Vegan Brownies With Cashews

Dark, decadent and nutty, these vegan-friendly brownies are the ultimate indulgence

Going vegan does not mean missing out on treats like the ever-popular chocolate brownie. With a generous dollop of coconut yoghurt on top it makes the perfect dessert and looks gorgeous with a sprinkle of raspberry powder, which is available in supermarkets.
