Brownies with cacao frosting

vegan brownies cacaoThese brownies with cacao frosting are one of my favorite recipes ever. They are the softest, sweetest, moistest, chocolatey bites ever, and then this recipe is actually very easy to make, with no added sugar and only naturel ingredients, and the sea salt flakes are perfect on top.

Salt/chocolate is just always a great combo for brownies. If you aren’t used to sugar free cakes, you can easily add a couple of tablespoons honey, maple syrup or sugar for extra sweetness. If you want to try out more of these vegan brownie recipes I can recommend trying these healthy brownies with sweet potatoes.

  • Brownie:
  • 8 sweet organic medjool dates (soft fresh dates that I buy in card board boxes)
  • 1 soft banana
  • 1 cup of almond milk (or other plant milk)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup of organic flour
  • ½ cup of dark cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Frosting:
  • 8 sweet organic medjool dates
  • 2 teaspoon of strong espresso
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tablespoon dark cacao powder



Brownie: Start preheat the oven to 180°C. Pit the sweet dates and add to a mixer with 1 banana, milk and apple cider vinegar. Add the following ingredients and mix carefully. (If you aren’t used to sugar free cakes, you can easily add a couple of tablespoons maple syrup, honey or sugar). Place some baking paper in rectangular baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes at 180°C degrees. Cool down while making the chocolate frosting.


Frosting: Make the chocolate frosting by mixing all the ingredients in a food processor until completely smooth. You can easily omit the coffee if you don't like the taste. Spread the icing on top of the cake and cut into squares. Sprinkle with salt - and enjoy!
