Raw Chocolate Coconut Brownies

OK, so I really enjoyed the raw other raw brownies that I recently blogged about so I tried another version. This recipe, as stated, yielded brownies that were a bit drier and not as chocolately as the other recipe, though I love the addition of the coconut. Therefore, I have noted a few recommended changes to really make these brownies yummy.

1/2 cup raw almonds and/or walnuts (I used a combination)
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 cup Medjool dates, pitted (bump this up to 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup cacao (bump this up to 1/3 to 1/2 depending on how chocolately you want them)
1/4 tsp salt

Place nuts in a food processor and blend on high until they are finely ground. Add the coconut, cacao and salt. Pulse to combine. 

Add the dates one at a time through the feed tube of the food processor while it is running. You should end up with is a mix that appears rather like cake crumbs, but that when pressed, will easily stick together. 

Press the mixture into a lined cake pan or mold. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Store in an airtight container.
