Ingredients

Prune purée
  • 1 bag of Sunsweet ® D’Noir™ Prunes
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • Brownie batter
  • 1/2 cup Applesauce
  • 3/4 cup Cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut oil
  • 3/4 – 1 cup Coconut sugar (to taste)
  • 1/2 cup Flour of choice (all-purpose, whole-wheat, oat, gluten-free all-purpose)
  • 1/3 cup Prune purée
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 cup Walnuts
  • Coconut Oil Frosting
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp Almond milk
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup Powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Prune purée
  • 2 Tbsp Solid coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • Procedure

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF (175ºC).
  • To make the prune purée, blend Sunsweet ® D’Noir™ Prunes and water together in a food processor for 3-5 minutes, until extremely smooth.
  • Line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with foil. Spray with cooking spray.
  • In one bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, flour, sugar and salt from the brownie batter ingredients.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, prune purée, and apple sauce from the brownie batter ingredients, until smooth.
  • Add the dry brownie batter ingredients into the wet and stir to combine. It will seem dry at first, but will turn into a fudgy batter! Do not over mix.
  • Spread into the prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until set.
  • While the brownies bake, you can start the frosting by usng a hand mixer to cream the coconut oil in a bowl.
  • Add remaining frosting ingredients and mix until smooth.
  • Adjust consistency using powdered sugar to thicken and milk to thin. You don’t want any clumps of oil or sugar– it should be thick and creamy!
  • When the brownies are done, remove from the oven and allow to cool to the touch. Use the foil lining to remove the brownies from the pan.
  • Frost with your coconut oil frosting (see above), and top with chopped walnuts.
  • Cut into squares and enjoy! Lasts 3-5 days in the fridge.
