Cleaning up is quite possibly the worst part of baking.  After the desserts are plated and the plates licked clean, the kitchen is a disaster zone of leftover ingredients and utensils dirtied in the name of a fancy production.  More often than not, people overlook the simple desserts–delicious treats that require very little time, energy, and clean up.

Raw vegan recipes are the best examples of stress-free baking.  Raw, in this sense, means uncooked and generally unaltered ingredients.  No processed products, no artificial preservatives, just healthy ingredients and their natural nutrients.  Often these desserts call for berries, nuts, and other easily accessible foods.  This simple brownie recipe requires only three ingredients and tastes just as satisfying as the butter and oven variety.



  • 1 cup dried apricots
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder


  • Blender or food processor

Combine all the ingredients in the food processor and blend until a solid mass forms.  Spread the mixture into a pan of your choosing, cut it into squares, and enjoy!  The best part about this recipe is how easy and versatile it is.  Substitute the apricots for another dried fruit and pick your favorite nut and variety of coco powder.  Cut them into bars and make on-the-go breakfast bars or flavorful workout snacks.  Use it as a pie crust for this berry filling or your favorite recipe.  Go crazy with it!

These brownies are healthy, easy, and tasty–the perfect baking trio!
