Fabulous and Fudgy Upside-Down Brownie Pie

OHHhhhh YEAH! My favorite brownie recipe so far! We topped the decadent brownie with my Crazy Coconut Ice Cream, and drizzled with chocolate sauce and shredded coconut.
Your friends and family, raw or not, will LOVE this dessert!

Fabulous and Fudgy Upside-Down Brownie Pie Ingredients:
1 cup fresh Dates
1/4  cup sunflower seeds
1/4  cup macadamia or pilli nuts
1/2  cup  walnuts (OR 3/4 cup walnuts and don't  use macadamia nuts)
1/3  cup  cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4  cup maple syrup or to taste
1 Tbsp  mesquite powder (optional)
1/4  cup raw Living Tree Community cacao butter
1  tsp coconut oil
2  Tbsp cacao paste (optional, adds depth)
1/4  cup goji berries  - soaked  (optional)
shredded coconut for garnish
 raw chocolate sauce for garnish


Melt coconut oil, cacao butter and cacao paste in dehydrator or place a medium metal bowl with ingredients set on top of a smaller bowl, filled with hot water. Be careful to not let water spill over into chocolate.

In food processor, mix dates, sunflower seeds, macadamia nuts and walnuts

Add cacao powder, mesquite powder, and sweetener. Mix.

Add melted ingredients. Drain goji berries and add to mixture. Process until everything sticks together.

Coat the bottom of a shallow glass pie plate with shredded coconut.

Using a rubber spatula, pour and press mixture into dish and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or place in freezer for 1 hour).

To release from pie plate -  place glass dish in shallow pan of hot water for a few minutes. Using a dull knife, scrape around edge of pie, separating it from dish, but keeping inside. Place an upside  down plate on top of brownie dish and flip over. Brownie will release onto plate and coconut bottom will now be on top.

Serve brownies with a scoop of crazy coconut ice cream and top with your favorite chocolate fudge sauce and shredded coconut.

This sounds fantastic! Where do you teach your Uncooking classes? How did you get started doing that? How many people did you have attend the class?

I can teach a class pretty much anywhere. This was a small class consisting of two people. I hope to continue doing more of these, but because it's hands on, it's hard to do more than 4-5 at a time. It was pretty intense about 4.5 - 5 hours in length.

I got started by requests. Folks saw my blog and asked if I would consider doing classes. It requires a lot of preparation, but was a ton of fun!
