Recipe: Kale Brownie Bites with Chocolate Avocado Frosting

-

Now, I'm not going to lie to you…. these are definitely an acquired taste. They taste…. "unique"! LOL

But, considering they are basically made from vegetables and have no sugar and no unhealthy fats in them, then they aren't that bad. My girlfriend and I joke often about our opposing culinary tastes. She makes these awesome mint chocolate brownies, and to be honest, they are like little bites of heaven in my mouth. However, they are full fat, full sugar, all the fructose syrup and additives you can possibly imagine, so no wonder they taste incredible!

I however, believe in the power of a whole food plant based diet, and i know that eating clean, pays off in the long run. So, there you have it… Kale brownies… You know what you are getting into before you sign up for them!

12 oz cooked /mashed butternut squash, cooled down

1/2 cup of coconut oil, melted

3/4 cacao nibs

4 tbsp cacao powder

Mix together the cooled, mashed butternut squash, kale/ cranberry, coconut oil, eggs, maple syrup in one bowl.

In another bowl, mix together coconut flour, cocoa nibs, cacao powder, baking powder and salt and mix with a wooden spoon.

Then combine all ingredients, stir well and pour into the muffin tray.

Bake for 40 mins or until brownies are firm and set.
