treat of the week

My new culinary guru is Sarah Britton. Her blog is just what every single one of us need or might expect from a food blog. Photos are stunning, food is excellent and most of all it is innovative and healthy. As she puts it, every recipe is life changing, and I agree. 
So here goes The Raw Brownie. Far from being healthy the normal option just makes you feel so unwell after. This one is guilt free, hah, it is all good for you. And very simple to make if you have a blender.
I didn't.

So the method is:

2 cups whole walnuts
2 ½ cups dates, pitted (and check for it!)
1 cup raw cacao ( I used half of it as I want the kids to eat it)
1 cup raw unsalted almonds, roughly chopped
¼ tsp. sea salt

Put it all in a blender give it a whizz (except almonds). I soaked my dates beforehand for few hours as they were bit on the dry side. Then combine all, place it in a shallow dish, spread evenly and put in a fridge until it sets. Cut into squares, sprinkle with cacao.
So that's my Valentine dish.
