Flour-less Brownies w/ Mint Frosting

Hey y'all! Y'all know that I have to eat gluten-free but am an avid baker and chocolate lover, so finding the perfect flour-less brownie is a real task. Today I am sharing my favorite flour-less brownies. Now these brownies don't just take a regular brownies recipe and substitute regular flour for a gluten free flour.. no! These are without flour at all which is honestly better on touchy tummies. HOWEVER, make sure you spray the pans you use first, without flour, they can get sticky if you aren't prepared!

These little devils are sure to be a hit paired with some mint frosting, but if you aren't a fan of the frosting, the brownies are just perfect on their own as well.

 1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tablespoon vanilla
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
3-4 tablespoons heavy cream
3/4 teaspoon mint extrat
3 drops of green food coloring

Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray your square brownie pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter and chocolate chips in 30 second increments, stirring in between. Set aside.
PLace the eggs and sugar in a large bowl and beat on high for about 5 minutes in an electric mixer. The mixture should double in volume. Add vanilla and salt and cocoa powder. Beat on medium speed until just combined. Stir in the melted chocolate and butter mixture.
Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
For the Frosting:
Beat softened butter on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add powdered sugar, cream, and mint extract. Beat for another 3 minutes.
(Add more powdered sugar is the frosting in too thin, and more cream if the frosting in too thick)
Add food coloring and mix well.

Let your brownies cool completely before slicing and frosting each one for you guests! Top with Andes mints if you desire. Enjoy y'all!

Hope you enjoy your Monday! I will talk to you again on Wednesday!
