Craving the most chocolatey, fudgey brownies that are so good, you could (metaphorically) die? Well, look no further, because my Death by Chocolate Brownies are THE only brownie recipe that you need, period. These chocolatey, fudgey squares practically melt in your mouth, and the best part is, they’re topped with a homemade frosting AND rainbow sprinkles. Plus, these bad boys are also gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and paleo-friendly, so they’re the perfect better-for-you treat.
Friends, are you a center brownie type of person, or an edge brownie type of person? For me, I am an edge brownie person all the way. Give me a soft and chewy brownie with a nice crispy edge, and I will be happy all day! Okay, maybe not all day, but you do know what they say… a brownie a day keeps the doctor away. I’m joking, but wouldn’t that be nice?!
No, but in all seriousness, I truly believe that brownies are an underrated dessert. I mean, who doesn’t love a chocolatey square, baked warm, and slathered with frosting and sprinkles? I know I do, and if I’m being honest, I will never turn down a good brownie – let alone, one as good as these!
As I mentioned earlier, these decadent brownies are not only delicious, but they truly are the ultimate better-for-you treat. They’re gluten-free and grain-free thanks to the coconut flour, refined sugar-free thanks to the coconut sugar and maple syrup, vegan-friendly thanks to the oat milk and flax-egg substitute, and they’re paleo-friendly, too! If you love brownies but have had to stray away from the traditional recipes because of allergens or dietary preferences, then this recipe will be right up your alley.
Making these brownies really consists of three different parts: first, making the brownies themselves, second, making the frosting, and third, putting them all together and topping them with sprinkles! While the last part is arguable the simplest and easiest, this recipe is really quite simple to put together – and, not to mention, totally delicious and worth the effort!
To make these brownies, simply mix all of your brownie ingredients together (the eggs, coconut sugar, tahini, vanilla extract, coconut flour, cocoa powder, oat milk, baking powder, salt, and chocolate chips) and pour your mixture into a greased and/or parchment paper lined 8×8 baking dish. Bake for 19-22 minutes, or until you can stick a toothpick in the brownies and the toothpick comes out clean.
Then, while your brownies are baking, make the frosting – it’ll save you time and keep you from scrolling on your phone while your brownies bake! Simply mix all of your frosting ingredients together in a bowl (tahini, cocoa powder, oat milk, and maple syrup) until the mixture is smooth and there are no lumps. You can do this by hand, or in a stand mixer!
Finally, once your brownies are finished and COMPLETELY cool (this is the key!) frost them and top them with a generous serving of sprinkles. You can serve them and eat them right away, or store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week! Yum!
