Raw Fudge Brownies with Creamy Vanilla Coconut Frosting

 This recipe of divinity came when I decided to put two of my favorites quick and delicious desserts together. It was the brownie/dessert that saved me after having our most recent baby and there was no healthy desserts on the menu at the hospital.:) I had made them before going in and every day my dear husband brought some to me and even stored a few in the hospital freezer. That was thinking ahead!

  First, I took the recipe from the Raw Fudge Babies and doubled it, changing slightly, Then, I topped it with the creamy frosting from the Raw Oreo's, set it in the freezer and voi-la. Completely quick and satisfying dessert.
 I start with the frosting on this one, and usually make a double batch so I can have the rest in the freezer for a quick frosting. If it freezes all the way and is thawed about 15 minutes you can stir it up and use it as a "whipped" frosting.

Creamy Vanilla Coconut Frosting
1/2 C Young Thai Coconut Meat
1 C Cashews
1/2 C Agave
1/8 C Pure Maple Syrup
1 Tbsp. Pure Vanilla
1/4 C Coconut Oil
Squeeze of Fresh Lemon, about 2 Tbsp.
Freeze until ready to use.

 Raw Fudge Brownies
(doubled from the fudge babies)
2 C Almonds
1 C Pecans
1/2 C raw Cocoa powder
1 1/2 C Medjool dates,pitted (about 16~make sure they are not too soft, or use less)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Pure Vanilla
This is where you blend up the nuts, dates, cocoa, salt, and vanilla, in 2 batches, scrape out into a big bowl  adding enough agave to make it stick together, but not wet sticky. I ended up with a nice thick brownie batter which I pressed into a 9x9 glass dish.
Top with about 1 C of Frosting and freeze at least an hour for a firmer frosting. Cut into 1x1 inch pieces and Enjoy!
