Black Forest Brownies with Coconut Whip Cream
Chill coconut cream overnight.
Lightly grease an 8 inch square pan. In a small bowl, whisk ground flax and warm water. Set aside for a few minutes to thicken.
In a medium bowl, whisk together melted butter, palm sugar, agave, and vanilla extract. Also whisk in flax mixture, set aside.
In a large bowl, sift flour, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt. Whisk in wet ingredients until there are no lumps, pour into pan and bake for about 20 -25 minutes, or until the brownie starts to pull away from the sides.
If you are using coconut milk, open can, and drain liquid. You will only be using the hardened cream top. In a medium bowl, with a hand mixer, whip coconut cream and powdered sugar on high until the consistency of whip cream, about 1 - 2 minutes. Refrigerate immediately. Whip is easier to use the colder it is.
In a small sauce pan, heat cherries, lemon juice agave, vanilla extract and salt on medium to medium high heat. In a small bowl, whisk cornstarch and water. When cherries comes to a light boil, add cornstarch and water mixture. Whisk until thickened, a few minutes.
Let brownies cool completely before cutting, add a scoop of whip cream and slather with cherries!
