Recipe
Raw Chocolate Raspberry Slice
Category: Raw Foods
Description: These raw chocolate-raspberry brownie bars are at the top of my dessert list, but I always say that when I make a new dessert! I love finding flavors that work well together, and this classic pairing of chocolate and raspberry is perfect. The layers of this recipe work so well together; the chocolate nut base has the perfect crunch to it, the raspberry layer is soft and sweet and the chocolate layer will leave you wanting more.

Red Raspberries contain strong antioxidants such as Vitamin C, quercetin and gallic acid that fight against cancer, heart and circulatory disease and age-related decline. They are high in ellagic acid, a known chemopreventative, and have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties.

They are also a very good source of copper and a good source of vitamin K, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin E, magnesium, folate, omega-3 fatty acids, and potassium.
