Pretty Yummy Raw Vegan Dessert

Raw Vegan Custard Filled Brownies with Raspberry Sauce

Okay, I don't do this too often where I post one of my food creations without an actual recipe, but I just have to with this one as it is SO darn pretty and yummy!  However, I am including the ingredients I used for inspiration.

Yesterday I wanted to make a special dessert for Mark.  No special occasion, just because.  I knew I wanted a brownie or cake as the base, but with a little more pizazz.  I didn't know exactly what I was going to do next, so I just rolled with it. 

I opened the fridge and the first thing that caught my eye was the fresh raspberries.  Ahhh, a nice sauce for the top of the brownies.  Perfect.  Wait, something else for it, but not overwhelming.  Then it hit me...a custard like filling.

Picture a mad scientist at work in the lab and that was pretty much me.  Grabbing this and that, creating and smiling and tasting and....oh sorry.  So in other words I was so busy creating that I didn't measure or write anything down.

After popping everything in the fridge I cleaned up the lab and started on dinner.  I could hardly wait for dessert.  Oh and it looks much sweeter than it actually is.  We don't do icky sweet, makes my teeth hurt just thinking about it.

Time to prepare the dessert!  Because I made the brownies as a regular batch for later consumption, after cutting a couple long pieces out I simply sliced them in the middle to hold the custard filling.  Then a thin layer of custard on the top brownie, followed by the raspberry sauce and mmmm... so yummy!

I make a variety of my raw brownies and have a couple recipes here, but this one is a bit different, simpler actually.  I need to get better about writing my creations down as I go.  I'll be making this one again and will write it all down, but probably not for a while.  So in the meantime, here's the ingredients I used:

Custard Filled Brownies with Raspberry Sauce

Brownies: pecans, medjool dates, cacao, unsweetened coconut shreds, hemp heart seeds, vanilla

Custard: cashews, vanilla, agave, coconut oil, water

Raspberry Sauce: fresh raspberries, hint of agave

Let your mad scientist out and see what you can create in your own lab :)
