Chocolate Almond Brownies

Chocolate_Almond_Brownies_Recipe_001

This was one of the recipes I made very early on when I first got my Vitamix blender, and it’s a really quick and healthy dessert. The only slight problem is, this stuff is quite sticky, so you probably wouldn’t want to eat it if you can’t eat foods that stick to your mouth and teeth.

But they make a really great snack for anywhere!

I personally didn’t put too much sweetener in this. I would recommend that you see how 3 tablespoons of raisins go, and only add if you really need more.

Chocolate Almond Brownies

3/4-1 cup instant old fashioned oats
1/3 cup roasted unsalted almonds
3 tablespoons raisins
2 tablespoon cacao powder
2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons coconut or almond milk
1 tablespoon chia seed

Start off with adding 3/4 cup of instant old fashioned oats into the blender, along with the almonds, raisins, cacao powder, olive oil, coconut/almond milk and chia seeds.

Blend on high speed until it becomes sticky. Have a taste, if you feel that the mixture is too wet, add more oats. If not, spoon it out into a mini bread pan and press it down with a spoon or your hands.

Slowly use the knife to cut the edges and tip the pan over on a plate to get the brownie out. Cut it in pieces.
