a delicious topping for your favorite brownies
free from: gluten, dairy and refined sugar. this is vegan too!
I personally love frosting on everything–cake, cookies, brownies, a spoon… When Otto’s Naturals sent me some of their new grain free brownie mix I knew I had to make them into a childhood classic.
Introducing: COSMIC BROWNIES
Who didn’t love cosmic brownies as a kid?!
With your fave brownie mix (get Otto’s grain free one here – code “livwell” for 10% off), use this frosting recipe and some sprinkles to recreate this classic at home!
This is gluten free, dairy free, refined-sugar free and vegan!
The following makes frosting for one tray of brownies:
- 3 tbsp vegan butter
- 1/4 cup non-dairy milk (I used almond)
- 1 cup monkfruit
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- Toppings: sprinkles (I used Supernatural sprinkles)
First bake your brownies. While those are cooling, place a saucepan on medium heat. Add in all ingredients and stir lightly until melted. Once mixture is fully bubbling, set timer for a minute. Then take the frosting off the heat and let cool for 1-2 minutes.
Beat the mixture until thick, you can do so with a whisk or spatula. This should look like a thick syrup and get harder to stir. Once thick, pour over cooled brownies. Add sprinkles then led settle. It will take about 3-5 minutes to harden. Then enjoy! Best stored in fridge.
