No Bake Super Fudgy Brownies

These super rich, fudgy bars have been a favorite dessert of mine for years. If an energy bite and a devil's food cake had a baby, it would be these no bake brownies. I like to use Almonds or Cashews, but feel free to use any nut you prefer.  They also keep well in the freezer, making them the perfect make ahead treat. 

No Bake Super Fudgy Brownies
2 C. Almonds
2 C. Dates
1/3 C. Raw cacao powder (or regular cocoa powder)
1/3 C. Unsweetened shredded coconut
¼ t. salt
1-2 T. Brown rice syrup - You can sub maple syrup, but I like the way the brown rice syrup holds these together
½ C. creamy peanut butter (or any nut butter you like!)
½ C. Coconut butter (I make my own by processing unsweetened coconut shreds in my food processor until it becomes like buttah. Yum.)
1 ¼ C. Non-dairy chocolate chips or good quality dark chocolate bar, chopped
Line an 8x8 pan or 9" pie plate with wax paper or aluminum foil.
Put the almonds, dates, cacao powder, coconut shreds, brown rice syrup and salt in your food processor and process until everything is chopped and mixed and relatively dough-like. Press mixture into the bottom of your pan.
Melt together the peanut butter, coconut butter and chocolate chips until smooth. Pour over the almond mixture and refrigerate until set. Give it a few hours, at least. Slice and enjoy, or freeze for later!
