This paper concerns an extension of discrete gradient methods to finite-dimensional Riemannian manifolds termed discrete Riemannian gradients, and their application to dissipative ordinary differential equations. This includes Riemannian gradient flow systems which occur naturally in optimization problems. The Itoh--Abe discrete gradient is formulated and applied to gradient systems, yielding a derivative-free optimization algorithm. The algorithm is tested on two eigenvalue problems and two problems from manifold valued imaging: interferometric synthetic aperture radar denoising and diffusion tensor imaging denoising.
