Preparation

To Make the Brownies:

  1. Preheat oven to 390°F.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
  3. Grease a baking dish (approximately 10x7 inches) with the extra coconut oil. Transfer the dough to the baking dish and spread it evenly.
  4. Bake for about 25 minutes and then let cool a bit.

To Make the Filling and Icing:

  1. Start by smearing the peanut butter evenly over the chocolate brownie. If it's still a bit warm, it helps make the butter softer.
  2. Melt the dark chocolate in a small saucepan at low heat. When it's melted, mix in the remaining ingredients and – again – make an even layer on top of the nut butter.
  3. Store in the fridge to cool and let the chocolate top harden. Then enjoy!
