Vegan Brownies

WP_20160321_002

I will advertise you that you won’t be able to stop eating these Vegan Brownies! They are perfectly cakey, fluffy, thick and gooey. They are so rich in nutrients and flavor because they have coconut flour, coffee and almonds. I should really call these brownies: Crunchy Coconut Mocha Vegan Brownies but the name is too long to pronounce, eeeh? So I simply called them, Vegan brownies. These has been my favorite brownies of all and I feel completely free of guilty. I made a Vanilla Cashew Frosting that makes them even better! I dare to say that they are a complete course instead of only a dessert. I invite you to make them ahead and tell me your opinion!
