Ingredients for the Brownies:

1 1/4 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 eggs
1/2 cup cashew butter
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Ingredients for the Topping:

1 cup vegan sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup pecan pieces


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Put all the brownie ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Line an 8x8 glass baking dish with parchment paper. Leave enough room for some to stick out the sides.

Pour the batter into the glass baking dish and bake for 30-40 minutes.

While the brownies are baking, make the topping.

Combine all topping ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Once the brownies have cooled, spread the topping on top.

Slice and serve.

*Store these brownies in an airtight container in the fridge. They should last at least a week!
