Vanilla Almond Brownie

Vanilla Almond Brownie

A brownie that isn’t chocolate – what’s the point?  I 80% agree that there is no point in making a chocolate free brownie…but 20% of the time I get it…and after eating these Vanilla Almond Brownies I get it 50-100% of the time.  Seriously they are rich, buttery, and flavored with just the right amount of almond and vanilla flavor.  As I was eating them I considered giving up chocolate F.O.R.E.V.E.R.  No worries – I did eventually come to my senses once I came out of my vanilla coma, but these are definitely good enough to make you forget about chocolate for a moment at least.

Plus, as I have mentioned before;  I have a weird dad that doesn’t like chocolate…so I like to make things that he might enjoy every once in awhile, especially since he is my most devoted and loyal reader.  One of these days I will make him a batch of these without eating them all first – one day. 

These brownies are topped with a coconut almond frosting that add the perfect amount of lightness to the richer brownie.  It compliments the brownie perfectly – so I highly recommend including the frosting!  Plus who doesn’t love frosting?
