Dark Chocolate Brownies with a Cream Cheese Frosting



Preheat the oven to 180C and line a brownie tin with coconut oil and greaseproof paper

In a small bowl mix the flax seeds with the water, mix well and leave to sit to create a gel consistency

Mix the almond flour, cacao, baking powder, salt and coconut sugar in a separate bowl, stir until well combined

To this, add the flax seed gel, almond butter, maple syrup and coconut oil before stirring to create a smooth batter

Pour brownie mix into the lined brownie tin and bake for 30 minutes

Leave to cool completely while you create the frosting by whipping the almond milk cheese with vanilla and maple syrup (add more to taste if needed)

Spread frosting over brownies and slice into ten pieces, best eaten the day of frosting
