Raw Brownies with Chocolate Frosting

wp_20161119_011

These are the BEST RAW BROWNIES EVER! Thanks to @datesandavocados for sharing her recipe! As a chocolate lover, brownies are my favorite sweet food and as a vegan I can still enjoy them at the same time that I know that I am nurturing my body. These raw brownies consist of nuts and dates. I used almonds and walnuts but you can use other nuts, although it does change the flavor of the brownie. For the frosting, I used a ripe avocado and…oooooh my!… it gets a perfect frosting!

Really, you should consider veganism if you have a sweet tooth. Veganism let you enjoy your favorite desserts in the most healthy way by providing you healthy fats, high quality protein and carbohydrates that energize!

PS: I advertise you that your kitchen can get messy, unless mine got messy. I go so crazy with chocolate that EVERY TIME I play with it I get chocolate all over my hand and my kitchen top also. Even when I am making the Chocolate Peanut Spread, I got messy with chocolate!
