What does a vegan band dude do when he's not on the road?

Give raw vegan brownies a shot!  I'm been at home for quite a while now between tours and I love to be in the kitchen when I have the time.  My taste buds generally lean more to savoury dishes than sweets and deserts but I figured with the little research I did this would be a good one to start with.  So I went to the store, bought a little food processor and the ingredients I didn't have on hand and went to work.

1 cup walnuts
1 cup dates
1/3 cup raw cacao powder

1 1/2 avocados
1/2 cup agave nectar
1/4 raw cacao powder
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp vanilla extract
a few drops of lemon juice
1 tsp shelled hemp seeds

Put the base ingredients in a food processor and process until chunky, then press into a pan.
Take the icing ingredients(except the hemp seeds) and blend till smooth.  Spread the icing over the brownies.  Sprinkle the hemp seeds over the icing and put in the freezer for at least an hour.
It's all yours now!!
