Raw Vegan Brownies

This is one of my favourite homemade sweet treats.  The original recipe is here (along with nutritional info) but I thought I’d repost it on my blog along with some pics.

Raw Vegan Brownie


    1 c walnuts
    1 c dates
    1/4 c cocoa powder
    2 avocados
    1/2 c agave nectar [or maple syrup] 
    1/4 c cocoa powder
    2 T coconut oil
    1 T vanilla extract
    dash salt
    dash cinnamon


        Process the brownie ingredients until blended and dry chunky. Press into a small pan.
        Put all icing ingredients into blender, and blend on high till smooth. [I put ingredients in large bowl and blended with stab mixer]
        Spread icing over brownie and pop in freezer to set for 1 hour.

        Do you melt the coconut oil before blending, Charlotte?

        Hi Kek, no I don't usually melt it. Cheers, Charlotte
