Easy Vegan Brownies



Easy Vegan Brownies

I was really craving brownies the other week but I didn't want to feel bad about eating them. I have been making chocolate protein balls for awhile, and thought there must be something similar in brownie form. I surfed Pinterest for awhile till I came across Minimilast Baker's No Bake Vegan Brownies with Chocolate Ganache. These brownies are a dream. They are delicious, moist, chewy and addicting. This recipe will become a staple in your household for years to come.

Easy Vegan Frosting

Ingredients:

Brownies
-1 cup + 1/2 cup of raw walnuts/pecans 
-1 cup raw almonds
-2 1/2 cup of pitted dates, (if dry soak them in warm water for 10 minutes)
-3/4 coco or cacao powder
-1/4 tsp sea salt

Frosting
-1/4 cup almond milk
-1 cup dairy free dark chocolate, chopped
-2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
-1+ cup powdered sugar
-1/4 sea salt

I changed the ingredients a bit from the original recipe. I've made these brownies both with walnuts and pecans, and both varieties were delicious. I also found using more icing sugar then she suggested made a thicker frosting. I didn't add in cacao nibs but I'm sure if you did they would taste great too. If you are using dry pitted dates, soak them in warm water as suggested. It really helps to add moisture to the brownies and makes for a better "dough".

For an extra treat, warm these brownies up the in the microwave for about 10 seconds and add a little vanilla coconut ice cream. So....good. Trust me, you will be so pleasantly surprised at these delicious brownies. Let me know if you give them a try!
