Gluten Free Brownies With A Coconut CBD Frosting

Written By Joseph Jackson 04 May 2019

These are grown-up brownies—and not just because of their CBD-spiked frosting: The semisweet chocolate and cocoa powder make the flavours deep, dark, and rich.

Gluten Free Brownies With A Coconut CBD Frosting

 MAKES 16

12 tablespoons salted butter or vegan alternative

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

1¼ cups coconut sugar

4 large eggs, at room temperature

⅛ teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

6 tablespoons arrowroot

1½ cups chopped walnuts

 

FOR THE COCONUT CBD FROSTING

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup full-fat coconut milk

1. Preheat your oven to 180ºC

2. Warm a saucepan over very low heat. Add the butter and chocolate chips and mix until melted. Remove from heat and add the coconut sugar. Mix thoroughly, then add the eggs, salt, and vanilla extract. Mix vigorously until the batter goes from grainy to thick and smooth. Add the cocoa powder and arrowroot, then fold in the nuts.

3. Butter a 9×9-inch baking pan and line the bottom with parchment paper. Pour the batter into the pan and bake in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the center is just set.

4. While the brownies bake, make the coconut CBD frosting: Place a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Add the chocolate and stir until melted. Carefully remove the bowl from the heat and whisk in the coconut milk, vanilla, CBD oil, and salt. The frosting will be quite runny but will firm up after you let it set in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

5. When the brownies are completely cooled, spread the set frosting on top.
