Wrap yourself up with a with a mug of freshly-steeped tea and these richly dark snowflake brownies. Any snow storm will turn to a delightful flurry in just one bite.
1 cup coconut sugar
1/3 cup sifted coconut flour
3/4 cup sifted cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons of Coconut Bangin' Butter
3/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
⅔ cup of your favorite dark chocolate bar, chopped
3 large eggs, room temperature
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or another dark chocolate!)
2 tablespoons of Coconut Beckah’s Bangin’ Butter
1/4 cup milk of almond milk (or preferred milk)
1/4 cup coconut oil (use unrefined coconut oil for even more coconut flavor!)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Topping: ½ cup of shredded coconut flakes
1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F (175 °C) and line an 8"×8" dish rubbed with coconut oil.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Set aside.
3. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and eggs. 4. Stir until combined.
5. Add the dry mixture to the wet and stir until just combined.
6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the brownies appear set in the middle. Let brownies cool completely as you prepare frosting.
Texture note: Since these are made with natural ingredients, this means they make differently than traditional brownies. The texture is best once they're cold!
7. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, mix together all the ingredients. (Microwaving is okay too on a lower setting)
8. Stir until melted and completely smooth.
9. Let cool for about 10-20 minutes or until no longer warm, but still pourable, and then pour over the brownies.
10. Top with a generous sprinkle of shredded coconut flakes
11. Place the pan in the refrigerator and chill for 1-2 hours at least.
12. Once chilled, cut into 16 squares.
These divine slices of heaven will melt in your mouth, literally.
Storage note: Unfrosted brownies can also be kept at room temperature for five days, but store in the fridge for two weeks.
