Raw Dessert Recipe: Carob Brownies – gluten free, low glycemic and delicious!

By Ritamarie Loscalzo


This yummy recipe is quick & easy to make & doesn’t need any soaking or dehydrating. One of my team likes to make some extra & keep it in the freezer, so she knows she has a healthy sweet snack at hand.

Low Glycemic Carob Brownies

2 cups almonds, ground to a powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 cup chia seeds, grounddoctorritamarie-fd108d7c-7da7-4394-a922-0fa5407ae563-v2
1/4 cup raw carob powder
2 tablespoons ground butternut squash
20 – 22 drops Sweet Leaf Whole Leaf Stevia Concentrate
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Process almonds, salt, chia seeds and carob powder in a food processor until thoroughly combined.
2. Add the squash, stevia, and vanilla extract.
3. Pulse a few times, and then process the mixture until it begins to stick together like a dough.
4. Press the mixture into a parchment paper lined 6-inch square pan and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
5. Remove from pan by pulling the parchment paper up.
6. Slice and enjoy.

TIP: When adding the stevia drops, start with the smaller amount, mix and taste. Add more, one drop at a time, if more sweetness is desired.

      Yes, Bo, it is fresh raw squash that you grind. I have done it in a coffee grinder, but whatever you can use is fine.
