Step 2:

For the peanut butter layer use the same food processor without cleaning to make things easy!

1/2 c. almonds
1/4 c. walnuts
3/4 c. raisins
1/2 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. peanut butter (no sugar please)

Grind nuts, raisins and oatmeal in the food processor until crumbly. Add peanut butter and whiz until mixture comes together and can hold its shape. Set aside.
Any whole food options for the dates and raisins? <br>
You will have to elaborate. I guess I don't know what you mean.

Good to know, thanks!!
DISCLAIMER: I have a major sweet tooth! <br> <br>My wife and I just made these... sort of. We didn't use the same ingredients or amounts. We had a walnut, almond, pistachio, craisin mixture on hand. So, we substituted the walnut, almond, and raisins with that (for both types of layers). <br> <br>We also didn't grind the nuts separately, due to them already being mixed in with the craisins. So, our brownie layers were a bit on the dry side, I think. <br> <br>To be frank, I wouldn't necessarily call them brownies. I mean, you can call them what you want. But, they're much more like energy bars in flavor and texture. <br> <br>Overall, I liked our version. But, I'll definitely use raisins next time. The craisins were a bit tart. I wonder if bananas would work in this recipe, or if they would be too soft. Maybe if you chill them? Anyhow, thanks for the recipe. I always enjoy trying vegan/raw recipes.
Raisins and dates have a lot of natural sugar content making the flavor just Iike a brownie. Definitely try that next time. You really shouldn't be able to tell the difference in flavor. Plus dates and raisins don't have any refined sugar like craisins do. I have never eaten a brownie with a cranberry like flavor so maybe that's where you were missing out. <br> <br>I did mention in the instructable that the texture is not like a brownie but I think if you refine the recipe you will be pleased! <br> <br>Try adding more vanilla extract (or almond extract) to get the moisture content you want. Mine were not dry and there isn't anything worse than a dry dessert!!!! <br> <br>Thanks for trying them and I'm glad you enjoyed them!
They look delicious!
Thank you, they are!!
Yum! These look amazing!
Thank you! It's so great when you can make something so healthy that your whole family loves. My boys request these!
Are these gluten free?
I don't know much about eating gluten free or wheat allergies to answer that for sure. I do know that most brands of oats are not gluten free so you would need to do some more homework and make sure you buy certified gluten free oats.
Ok, Thanks!
Oh very good! I like these as I have a milk allergy. Thanks.
I didn't think to list dairy free on these with the rest of the good stuff! Thank you for noticing that! These would be great for someone with a dairy allergy.
Love that these don't have any sugar! :D They look tasty!
They are fantastic. Let me know if you make a batch and let me know what you think!
