This recipe came from Chocolate Covered Katie and is perfect for those eating a vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free, or raw diet. Not to mention, they are really good!
For the Brownies:
For the Frosting:
Prepare a pan by lining it with parchment or wax paper. I used an 8×8 baking dish but will try next time with a loaf pan, for thicker brownies.
In a food processor, combine the dates, walnuts, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, water, and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Process until smooth, yet crumbly.
Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of your prepared pan.
Separately, whisk together the maple syrup, cocoa powder, and coconut oil. Pour over the “brownies” and spread evenly.
Allow to rest in the refrigerator for at least two hours before cutting.
Store in refrigerator and enjoy cold.
