Chocolate Brownie Swirl Roll
I’m actually still in the process of perfecting this, but here is what I started with and it is already a family favorite. This is best kept in the freezer and has a nice soft/crunchy texture to it. The hardest part about this recipe (besides needing the right equipment) is not eating all the brownie batter while waiting for it to dry! I barely had any left to make this piece you see here because of my nibbling! (So I actually doubled the original recipe that I made. I hope it turns out the same.) If you don’t want to go through the trouble of making and assembling this with the vanilla cream, it also makes great brownies (an try putting jungle peanuts on top!) Yum!
¼ cup Yacon Syrup
¼ cup Raw Honey
.66 cup Maple Syrup
1 cup Cacao Powder
.66 cup Cacao Nibs
1 teaspoon Goji Powder
2 tablespoon (heaping) Raw Almond Butter
.66 cup Cacao Butter
½ cup Coconut Butter/Oil
¼ cup water (more or less)
Chocolate Brownie: Put all the ingredients in a Vita-Mix or very high powered blender (you’ll need it). Blend until smooth. Place batter on 1 or 2 teflex sheets and spread 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Dehyrate for 24 – 36 hours. (Half way through remove from teflex sheet (carefully)). It will still be a little soft. Move to parchment or wax paper & place in the refrigerator to firm a little before going to assembly step.
- 1/2 c. cashews or macadamia nuts (soaked for 4+ hrs)
- 1/2 c. coconut meat (of young coconut)
- 2-3 T. coconut water/juice (from young coconut)
- 1/4 c. light agave nectar
- 1/4 c. coconut oil
- 1 T. vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
The Vanilla Filling is a very slight alteration from the Vanilla Cream recipe in the “Raw Food, Real World” cookbook. Place all the ingredients in a Vita-Mix or high powered blender (again, you’ll need the horse power to really blend this). Chill in the refrigerator.
Assembly: With the Brownie flats on wax or parchment paper, spread the vanilla filling thinly on top. Carefully roll the brownie and wrap in parchment/wax paper and freeze. Before you are ready to eat, take it out of the freezer for 5-10 minutes. Cut into bite-sized pieces. Refreeze whatever you don’t eat.
