Maybe you have seen some version of these brownies floating around the food blogs. I’ve tried many different versions of these. Different amounts of dates, cacao, other additions. Walnuts vs. pecans. So after much trial and error, you can bet that these are the best version of raw brownies you can find.
You can use walnuts here if you can’t find pecans, but pecans definitely make for a better brownie. I can’t exactly put my finger on why. Maybe the texture? It definitely tastes richer with the pecans. Maybe you can do some brownie experimenting and see which one you like best.
