I made these raspberry raw brownies at our Shine Yoga retreat in Cornwall last weekend for a healthy afternoon tea treat and all the retreat yogis loved them. And shh don’t tell anyone but they are really simple to make. They also last really well in the fridge or freezer so you can eat them every day for a week.

Raspberry Raw Brownies Recipe
Makes 15 Brownies
For the brownies:
2 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tbsp date nectar
1 tsp vanilla essence
150g frozen raspberries
For the ganache:
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp raw cacao powder
1 tbsp maple syrup
In a food processor blend the dates, pecans, cacao powder, vanilla and date nectar until the mixture sticks together in one big ball. If it looks too crumbly add more date nectar.
Press the brownie mix into a container about 6 x 4 inches (I use a plastic tuperware tub) lined with baking paper.
Push the frozen raspberries down in to the brownie mix, evenly distributing them throughout, then put the mix back in the freezer.
Make the ganache by melting the coconut oil in a small saucepan on a low heat then stirring in cocoa powder and maple syrup.
Remove the brownie from the freezer and pour over the ganache. Spread it all over the brownie. Return to the freezer.
When you are ready to serve remove from the freezer. Run a sharp knife in hot water and cut the brownie into squares. Allow them to sit for 10 minutes to warm slightly.
Store the raspberry raw brownies in the fridge.
Have you made these brownies? Or eaten them on a Shine Yoga retreat with me? Use the comment box below and let me know what you think!
- Unlike a lot of raw brownie recipes it’s not necessary to use Medjool dates for this recipe just regular dates will work fine.
- Be aware that different brands of cacao powders vary in strength and flavour a lot so try your brownie mix and ganache when you make it and if it’s not chocolatey enough add more cacao until it is!
- It’s important that you use frozen raspberries in this recipe as fresh ones will fall apart when you try and push them in to the brownie mix.
