Coconut Oil in Clean Eating Magazine

Clean Eating Magazine

 

 In this month’s issue of Clean Eating Magazine, they included a delicious recipe made with coconut oil! The recipe was for Cherry Chocolate Brownies with a Raw Vanilla Chocolate Sauce; my mouth is drooling from just the name. The best thing about this recipe is that it is simple and there is no required baking. It is also gluten-free and vegan-friendly.

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  Cherry Chocolate Brownies

      1/2 cup raw unsalted almonds

      2 tbsp raw unsweetened cocao powder

      1/4 tsp sea salt

      1 tbsp coconut oil

      1 tbsp pure vanilla extract

      1 cup dried unsweetened cherries

   Raw Vanilla Chocolate Sauce

       1 cup pitted Medjool dates, soaked in 1 cup room temperature water for 30 mins

       1/4 cup raw unsweetened cacao powder

       2 tsp pure vanilla extract or seeds of 1/2 vanilla bean

       1 tbsp coconut oil

 

Directions:

    Cherry Chocolate Brownies

  1. In a small food processor, combine almonds, cacao powder and salt; process into small pieces. Add oil and vanilla and process until well combined. Add cherries and process until well combined.
  2. Spoon batter into a 6-inch square container or baking dish, using a spatula to spread evenly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, until set.

    Raw Vanilla Chocolate Sauce 

  1. In a blender or food processor, add dates and soaking water, cacao powder vanilla and coconut oil. Blend until smooth, about 3 minutes.

 

Drizzle the tops of the brownies with the chocolate sauce and serve! This recipe is a thumbs up in my house because I feel like I never have the time to bake any decadent desserts. If you don’t like cherries, try substituting them with a favorite dried fruit of your choice. I think I would choose to add pomegranate to this chocolaty creation. Try making Jen’s Brownies with Peanut Butter Chips for another delicious brownie recipe!
