This recipe comes from Evan Thomas @ Food Makes Fun Fuel!
Like any good recipe, this was inspired by a predecessor. I went to Grezzo’s, a raw and vegan restaurant in the Boston area, and was in love with their raw and vegan brownie I took home for dessert. But was it worth $5 when it tasted essentially like a souped up Larabar? Not quite. Instead, I fuddled around with internet recipes to find this perfect balance of flavor. The seeds in particular I picked for their subtlety and effect.
Raw Vegan Brownies With Raw Chocolate Frosting
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds
3/4 cup(120 grams) dates
3 tablespoons agave nectar
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 tablespoon agave nectar
1. In a food processor, grind the sunflower seeds and flax seeds until mostly crumbs, but not to the point of becoming like butter. Add the dates and agave nectar and mix until a ball of dough forms. Add in the cocoa powder and continue mixing until well incorporated. Press into a square dish and cut.
2. For the frosting, mash the avocado until it reaches a smooth consistency. Add the cocoa powder and agave nectar and continue mixing until completely smooth. Spread over each of the brownies.
