  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 3/4 cup plant milk


  • 1 small apple
  • 2 tablespoons plant milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place all dry ingredients in a food processor.
  3. Process until all ingredients are incorporated and you can no longer see large chunks of dates or figs.

  5. Pour the brownie batter into a lined baking tray or cake pan.
  6. Top with apple slices. Gently push the apples down to secure them.

  9. Transfer the baked brownie to a wire rack and let cool completely in pan before cutting.
