- 8 medium-sized bananas, cut into 1-inch pieces and frozen
- 2 cup frozen cherries
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoon to 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, as needed
- 4 tablespoons mini vegan chocolate chips

Process until creamy, adding almond milk one tablespoon at a time as needed.
Add the chocolate chips. Please serve immediately.
Raspberry Truffle Brownies
Dense, fudgy, vegan brownies are loaded with raspberry flavor. The frozen berries work better here because the dough is stiff and the frozen berries are easier to fold in.
- 8 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
- 1 cup raspberry jam
- 1 cup evaporated cane juice or cane sugar
- 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 cups whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cup raspberries, frozen or fresh
- Set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line an 8 x 8-inch pan with a 10-inch square of parchment paper or prepare an 8 x 8-inch nonstick or silicone pan.
- Melt the chocolate either in a double boiler or in the microwave. Put aside.
- Mix the jam, sweetener, and applesauce vigorously in a large mixing bowl. Add the vanilla, almond extract, and melted chocolate.
- Add the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Combine very well until a stiff dough forms. Add the raspberries.
- Spread the mixture in the prepared pan. You’ll have to work it out with your hands because it will be very thick.
- 16-18 minutes are needed to bake the brownies. Allow them to cool completely after removing them from the oven. After being refrigerated for a few hours, these taste especially good.
Note: Although the brownies are still very gooey after baking, don’t worry that’s what brownies are for! If they are gooey when they come out of the oven, they will cool nice and fudgy. For best results, let them cool completely and chill in the refrigerator for a few hours.
