Ingredients

    Brownies

    • ¼ cup coconut oil
    • ¼ cup butter, softened
    • ¾ cup coconut sugar
    • ¾ cup cane sugar
    • ¾ cup cacao powder
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 eggs
    • ¼ cup brown rice flour
    • ¼ cup gluten free oat flour
    • 1 Tbsp spirulina powder
    • 1 cup crunchy almond butter

    Matcha Glaze 

    • ½ Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and still warm
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1 Tbsp honey
    • ½ Tbsp Aiya Culinary Grade Matcha

Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
    2. Grease an 8"x8" baking dish and line it with parchment paper.
    3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the softened butter and coconut oil until slightly fluffy, about 1 minute. Add both sugars and beat for an additional minute.
    4. Add the cacao, salt, and spirulina. Combine.
    5. Add both eggs and the vanilla extract and beat for 1 minute until smooth.
    6. Add both flours and mix until everything is just coming together.
    7. Fold in the almond butter with a spoon or spatula.
    8. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and evenly spread the batter with a knife or spatula.
    9. Bake for 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out mostly clean.
    10. Remove from the oven and set on a wire rack to cool.
    11. Once the brownies are slightly cooled but still warm, begin making the glaze.
    12. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients and whisk until smooth.
    13. Pour over the warm brownies and smooth it out with a knife or spatula. 
    14. Sprinkle with slivered almonds, or anything else that you desire.
    15. Cut brownies into 12 or 16 squares and enjoy!  

    Note: It's important that the brownies are still warm when you pour the glaze on top, otherwise the glaze will just clump up and get messy, instead of forming a glossy coating.
