Brownies with Mint Chocolate Frosting (RAW)

I must have been on a brownie kick this week, moving from the far from RAW "Oreo Cheesecake Brownies" to these ultimate RAW delights. I added a mint kick to Ani Phyo's Chocolate Frosting and slathered them on my favorite RAW brownie recipe. My husband must have liked them because he couldn't wait for them to set, and even picked up all of the crumbs that were on and around him (which he usually reserves for the dogs). These will keep in the fridge for a few days, but will keep in the freezer for months (if they last that long).

Ingredients (makes about 8 brownies):
2 1/2 cup chopped walnuts 
1 cup dates
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract

Mint Chocolate Frosting:
1 avocado
1/3 cup dates
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp mint extract

1) Blend the frosting ingredients together until smooth. Keep cold in the fridge until ready to use.
2) Blend all of the brownie ingredients in a blender until well combined, and form a ball. It is best to blend/ process the walnuts first so that they are fine, then add all of the other ingredients. Press the brownie ingredients down into a 8 inch glass baking pan, then spread the frosting on top with a spatula. Allow the brownies to set in the fridge for about 1 hour prior to cutting. Serve, and enjoy!

  2. Made these last night and they are FABULOUS! They turned out a bit crumbly, though the frosting and being in the freezer helped quite a bit. Did you keep yours in the refrigerator or freezer? Also were your dates completely blended, like a paste? -(Mine seem to be some paste-ified some not quite, both in frosting and brownie) I blended everything in a food processor.

  3. I think it might depend on the blender. I have a blender that just obliterates the crap out of everything, so the frosting is super smooth. There shouldn't be any chunks of dates, they should be fully incorporated. Although, the flavor will be the same, just not the texture. Maybe if you add a little bit of liquid it should help smooth out the frosting??? In regards to the brownie base, you might want to soak your dates in water first, drain them fully, then blend. Although, I don't know how the finished product will be, but it will help smooth out the brownie base.

  4. Fabulous idea. I will try that out tonight!
