Total time: 
Serves: 9 large brownies
A chewy, fudgy brownie topped with a creamy, sweetened SunButter layer and slathered with chocolate ganache will solve any chocolate craving. A triple threat, this triple layered dessert is rich and satisfying. This is free of: gluten, dairy, egg, peanut and tree nuts.
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a square 9x9 baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients for the brownies.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the flax seed meal and the water. Allow it to sit while you melt the coconut oil. In another small microwave safe bowl, put your measured coconut oil. Warm it in the microwave until it is melted. Pour both of the wet mixtures into the dry ingredients. Add the vanilla and stir until everything is incorporated.
  4. Pour the batter into the greased baking dish, and flatten it with wet or greased hands.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes (depending on how fudgy you like your brownies.)
  6. Allow them to cool completely.
  7. While they are cooling, make the 2nd layer. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine all of the filling except for the rice milk—being sure to scrap the bottom and sides. Slowly add the rice milk, until you reach your desired consistency. If it’s too thin, you can always add more powdered sugar. You’ll want this quite thick, as sitting on top of the brownies will soften the layer.
  8. Spread this onto the cooled brownies.
  9. Finally, in a small microwave safe bowl place the chocolate chips and shortening. Melt on medium heat for 20-30 seconds at a time, stirring after every time until the chocolate chips are completely melted. Pour the chocolate onto the SunButter layer and spread evenly with a spatula.
  10. Place the brownies in the fridge to allow the chocolate ganache to harden. Cut into square and eat. Best if eaten right away. If you need to store them, they freeze great, or may keep for a day or two in an air-tight container.
