leftover brownies in the fridge.
