For the brownies:
1 cup cooked black beans
1/2 cup dates
5 heaped tablespoon raw cacao powder
1/2 ripe avocado
1 cup Coconut milk
1 cup water
3 heaped tablespoon coconut flour
1/2 tsp gluten free baking powder (optional, leave out if paleo)
For the matcha coconut frosting
4-5 tbsp coconut cream
1/4 tsp matcha powder
sweeten with coconut sugar to taste(if desired)

For the brownies:
Preheat oven to 180C
Place all ingredients for brownie in a blender, and blend for 5-7 minutes, until the batter is smooth and make sure that there are no chunks.
Grease a brownie pan with coconut oil or line it with wax paper.
Transfer batter into the pan, and bake at 180 for 25-30 minutes.
Take brownie out of the oven and let it cool fully before cutting/serving, the brownie will be soft when it first comes out of the oven, but will harden once it cools.

For the coconut cream:
Hand whisk your coconut cream with matcha until it forms whipped cream consistency, should take no longer than a minute. Add coconut sugar to taste if desired.
Frost your fully cooled brownies and garnish with cacao nibs. Serve immediately

Make sure that your brownies have cooled fully before you frost them, otherwise the cream will melt!

Enjoy!
