Raw "Half-Baked" Brownies

Another experiment with raw desserts! I set out to make some raw brownies but I added too much water and they tasted more like half-baked brownies. These can be held in your hand when eaten but is easier with a fork. This recipe makes around 8 brownies.

3 c. raw pecans
2 tbsp. raw almond butter
1/4 c. cocoa powder
1/2 c. water
1/4 c. coconut oil, liquified
1 tsp. vanilla extract

- Using your food processor, blend your pecans until they become a flour-like texture. This will take a few minutes. Don't process for too long or it'll become pecan butter!

- Place all other ingredients into your food processor with your pecans and run until smooth and creamy.

- Smooth into a pan of your choice, freeze for 30 minutes, and then refrigerate until you're ready to eat.

I am pretty sure I wouldn't have had to use the coconut oil if I hadn't put in so much water. The oil still made them taste pretty darn good, though. These brownies were soft, moist, and full of chocolate-y goodness. Please make these. Now.
