With a “holiday” like Valentine’s Day coming up it just makes sense to have heart-shaped foods with chocolate and pink-something. So this time around I have made some chocolate brownie-cookies with a pink coconut frosting. Tasty, simple, easy, and sexy all at once.

Chocolate Valentine’s Hearts with Pink Frosting

Ingredients

For the cookie:

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 4-5 dates, soaked and pitted
  • 2 T cacao powder
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 1 t vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt
For the frosting:
  • 1/4 cup coconut manna
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (not raw)
  • 1-2 T beet juice
  • 1 t vanilla

Instructions

For the cookie:

  • Place the walnuts in a food processor and process until a flour forms.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and process until a chunky dough forms.
  • You can place in a baking dish to make brownies, or roll out between two plastic sheets to make cookies.
  • Place in the fridge until ready to frost.

For the frosting:

  • In a glass bowl and the coconut manna and coconut oil and place over a pot of warm water. As it melts, mix to incorporate.*
  • Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients.
  • Spread onto cookies and place in the fridge to harden.
*A Note: The frosting may be thick or it may be creamy … either is fine. I make this frosting often and it’s always a guess to how mine will turn out!
