Raw Vegan Fig Brownies

This is actually my first post on the blog! And I decided to start with a recipe. These Raw Vegan Fig Brownie Bites is a recipe I created when my husband and I first started our journey to eating more plant-based and trying out raw vegan recipes. It’s a great recipe to make for parties or potlucks. Perfect for those that are Vegetarian, Non-vegetarian, Vegan, Raw vegan, you name it, I promise you they will all love this recipe.

My family loved these raw fig brownies and they were completely surprised when I told them it was a raw vegan recipe.  My husband said it reminded him of the fig newtons he enjoyed so much growing up. I hope you enjoy and share them with your family & friends!

One of my favorite things about this recipe is the raw cacao powder, it really gives this recipe that chocolatey goodness.

Cacao Powder also is a great source of antioxidants and has more than any food tested, including blueberries, red wine, and green teas. It’s been known to help to fight cancer, heart disease and aging through its antioxidant boosting effect. 

Cacao beans offer iron and calcium and are particularly rich in magnesium.  Cacao may also provide antidepressant benefits since it contains phenethylamine, which is a neurotransmitter found in the brain that acts as a mood elevator and natural endorphin booster.  Despite all of the possible benefits, cocoa does contain caffeine, which may have negative effects, such as insomnia, on caffeine-sensitive individuals.  Eat-in moderation.

Raw Vegan Fig Brownies

Brownie Dough 2 cup dehydrated figs 2 cup walnuts (optional) 2 cup organic dates ½ cup cacao powder ¼ cup shredded coconut Combine all ingredients into a food processor. Blend until a dough-like consistency. Place the shredded coconut into your brownie dish and level out. Then add dough to the dish and begin to press out evenly. Set in refrigerator until topping is ready. Tip: the shredded coconut is not necessary. It does help to prevent the dough from sticking but with or without it tastes great.
