Raw Almond Butter Brownies

Sweet, chocolately and crunchy is the best way to describe these delicious brownies.  They will always hit the spot when I am craving something sweet and having no added refined sugars makes every bite completely guilt free.   

3 cups almonds
2 tablespoons almond butter
25 medium, soft dates, pitted (or 20 soaked Medjool dates)
3 tablespoons cacao powder

Almond cacao frosting:
3 tablespoons almond butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
½ tablespoon cacao powder
1 date (optional)

Grind almonds in a food processor until flour. Add in the cacao powder and the almond butter, then blend a little longer. Add in the dates and process until everything sticks together. Press the batter out in a lined tin and set aside.

Blend together all ingredients for the frosting in a blender (or in the food processor). When the mixture is smooth (it will be a little runny), frost the brownie and let it sit in the fridge for at least an hour or so before slicing and serving.
