A Tasty Sweet Treat For All To Eat!

By: Rowanna Watson

My raw, vegan coconut brownies are perfect for any occasion – breakfast, dessert or even as an after-school snack. Easy to make; even easier to eat!

Tapioca flour is a healthier way to thicken up vegan icing, meaning you can still enjoy a creamy topping even if you’re trying to avoid gluten, dairy or high FODMAP foods.



  • Medjool dates 350g
  • Salt 0.3g (pinch)
  • Vanilla extract 2tsp
  • Coconut oil 1tbsp
  • Cocoa powder 60g
  • Avocado, medium ½
  • Coconut flour 100g
  • Agave 2tbsp


  • Coconut cream 200ml
  • Cocoa powder 25g
  • Agave 3tbsp
  • Avocado, medium ½
  • Tapioca flour 60g
  • Vanilla extract 2tsp

Cooking Method

Step 1

Line a 9”x5” inch tin with parchment paper and set aside.

Step 2

Strain the coconut cream out, preserving the liquid.

Step 3

Add all of the dough ingredients into a food processor and blend well (approx 2 mins), until mix forms into a breadcrumb-like consistency.

Step 4

Slowly pour the coconut water (strained from the tin) into the mix and blend until a dough forms.

Step 5

Transfer dough into the tin and press firmly, pushing down to get an even consistency throughout the tin. Place in the fridge while preparing the icing.

Step 6

For the icing, add the coconut cream, avocado, cocoa, agave and vanilla extract to the food processor and blitz until smooth (approx 4 mins), stopping to scrape down the sides.

Step 7

Once smooth, slowly start to add the tapioca starch to thicken up the icing. Do one tbsp at a time, until it reaches a thick buttercream consistency.

Step 8

Remove the brownie dough out of the fridge. Spoon the icing on to the brownies and spread out with the back of a spoon until the icing is even.

Step 9

Keep the brownies in a refrigerator until it is time to serve (allow at least 15 mins of chill time.)

Step 10

Carefully remove the brownies from the tin by lifting out the parchment paper and placing it on a chopping board. Cut it into squares of approx 1.5″-2″
