Raw Chocolate Cake Brownies with Fluffy Chocolate Frosting
Serves: Makes 10 small brownies
*Makes 1 loaf-sized pan of brownies (10 small brownies)
  • ⅓ cup Apple Puree (or apple sauce for a non-raw substitute)
  • ⅓ cup + 1 tablespoon Coconut Flour
  • ½ cup Almond Flour
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon Raw Cacao Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Vanilla
  • ⅛ teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Almond Milk
  • ¼ cup Raw Honey or agave, coconut nectar (for Vegan brownies)
  • For the Frosting:
  • ¾ cups Dark Chocolate, chopped (or chips)
  • ⅓ cup Almond Milk
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Oil, just barely melted
  1. Line a large loaf pan with parchment paper so that it hangs over the sides. Crease the paper where needed to fit into the pan.
  2. Start with the frosting:
  3. Place the chocolate chips in a large mixing bowl. Heat the almond milk to steaming (in a small pan over the stove or in the microwave). Pour the milk over the chocolate , stir a few times and let sit for a minute or two so that the chocolate can soften and melt. Stir until smooth. Add the coconut oil and mix in well. Place in the refrigerator while you make the brownie base.
  4. For the brownie base:
  5. Place all ingredients in a food processor and process on high speed until well combined and relatively smooth. Let sit for a few minutes to allow the coconut flour to absorb the liquid ingredients. Press into the prepared pan.
  6. Remove the frosting from the fridge. It should have set at this point and should no longer be shiny and glossy. Beat the frosting on high speed with an electric mixer for about 1½ to 2 minutes, or until frosting becomes lighter in color and fluffy. Spread over the brownies base (frosting will be firm and thick so you may need to press it in more than you'll need to spread it).
  7. Chill for 3-4 hours, or until cold and firm. Slice into squares.
  8. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge.
