Raw Chocolate Mousse Brownie
My love affair with raw treats continues this week and I am sure this slice will impress you. I decided to combine two of my recipes - the base layer of my Raw Peppermint Slice with a top layer of my Easy Chocolate Mousse, and I came up with this Raw Chocolate Mousse Brownie. This slice is pure chocolate heaven and you don't have to feel guilty if you decide to eat an extra piece, which just might happen! This slice in particular is packed full of healthy ingredients, including banana, avocado, medjool dates, raw almonds, coconut oil, cacao powder and raw honey. If you are vegan, you can substitute the honey with organic maple syrup, it will still taste amazing.
- 1 cup 1 cup 1 cup Almonds, Or Macadamias (for the base)
- 0.458 cup 0.458 cup 0.458 cup Raw Cacao Powder, (1/3 cup for the base plus 2 Tbsp for the top)
