Spring is finally here in Mammoth and I couldn't be more excited. I am ready for warm weather and spring inspired desserts! So coconut and fruity flavors are both on my mind right now. I guess that's how I thought of these Raspberry Frosted Vegan Brownies with Toasted Coconut. These just scream Spring, and they look adorable too with light pastel pink frosting. Find the recipe below.
