Scrumptious Raw Vegan Carob, Almond and Coconut Brownies Recipe!

Dairy-free, Oil-free, Gluten-free, healthy and absolutely delicious!

1 cup of raw almonds
1/2 cup of dates
1/2 cup of raisins
2 tablespoons of goji berries (optional)
1 tablespoon of shredded coconut

1/2 cup of carob powder
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/4 cup of agave nectar

Place the almonds, dates, raisins, goji berries and shredded coconut in a food processor and pulse until you get a nice fine texture. Place the mixture in a pan (I like to use a Pyrex glass baking dish) and work it with a fork into a dense consistency. Put in the freezer for an hour or two.

Once your brownies have hardened a bit in the freezer, time for the glaze. Mix the carob powder, coconut oil and agave nectar until you achieve a nice creamy consistency. Pour on the brownies evenly and place back in the freezer for another hour.

Show or tell?

"If you love someone showing them is better than telling them. If you stop loving someone, telling them is better than showing them." If you respect and care for someone, communication is crucial; but be kind and compassionate in the way you convey your message.

Pesto and Avocado Mini Tart Recipe

Pesto and avocado fresh mini tarts
Author: TalesofaKitchen
Prep time: 15 mins
Total time: 15 mins
Serves: 6


⅔ cups almonds
4 TBSP sesame seeds
4 TBSP flax seeds, ground
4 TBSP sunflower seeds, crushed
1 small garlic clove, grated
4 TBSP extra virgin olive oil (I used cold pressed)
2 TBSP freshly squeezed lemon juice
pinch sea salt
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
3 cups tightly packed fresh basil
1 handful almonds
1 small handful sunflower seeds
1 medium garlic clove, grated
sea salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4-5 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
2-3 TBSP lemon juice
1 avocado
extra lemon juice, if needed

Totally scrumptious, healthy, and vegan!
Add the first set of ingredients to a blender and process until completely mixed.
Brush your mini tart shapes with a bit of olive oil.
Divide the base mixture in 2 and then each in 3 equal parts. This will give you 6 equal parts. Press each into a tart shape. Place in fridge.
Add all ingredients for the pesto in a food processor and wiz until it gets an oozy consistency.
Mix 6-7 tablespoons of pesto with 1 avocado. Season more if needed (lemon juice, sea salt, black pepper).
Scoop the pesto-avocado mixture into the tart shapes and return to fridge.
Serve cold.

The pesto recipe will yield more pesto than required for the mini tarts. Which means you can plan some pesto pasta for dinner as well!

Thank you to for sharing this wonderful recipe!
