Raw Vegan Brownies! 🌰 Threw some things together and the result was unexpectedly swell. I’ve always struggled creating a good combination for frosting which is both vegan and healthier. Usually I just opt for a standard choc avocado mousse one, but it’s so soft that with cookies or brownies, it lacks texture. So finally, I made one! This icing is so simple and I could easily eat it alone it’s that good. I don’t ever use measurements or quanities so base it on what you personally like, it’s not like it has to rise or anything:
🌰 Mix together: almond flour, dessicated coconut, a handful of dates (if not using medjool, soften standard dates in a bit of boiling water 5 mins beforehand), cacao, bit of maple (depending on how sweet you like it), bunch of chia seeds, roughly chopped cashews for texture (I reckon hazelnuts would be awesome), and I added a big shake of hemp protein powder for some extra substance and energy but this is interchangeable or can simply be omitted 🌰 Press into a deep baking tray and chuck in the freezer.
Meanwhile melt down about half a cup of coconut oil, then turn off heat and whisk in some cacao and maple syrup (once again to your personal taste). Keep whisking until thick 🌰 Take base out of freezer, pour over icing and freeze for about twenty so it sets together in order to cut. Then dig in 🌰 I’ve kept it in over night and it’s fine to eat straight from the freezer so I’d recommend that for long lasting and chewier icing 🤙🏽 #foodporn #sorrymum #vegan #veganfood #vegancake #veganism #vegancommunity #rawveganbrownies #veganfitness #veganfoodshare #healthyfood #rawfood #paleo #sugarfree #glutenfree #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #foodvsco #instafood #walkenhomefood
