Scale

Ingredients

Brownies

  • ¼ cup natural, unsalted almond butter
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons water, whisk together, set for 15 mins)
  • ½ cup finely ground, blanched almond flour
  • ¾ cup vegan chocolate chips

Chocolate Frosting

  • ¼ cup natural, unsalted creamy almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
  2. Make the brownies: in a medium bowl, whisk together almond butter, coconut sugar, maple syrup and coconut oil. Whisk until it resembles caramel.
  3. Add cocoa powder in ¼ cup increments, whisking until well mixed and thick like frosting. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Whisk in vanilla, salt and flax eggs, until well incorporated. Using a rubber spatula, fold in almond flour until you get the consistency of soft dough or very thick batter, and no flour patches remain.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour batter into pan. Using the rubber spatula, smooth batter into an even layer.
  5. Bake for 28-36 mins. Mine took about 30 minutes. Cool for 2-3 hours. It must be completely cool before frosting. Once cool, it’s time to make the frosting.
  6. Make the frosting: In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the frosting ingredients: almond butter, maple syrup, cocoa powder and water. Whisk until this mixture thickens and resembles melty frosting.
  7. Lift brownies out of the baking pan and set onto a baking sheet. Pour frosting over brownies. Using a rubber spatula, spread the frosting into an even layer. Place in the freezer for 20-25 minutes to harden the frosting tops for easier slicing. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.

Notes

– Adapted from my Best Vegan Brownies and Ultimate Fudgy Paleo Vegan Brownies.
– Store in an airtight container for up to a week. Store in the refrigerator for firm, fudge-like brownies. Frosting will absorb into the brownies after 1-2 days, creating thicker, fudgier brownies.
– These brownies freeze well. Wrap in parchment or wax paper. Store in an airtight freezer-friendly airtight container for up to a month. Thaw at room temperature for 30 minutes before enjoying. Or, heat in the microwave for 15-20 seconds.
