Ingredients

    Brownies:

    • 1/4 cup coconut oil
    • 1/4 cup butter, softened
    • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
    • 3/4 cup cane sugar
    • 3/4 cup cacao powder
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/4 cup brown rice flour
    • 1/4 cup gluten free oat flour
    • 1 Tbsp spirulina powder
    • 1 cup crunchy almond butter

    Matcha Glaze 

    • 3.5 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted and still warm
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1 Tbsp honey
    • 1/2 Tbsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha

Directions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Grease an 8" x 8" 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 one 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 one 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.
