#FlavorfulFriday – Superfood No-Bake Brownies!

#FlavorfulFriday - Superfood No-Bake Brownies | Healthy, Fit & Barefoot!

Happy Friday my healthy friends! I received a wonderful package from Navita’s Naturals a few days ago filled with yummy goodies like: Cacao Powder, Hemp Seed, Chia Seed, Cacao Nibs, Maca Maple Cashews, & Coconut Sugar. I also received Julie Morris’s Superfood Kitchen cookbook, which I was really excited about!

I love using superfoods, but can’t always figure out how to use them or find recipes that use them.  I have been using Navita’s Naturals superfood products for a while now, because they are exceptional quality and have a wide variety of products that you can get in one place.

I saw this recipe for No-Bake Brownies that only has few ingredients and all of which I had on hand, so I was really excited to make these.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup medjool dates, packed and pitted
  • 1/2 cup Cacao Powder
  • Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 1 TBSP to 1/2 cup Cacao Nibs

Directions:

  1. Place walnuts in food processor and blend until turned into a course flour. 
  2. Add in the medjool dates, sea salt and cacao powder and process until a crumb-like dough forms. 
  3. Spread the mixture into a parchment paper lined pan. Like an 8 x 8 pan or a smaller one. I used a smaller one, as I wanted my brownies to be a bit thicker. 
  4. Press the mixture flat with the back of a wooden spoon. 
  5. Sprinkle with Cacao Nibs (and Hemp Seeds, Goji Berries or other superfoods) 
  6. Cut into squares and serve.
  7. Store in a sealed, glass container.

Enjoy!! I topped mine with hemp seeds in addition to the cacao nibs and they are so yummy! These superfood brownies are loaded with antioxidants, omega’s, protein, potassium, fiber, iron, calcium & amino acids. These are a yummy and healthy treat that would be great to take with you to your Holiday parties this year.

Chocolate brownies that you can feel good about eating!

I definitely recommend getting Julie Morris’s Superfood Kitchen cookbook so you can make your own superfood recipes. 

Stay Healthy my Friends!
