Raw Blueberry Maple Chipotle Brownies

I like to go back and look at my past recipes on the blog to see if there is anything that I might want to rawify.  I was looking the other day and one caught my eye.  A few years back, I had made some Blueberry Maple Chipotle Brownies and they were pretty amazing. I love the combination of blueberry and chocolate, or chipotle and chocolate or just chipotle and berries, so the combination as a whole is a win and the maple thrown in even better.

So, since that was a baked recipe, I wanted to rawify it and make it even more tasty.  Eric was all for it too, because he loves chocolate and spice.  I made a fudgy brownie batter including berries to keep it moist, a good amount of chipotle for a kick and of course a touch of maple.  It was freaking delicious!  I mixed in blueberries and cacao nibs before cutting them into cute little hearts. They were good as they were, but I decided that they would be even better with raw chocolate drizzled over.  They were even more delicious than my original baked recipe!  I think these would work with other types of berries as well!

Raw Blueberry Maple Chipotle Brownies
Makes 12

2 1/2 cups raw coconut flour (home made is preferred)
1 1/4 cups ground flaxseed
2/3 cup soft medjool dates, pitted
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tsp maple extract
1/2 tsp chipotle pepper
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup raw cacao powder

1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup raw cacao nibs

1/2 cup chopped raw dark chocolate or chunks

For the dough, in a food processor, combine the coconut flour, flaxseed, dates and salt, and process until the dates are very finely chopped and it is all well combined.  Add the vanilla, maple extract, 2 cups blueberries, and cacao powder and process until smooth like dough.  Mix in the 1 cup blueberries and cacao nibs by kneading it by hand.  Shape into a square 3/4 inch thick (I used a rolling pin and bench scrapers to shape it). Cut into 12 hearts and set aside.  Melt the chopped chocolate (I simply put mine in the dehydrator in a bowl and allow it to melt that way), then drizzle it over the brownies and put in the freezer for about 2-5 minutes to set the chocolate (or if you want it still melted by all means dig right in).  Store in the fridge.
