Raw Cherry Frosted Brownies

Raw Cherry Frosted Brownies

Wanted chocolate + cherries + whole food indulgence without turning on the stove? Look no further! A cherry-accented variation of the Raw Frosted Brownies that are such a crowd-pleaser, you can make this with frozen cherries all year round, or substitute the same amount of defrosted berries and juice for the cherries if that’s your preference. If your dates are not soft and juicy, reconstitute them by soaking them in hot water for 20 - 30 minutes.

1 lb. soft medjool dates,
pits and dry ends removed
⅓ cup defrosted frozen cherries
tablespoon pure vanilla extract
cup slavery-free cacao powder
cup pure maple syrup
Pinch of salt

Pulse the pecans and almonds together until they are fine crumbs in a food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until as smooth as possible. Press into an 8-X-8-inch baking pan, lined with parchment paper.

cup cashew butter
2 tablespoons cherry juice, reserved from defrosted cherries
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
cup cacao powder
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons non-dairy milk

In a medium bowl, combine the nut butter, cherry juice, vanilla, cacao, maple syrup, non-dairy milk and pinch of salt until smooth. Spread over the top of the brownies and put in the fridge for a couple of hours. Slice and serve.
