This thick, rich brownie recipe uses cherries, coconut, and – of course – lots of chocolate to make a mouthwateringly good sweet treat. The dates base for these brownies give them a fudgy consistency that compliments the rich flavor of the cherries and the tropical hints from the coconut.

Cherry Ripe Brownies [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Ingredients

For the Brownie:

  • 2 cups dates
  • 1 1/2 cups macadamia nuts
  • 1 1/2 cups freeze-dried cherries
  • 1 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1 avocado
  • 3/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons cacao butter (optional)

For the Topping:

  • 1/4 cups freeze-dried cherries
  • 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut

Preparation

  1. Blend the macadamia nuts and dates in a food processor until you achieve a chunky texture.
  2. Add coconut, cacao powder, and salt and blend again until combined.
  3. Add avocado and vanilla, and blend on low until fully they’re combined but still retaining some crunchy chunky texture from the nuts.
  4. Finally, add the freeze dried cherries and pulse them gently to mix through until they are slightly crushed but still visible.
  5. Press the mix into a lined tray, then sprinkle it with the additional cherries and desiccated coconut, pressing lightly so they set in.
  6. Place the brownies in the freezer for one hour to set, then slice and serve.
