I am now on a dairy free diet due to my son’s suspected dairy allergy and so I have been on a baking spree making whatever I can to keep my sweet tooth happy. I’m learning all these cool acronyms (DF:dairy free) and reading labels like whoa! Plus, it’s been a new eye opening challenge to find recipes that contain no dairy.
I saw this recipe on Deliciously Ella and changed a few things which was not probably for the best. But my creative bug got the best of me and I used what I had. I will say the frosting I added on top (not part of her reciepe) is the best part and is an easy 2 ingredient mix that I found on Oh She Glows blog. For the brownies it was sort of essential to have a food processor and well I didn’t have one so the mixture wasn’t quite right. I also used oat flour instead of buckwheat flour and I think that caused these to be less than fluffy. Either way, they tasted okay. Not sure I will make the brownies again or if I do I will use regular flour. The frosting is a MUST try though. It’s legit goooood.

**If you want exact measurements, check that girls blog for her exact recipe. I used what I had and went by taste and it worked out great.
1. Place can of coconut milk in fridge overnight. When you open the can pour the liquid out and spoon out the hard coconut cream.
2. Put the solid cream and chocolate chips in a sauce pan and heat until melted.
3. Place melted mixture in a bowl and put in the fridge to harden for several hours. Remove and use a mixer to whip it into frosting. Enjoy!!
