Serve this in a Trifle Bowl and you will be hearing oohs and aahs all around. The Trifle Bowl will give you a beautiful presentation. However, using small clear glasses is perfect when you only need a couple of parfaits.

Layer parfait accordingly: Outrageous Brownie, Sweet Potato Cream, Strawberries, Whipped Plant Cream and Top with Vanilla-Pumpkin Spice Pecans. Repeat layers again if you choose.

Outrageous Brownies

I have been wanting to make some brownies, but I wanted them to be healthy. I know an oxymoron, but that is what I wanted. Now, you do not have to feel guilty eating  brownies. They are a moist chocolatey all in one bite and good for you.

Another good thing about this recipe is that it is all mixed in a food processor.

  • 1 15 oz can black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 c Date Paste
  • 1/2 c cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 3/4 c rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • vegan chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8×8 baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.

Combine beans, date paste and cocoa powder into the food processor. Process until creamy and smooth. Add oats, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla and apple cider vinegar. Process until well combined.

Spread batter into prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the batter.

Bake for 35 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
