Recipe for Vegan GF Cookie Crumb Brownies


Several years ago my husband went off to Honduras to help build a church school as a volunteer.  I missed him.

I had been eating lots of dopamine-producing foods and honestly had not had any cravings for sweets.

And suddenly... well, I invented the most delicious unbaked (not all the ingredients are "raw") brownies that smelled like oreo cookies when I took the top off the food processor.  I will try not to eat the whole pan myself, although that will be hard.  Here is the recipe, but I suggest that you jiggle around with the ingredients to get the exact taste that you want... it's not hard, just put
You could, for example, try a little oatmeal for the dehydrated buckwheat crispies (although I think that would be a shame, really, because they give it the 'cookie crumb' texture-- maybe you could try rice crispies?)

Melt about 1 T. of extra virgin coconut oil in a dish over hot water.

Grind up about 1/2 C. of Buckwheat Crispies into a flour using a coffee bean grinder or a vitamix.

Add the above to a food processor along with:

  • 1/2 C. organic Cocoa powder
  • 1/4 C. Walnut Pieces
  • 1/2 C. Shredded Coconut
  • 8-12 soft Dates without pits
  • 1/4 C. organic Peanut Butter
  • Shot of Vanilla extract (your call)

1.Pulse until all combined... batter will be a little sticky but still fairly much of a cookie crumb texture. If it is too dry in your opinion, just add a little bit more peanut butter or a little almond milk... but not much.

 2. Press it into a small pan (8x8 or smaller) and put into the freezer until it sets (very quickly).

3. I actually cut mine with a pizza cutter before putting it into the freezer for convenience's sake.

4. Tastes very yummy with banana "ice cream" (actually just frozen bananas whirred up in the vitamix with a little vanilla and a couple of ice cubes).
