Fall is in the air and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It's time for apples, pears, cinnamon, pumpkin, and nutmeg! I've paired a raw chocolate brownie with a pumpkin pie frosting and a drizzle of cinnamon chocolate sauce. They're really good!!
Pumpkin Pie Brownies Makes 16 Brownies 1 cup almonds 1 cup shredded coconut 1 cup pecans 1 cup pitted packed dates 1/2 cup raisins 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon cacao powder 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla bean powder 1 teaspoon water 1/8 teaspoon himalayan salt Grind the almonds and coconut in a food processor into crumbs. Add the raining ingredients and process until they're all ground down and the mixture forms a dough. Press into an 8x8" pan. Set aside.
