Heart Shaped Cake Brownies!

Written by Nikki Velez | February 05, 2016

Yes, the name 'Cake Brownies' is very strange. We totally get it. In our defense, we really couldn't think of a better way to describe these. They are the perfect combination of a cake cookie and a brownie, so we figured the best way to describe them would be calling them Cake Brownies. They were so tasty we had to make them a second time, just to ensure our taste buds weren't totally wrong the first time. And they were even better the second time! These treats are made with love and with a heart shape cookie cutter will make the perfect homemade treat for your Valentine! We hope you love them as much as we do!

Makes an 8x8 pan of cake brownies (or about 10 2" heart shaped units)

Ingredients:

4 Tbsp butter

1 Cup Dark Chocolate Fudge flavor coconut butter

1 Cup maple syrup

1 1/2 Cups hazelnut flour or other nut flour (we like Bob's Red Mill)

3 eggs

*Optional, add 1/4 Cup of dark chocolate chips 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

grease an 8x8" glass pan

Warm coconut butter and butter to soften

Mix all the ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl until you get a thick creamy mixture 

Pour into pan and bake for 13-15 minutes.

Let cool for 10 minutes then cut with knife or cookie cutters for cute shapes.
