Raw "Turtle" Brownies

Okay, so I try not to overdo the nuts. People can go NUTS with the nuts. But sometimes you need a little treat, and this is decadent and rich enough that one small brownie square will do the trick!


3/4 cup walnuts (soaked 8 hours or overnight)
3 dates, pitted
3/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup carob powder
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon honey (optional)

Caramel Topping

4 dates
1/2 cup tahini
1 tablespoon coconut oil


1/4 cup cacao nibs

In a food processor mix all of the brownie ingredients until like a very thick batter. Smooth brownie mix over contents across a small, shallow pan. Clean food processor and blend together ingredients for caramel topping. Coat caramel topping over brownie mix. Top with cacao nibs and refrigerate for at least an hour. Slice into brownie squares and serve!
