Chocolate Coconut Brownies (Raw, Vegan, Gluten-Free)

I have made these brownies for the last few potlucks I have gone to - and even omnivores love them. I have yet to bring home any leftovers.

Makes 24 brownies (depending on how you cut them)
Ingredients:
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw pecans
1 vanilla bean
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup raw cacao powder
1 cup dehydrated coconut flake
3 cups fresh dates, pitted
2 Tbs coconut oil

Directions:
  1. Process nuts, vanilla bean and salt in a food processor fitted with the "S" blade until nuts are powder.
  2. Add cacao powder and pulse to incorporate
  3. Add coconut flake and pulse to incorporate.
  4. Add dates and coconut oil and pulse until mixture starts to form a dough ball.
  5. Press into a 9"x13" pan and let set in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  6. Cut into squares and enjoy!
