Brownies + Cashew Buttercream Frosting (Paleo, Gluten Free!)

I merged two recipes here (and altered it slightly) + made some paleo, gluten free brownies with cashew buttercream frosting!


Brownies:

  • 1 cup coconut sugar

  • 1/2 cup cacao powder

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)

  • 1/4 cup coconut (or almond) milk

  • 6 large eggs

  • 2 tablespoons paleo or vegan chocolate protein powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Cashew Butter Frosting:

  • 1 cup cashew butter

  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk 

  • 3 tbsp. maple syrup or honey

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F and grease the a cake pan/baking dish with coconut oil

  2. Combine all the ingredients for the BROWNIES ONLY in a food processor and blend until completely smooth

  3. Pour the batter into the pan and cook for 30-35 minutes. Use a toothpick to test (if it comes out clean, its done)

  4. Next, blend all FROSTING INGREDIENTS in a food processor until completely smooth

  5. Once the brownies are fully cooked, spread the frosting evenly over them


The recipe's I merged were from Paleo Gluten Free + Minimalist Baker (2 amazing healthy food bloggers!):
