½ a Cup of Buckwheat Groats
1tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tbsp Raw Coco Powder
7 Medjool Dates
6 tbsp Water
1.Begin by lining a small container with baking paper.
2. Next, grind the buckwheat groats using a mortar and pestle until they reduce down to a fine powder.
3. Transfer the buckwheat powder into a blender, along with vanilla extract, Medjool dates and raw coco powder.
4. While this is coming together in the blender, gradually add water to reduce the ingredients to a moist mixture.
5. Once this is combined, fold through the chopped walnuts and then scoop the mixture into the small lined container and freeze overnight.
6. The next day, cut the brownie into pieces and place in an air-tight container. Keep the brownies in the freezer until you are ready to serve. You can make the chocolate fudge brownies even healthier by serving them with some seasonal fruits.
