We Dare You Not To Eat All Of These Coffee Kissed Walnut Brownies When You Make 'Em!

Written by Tara Milhem via The Whole Tara

I can’t find words to describe this blissful combination of dates, cacao, spiced coffee, and walnuts. It’s a soft, yet chewy, chunk of chocolatey goodness that’s too good for some descriptive adjective. If you’re looking for a brownie that tastes better than an actual brownie, then these Coffee Kissed Chocolate Walnut Brownies are the ones for you. They’ll fool you by tasting as unhealthy as ever, while they’re actually one of the healthiest layered brownies out there and are boasting with antioxidants and omegas with a kick of caffeine. YES PLEASE.

I’ll be honest with you and tell you that I’m not really a coffee kind of gal. However, I love to use it in my recipes. The right kind of coffee, which I’ll get to in a sec, adds a sense of richness that takes these brownies to a whole ‘nother level with a burst of caffeine energy. I used Via Bom Dia‘s Cinnamon Chocolate Cacao flavor for it’s subtle addition of cacao nibs and cinnamon spice, but you can choose any flavor to custom tailor your brownies. I truly love this brand, since everything is sourced from small scale farms and there are no sneaky ingredients involved.

COFFEE KISSED CHOCOLATE WALNUT BROWNIES

A raw, vegan, gluten-free brownie recipe that will knock your socks off and give you an energy kick. Make ahead and store in the refrigerator for later. Serve with a scoop of peanut butter or healthy ice cream.

INGREDIENTS

1¼ cup raw walnuts

½ cup hulled hemp seeds

1½ cups pitted dates, soaked to soften

1 cup raw cacao powder, divided

½ tbsp Via Bom Dia Cinnamon Chocolate Cacao ground coffee

1¾ tsp vanilla extract, divided

½ cup coconut oil

¼ cup maple syrup

sea salt

INSTRUCTIONS

1. In a food processor, pulse the walnuts until crumbly. Scoop out ¼ cup of the crumble and reserve for later.

2. Add hemp seeds and dates and process until very sticky and chopped.

3. Add ½ cup cacao powder, 1½ tsp vanilla extract, ¼ tsp salt, and ground coffee and process until well combined.

4. In a parchment lined baking pan scoop the mixture and press until smooth and flat. Layer the pressed mixture with the crumbled walnuts previously set aside, so that you have two layers so far and freeze for 10 minutes.

5. In the meantime, heat a small pot over medium heat and add the coconut oil until melted. Remove from heat and stir in ½ cup cacao powder, maple syrup, ¼ tsp vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt.

6. Remove the mixture from the freezer and drizzle the chocolate over the brownies. Put it back in the freezer until the top hardens, or about 20 minutes.

7. Remove from the freezer and slice into squares. Serve chilled.
