Raw Mint Brownies

I’m a sucker for anything chocolate + mint (OMG, hide those Girl Scouts’ Thin Mints from me!!), so I wanted to try a healthy version of the combination

(from Bee’s Knees Kitchen)

I followed the recipe:

    1 c Carob or Cacao Powder
1 c Almond Flour
1/2 tsp Vanilla Powder
Pinch Himalayan Salt
1/4 c Fresh Mint, chopped
1/4 c Agave Nectar
1/2 c Filtered Water
1/2 c Dates, chopped

In a bowl blend the carob/cacao powder, almond flour, vanilla powder and salt and set aside.  Using a personal blender, blend the mint, agave, and water until the mint is completely liquified.  Add the dates and blend until completely smooth.  Mix the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients with a spatula.  Empty onto a dehydrator sheet and smooth out to a square shape of about 1/2 inch thickness.  Dehydrate overnight or for 10-12 hours.  Flip onto a cutting board and square the edges off.  Cut into 1 inch squares and dehydrate for 2 more hours.

It’s very rich. It has a hint of mint taste to it. I followed the recipe, but next time, I would probably double the mint because I love a strong mint flavor. It was good to snack on.
